A favor to ask: help me promote my new business!

Mylotters have helped me in the past, so I'm sure you won't let me down now. I do on-line proofreading/editing/grammatical analysis for people who speak English as a second language. Just today, I registered a new domain name and am working to build my new site: eslquestion.com. Basically it works like this: Someone sends me a specific question about grammar, punctuation, or vocabulary, I send them a quote for the answer. When they agree to the quote, I send them a detailed explanation (and probably a free exercise or two) and charge them through PayPal. For the 15 years that I taught, I saw that most of my executives just had a list of these sorts of questions for our 'lesson' (most of the time, we never got to MY lesson plans). So, it's what students really want to know, and it's cost- and time-effective for them. If you know anyone who could use this service, my e-mail address is: answer@eslquestion.com. If you should have any advice for me, I'd gladly welcome it. Thanks for reading.

Hey, I wish I could do the same thing as you. I have recently retired and I feel a need to work at home to keep me in circulation and of course to earn extra money. I used to work in a multilateral banking institution as admin assistant and I am good at proofreading and typing lengthy quality reports. I am an Asian (Filipino) but I am proud to say I have better English than some of our foreign executives in the bank but they are paid handsomely in dollars as professional staff, while the hardworking local staff are paid peanuts. I am not very good at doing business through the internet. Hope you could help me.

I'll keep you in mind. Hopefully, before long I'll be looking for help. Thanks.
