Hi Gillon,

Thanks for the invite.  My pleasure to accept.  I have set up the processes for a number of large BDCs.  If I can ever be of help let me know.  And you can achieve your goal if you don't take your eyes off it long enough to see your obstacles.  Darn obstacles, always trying to get in the way....don't let them!

Much success in 2013,
