Help Ned launch “Your Very Next Step” Newsletter for November 2007

This is to announce the first issue of “Your Very Next Step” newsletter,

and represents the first step of a new adventure for me, and an

adventure I hope that we can share together.

I will establish a website in 2008 for this newsletter and increase the

newsletter to a weekly. But for now, the next two issues will be

monthlies as I try to develop a personality for this community and this

attempt to bring us together to share ideas, encouragement and direction

to help us all step off on paths to new places.
