Not really. I had one offer from a guy in Ottawa that wanted to try
tele-mentoring, but the negotiations sort of petered out. I have
attended a couple of Pragmatic Studios and had one session with a local
consultant.

The courses were helpful but are not really what I needed when I posted
that original message. The consultant is a good guy but, again, not
exactly what I need/desire.

This forum/mailing list provides much of the assistance that I obtain,
albeit at little slower rate than what I desire. I am finding the
Pragmatic Alumni mailing list helpful as well.

Lack of peer consultation is one of the big drawbacks working as a sole
practitioner, but that circumstance is not likely to change so that I
must accommodate it as best as I can.
