I started my own business and already have 3 paying clients on board with more on the horizon. I placed this ad and now almost think it was too good of a deal. Now I just hope I can keep up :) Anyways, I am still looking for an internship but have an interview for one on Monday. Thanks again for the Joomla experience!
