Thank you. Even though I research every person I deal with before the fact, I still have this fear of getting involved with the wrong person. It's scary. It's a lot like dating a person who is sweet and nice at first, then suddenly turns evil after the honeymoon is over. I know that being careful in this profession is a good thing, but I don't want to be so guarded that I wind up blowing an opportunity with someone who is good and helpful.
Anyhow, enough about my trust issues. For better or worse, I'll update as we roll along.
