dk Report Considers Calling it Quits

I've recently received a new business proposal that I'm giving serious consideration. Should I accept, it's unlikely that I would have time to continue The dkReport. No decision has been made, but I thought I'd run it by everyone here first.

A new, three-star US hotel is in the planning stages (location undisclosed), and I've been asked to sit as chairman and run the operation.

Hotel management would be a new pursuit for me, although I'm an experienced entrepreneur with over 25 years building and running my own service businesses. Also, I worked in the restaurant industry for 11 years growing up, and know first-hand the joys and pains of the hospitality industry.

The good news came in the following letter, which I thought I'd share with you. It's obviously a foreign company, and the odd syntax and grammar has an old-world charm that I find endearing.

The mr_tonyadamson... email address by itself is proof enough of the seriousness of the offer (which you should wholeheartedly accept 'cause opportunities like this don't ever knock twice on your door).
You should also check out this silver mine in Congo that Mr. Knogoumbou emailed me about :)

Can't you get the eMuckdog to do this for you on the cheap and pocket the difference?
