Top ProductA secure "electronic storefront" which allows business people safely to sell their products over the Internet.

Top Problem SolvedA local author was looking for an additional means to market and sell his books. I provided a website for him where people could read the first two chapters of his books for free and then order copies of the books on-line.

My Favorite BNI StoryI started by business in May of 2001. At that time, there was something of an economic downturn so business was slow. A major direct mailing/marketing campaign produced exactly ZERO results. Then 9/11 happened and my phone stopped ringing all together. I was about ready to give up. As fate would have it, I hurt my back shoveling snow in a late November snowstorm. I went to see my chiropractor and he made the point that Ihad not been in to see him in quite some time. I mentioned that I had started a new business and had no insurance and little money, that the business was in trouble and that I was about to give up. He said, "Why don't you come to breakfast with me next Tuesday?" Well, breakfast turned out to be a BNI meeting. I saw immediately how the value of networking could help my business so in January of 2002 I joined BNI and have been a member ever since. During that time, fully 90% of my business has come from referrals from fellow BNI members. I would not be in business today if it were not for BNI!

My Ideal Referral PartnerA business coach who works with people forming new companies. I would love to partner with these emerging businesses to develop a website which will bring customers to them and Help Them Make More Money!
