    I just thought about how many people I meet on a daily basis through school, work, the gym, or basketball that have something to offer or allow me to get my foot in the door somewhere.

    I figured I would make a post about NTers getting some local connections in the MD/DC/VA area. You never know where you might be when you might need that hook-up at the club, work at a local shoe store, or know where the courts are to get a good run.

    I have family in DC and Northern VA, so I'm often up in the area, but I live in Richmond and work at Sprint.

    All ages, jobs, areas.

    Is this post looking for people who *think* they are important, or those that actually keep it *really* moving?

    Either way, need anything/advice on the sneaker front, house/real estate front, education front, from D.C. to Carolina... If I don't know or got it, I know the person to contact to get it.

    I'm a legal hustler who invests in real people.

    Check the track record.

    if you stay at Towne Park affiliated hotels (Four Seasons, Mandarin, Crystal Gateway Marriot, Hilton Crystal City, Sheraton Crystal City, Watergate, etc..), and i happen to be there (i switch around frequently). ask for Wes.

    i might be able to help you out with rooms, especially the hotels in crystal city. but parking will definitely be covered :smile: [​IMG]

    Living Fresh, not to be nit'pickin...but you need to purchase a web-domain so you can have an official email address.

    If you wanna convince people to come to you for investing, you gotta have the professional package...gmail emails ain't gonna be the best help. Personally...I wouldn't take you seriously...on the strength of the email address...

    You need somehting [email protected]...

    Just a suggestion...

    Living Fresh--

    As I have stated before and Lavan reinterated, owning an actual domain can really enhance what you do. You don't need an elaborate website with 10,000 different things going on, but it will help you project a more professional image. The more professional you appear and ARE, the more you can begin to charge people for your services. It will also allow people to refer their friends & family without them having to commit to contacting you to see what you are all about. Ex. You know how some people go to look at cars well after the dealership has closed? Why? They simply want to take their time and look without being sold to at that particular moment.

    The one thing I would definitely put on my site if I were you- TESTIMONIALS from previous clients.



    With all of that said, I am about to open a general consulting firm. I need to stop giving information away.
