One of the things that I find the most valuable about Flying Solo, aside from all of the quality business development content of course, is that it’s a great way for solos and small business owners to engage with each other and offer each other support and their services.
I was wondering – how difficult would it be to build in a name-linking feature into the forums (ala Facebook). If someone was looking for a particular type of service, I would love to say “I have dealt with so-and-so that is also a Flying Solo member, you should talk to @Her”. That way, the person looking for the service can immediately check out their profile, and the person being mentioned gets alerted (so that they can jump in and add their 2c).
If it’s a way to have more Flying Solos engaging and doing more business with each other, I think that would be a really great thing.
