Hi, I was hoping to create an application with multiple user types;
examples: consumers, businesses, employers, etc... where each user type
would have a specialized profile. As I'm new to rails I'm not really
sure how to handle registration. I already have a basic registration,
login, and profile page but nothing to handle multiple user types. I was
wondering if anyone knew of any plugins or examples/tutorials that could

Or maybe an example of a premium/free setup

You should look into using roles for different users checkout ACL
