    This is a great idea indeed, I want to encourage you guys to be more business like.

    I have an idea of which i want to bring in more creativity and innovation into, that is taking it out of the traditional way of running that business into another form, my challenge is how to package it more professionally.

    I would appreciate your kind advice and suggestions.
    Thanks
