6 months and some long grindy hours later, I was banned from just about every poker room in the world - albeit, I had a pretty good chunk of money laying around once it was all said and done.

Ok, yes it's not that exciting, but when you read what I'm about to tell you - you might re-consider.

Small businesses can't afford the upkeep of internet marketing.

It's true, and I would manage campaigns for businesses all the time that would yield results, but none that justified the amount of time that you have to spend studying dead times, open slots and creating deals accordingly.

I'm starting this from scratch, and I don't even have a blog setup yet on the website.. so I suppose this should be interesting!
