You sound like me 2 years ago, and when it comes to networking, I still have the kinds of issues you do. First thing I did 2 years ago was build a website promoting my web design/development services. One year later I started my own web hosting company, which is now starting to bring me customers at the point when they start a new project, and work out well for me over the long term. But finding new clients is still slow, so like you I'm focused on building a network (currently hidden on my site). I think building and owning a site like this which is a free PHPnuke download is a cool and cheap way to build your network online (if you're like me, you don't want a business that attracts customers through spam). In the coming months I will be re-launching my original site with similar capabilities as this one.

If you are interested in this kind of project, please feel free to contact me at info@sohosme.com subject: Your Portal
