    Wink Needing a mentor...

    I'm finally organized enough and ready to pursue my Masters. Is there anyone out there available to help assist me through this?

    I'd greatly appreciate it!

    Cheers!

    Default Suggestion ...

    Hi Jill;

    I have a suggestion for you. I have a friend who got his Masters, in 5 years, due to hooking up with a Master for guidance. He was about 1½ hours away so the photographer could go to him if need be. Otherwise, he would send originals in the mail for review. (prior to e-mail)

    So, I suggest finding someone in California. In the case of my friend, both were in Pa. and members of the PPAofPa. I hope you are a member of the California affiliate or one of the smaller groups. That way, besides using e-mail and visiting you can also hook up at a meeting.

    Good Luck

    Even though I am pretty sure you don't mean it that way, Craig, reading your response with the colloquialisms intact is making me smile broadly.

    since were looking for a master mentor to hook up with, how about making sure to look for someone who is hanged well in recent print comps.

    ...and Levesque is probably rolling on the floor with that one!

    If your business depends on you, you don't own a business-you have a job. And it's the worst job in the world because you're working for a lunatic... You can't close it when you want to, because if it's closed you don't get paid. You can't leave it when you want to, because if you leave there's nobody there to do the work. You can't sell it when you want to, because who wants to buy a job?

    As Emily Latella used to say, "Ah, well, that's different. Nevermind".
