Okay, I'm new here but not new to FLM or working for myself(20 yrs running and going through an engine change, as a result of reading FLM). So I'll bite: Omerta is not a 'real' person, I(and others, I'm sure) would venture to guess.
Some may be nurturing, encouraging - others, like Vigilante(amen,brother!), said it like it needs to be said. Any of 20-somethings with the attitude on display w/ the initial post merit the patience of a saint. I've done plenty of time in that realm and am less inclined to divy and parse it out without some qualification that displays an inclination of caring and a degree of talent.
So call a spade,a spade here.
If this was a sincere post, Omerta in for a rough, rough ride....
