Grow some. I did. There is lots of doc's out there. You just have to take some 
time to learn it. Just like anything else...learning to ride a bike for 
example. It takes trials and tribulations. My company is a two man crew. I took 
time to learn much about MT, but not all yet...I still have days we are sitting 
around tweedling our thumbs, I use it to learn something new about Tik! And not 
messing with our secretary...J/K!
