    "I was looking for some resources in regards to responding to an email introduction. I found this article at the http://money.usnews.com site / blog and it contained a lot of very useful information! Perhaps most informative (for me) was the idea to be timely...as I tend to batch my email. This can be a problem if the message requires a more immediate reply. Due to this, I have changed my email sorting to be more effective and polite to senders! It's a "must read"!"

    "I would like to say that this approach to this problem is a great idea. I had a friend suffering from a long time depression, which was caused by his small business failing. He owned a auto shop in the area and was short handed on technicians. I knew a gentleman who was a traveling technician but was looking to settle down and become a partner in something new. I used this format to introduce the two in a way that was professional and not awkward at all. They both got along great from the start and not even a week later they were in a partnership together. My business owner friend found some much needed help and was able to pull himself out of a crisis with the assistance of the new partner and I felt like I was a part of it too for introducing them. Currently the business is going strong and I am so glad I took a leap of faith in using this solution. It just works!"
