No, I did not see your email
A few weeks ago I received an important email from a connection of mine. They had asked me to contact a prospect, a small business needing a website that “does stuff”. The email message included the important note that the owners were anxious, had already done some shopping and had their budget ready and available.
It was the developer’s dream. They had graphics, had cash, were ready to add their own content, and needed it all in a reasonable time period for the person who could start by the beginning of February. I missed the message.
