Hey I can't believe this I also live in Fayettville but I'm working in NYC. I will be in NWA during the Christmas holiday. Lets have coffee and see how we can work together. If you get a chance, see if you can locate a copy of the NWA Business Journal (titled "40 under 40 Successful NWA Business People" from August 2006 which featured and article about me. I'm not under 40 but they needed a fashion consultant for the article :) Looking forward to meeting you.
