TarHeel NIck,

You missed my following post,
"
I'm looking for some mid-sized companies or organizations, particularly manufacturers, which are either profitable or otherwise financially well in NC, their tend to have a small IT staff and their sales team/VP usually wants more from their IT, many times their IT guys are short on meeting their sales/marketing team's needs/demands, I've done such a project for them before (but the venue that the manufacturer found me is not valid for me now), so, I can possibly talk to them to offer my IT expertise/service and sometimes meeting in person might help to increase trust etc...

There's another venue to get this type of company info, but data provided by that source (a NC state department) is not accurate at all. Btw, I've identified two key problems for them, and proposed to fix them for cheap but yesterday they told me they'll create a new application for it... What a waste of money! My fix would be from several hundreds of dollars to low thousand and fast solution vs. their system/application, which I suspect would cost at least 50k...
"

southbound_295 started to talk about
"
There are data centers west of Charlotte
",
good, but he didn't continue... I'd love to do some consulting work for them (not a full time job).

As it is, I still don't know what you're looking for, although this post was a start. Still pretty obfuscating, though, and I have no idea what specifically you are looking for. North Carolina has a lot of farm labor. You want to pick tomatoes? Slaughter chickens? There are lots of chicken processing plants.


I'm still going to direct you to read the Wikipedia page if you don't know any basic stuff about the state after living in Wilmington for 3 years.

Wikipedia is where I got the information on Tyrell County. It's very simple: search for "Wikipedia NC counties list" and click on each one to find points of interest. It takes a few seconds for each one.

"I'm still going to direct you to read the Wikipedia page if you don't know any basic stuff about the state after living in Wilmington for 3 years.", this type of condescending tune is not appreciated!!

Some one manipulated my post into negativity. Why people have such ill intention???

If my OP wasn't that clear then after some recent explanation it should. And yet, people keep on going off topic... I don't get it!

If you are trying to start a small consulting business in NC, look up the local Small Business & Technology Center--there is a branch office in Wilmington (I used to work for the HQ office years ago).

It's a FREE services for fledgling NC businesses, and they have resources to find the kind of info you're looking for, can help you set up a business plan, etc. You can state your actual need freely without worrying about being "eavesdropped on", if that seems to be your concern. Much more effective than posting vague requests on a social media website that deals mostly in gathering subjective opinions of places.

Truth is I intend to leave Wilmington, my real "baby" is a software product intended to enhance students learning called Knowledge NoteBook (it had traction including interest from students from the very best universities, not bluffing...), prior to landing some serious investment I must get some income come in to keep things going, hence, work a freelancer or consulting gig would be more appropriate for me for now. I appreciate your thought though.

A side note. I had a traffic ticket and had to go to court in Wilmington a while, the two judges were very professional and respectful. Wanted to send them each a letter to express such a thought but too many things going on now, hence, a note here instead.
