To Whom It May Concern:
Thanks for reading my post. Maybe it's this down economy, or maybe I'm just tired of being tied to an hourly rate, but after several years of careful contemplation I've finally decided to branch out on my own.
If you're at all like me, and share a strong interest in starting something of "your" own, this might be just the chance you've been waiting for.
Jeez that sounded contrived! How else do you do these things without seeming like some spam bot? Let me just say, I'm one guy, this is real, and you won't get a some bullsh*t auto reply from me (well, maybe just the acknowledgment email ;-)
Before responding, please be:
1. Currently employed and not looking for work, or not employed but can survive for 12 months without an income.
2. Interested in becoming an entrepreneur but still seeking the right idea.
3. Have an architect level background in enterprise application development but aren't afraid to get your hands dirty. You also have a resume and credentials to prove it.
4. Independent and not affiliated with any groups, organizations, or solicitors.
5. Have strong communication skills, and though you'd hate to be considered a sales guy, you can definitely do some heavy persuading.
If you fit the bill, and want to learn more, go to
Warm regards,

This is a definitely a naming violation. Plus it should be moved to blatant advertising.

Please forgive the name violation and the cross post.
I'm sure you understand that due to the nature of these things I have to maintain some level of anonymity.
This will not happen on this forum again if that is your preference.

I'm torn: Blatant Advertising or Meaningless Drivel?
Let's say Blatant Advertising.
