Welcome to Techstbooks. I am a web enthusiast like you are, but I have a slight problem: outside of a little HTML, I don’t know anything about code. I just know how I want things to work and through a ton of trial and error, I’ve figured out to get from point A to point Z with the coding ability of a baboon. More importantly, along the way, I’ve compiled a solid internet business education.

I used to work as the Director of Sales and Marketing for an allergy and hormone therapy clinic in Austin, Texas but then I got “laid off”. I have founded one startup that was dead on arrival, since apparently there are other people selling poker supplies online. I also have founded one startup that was a disaster to end all disasters as my partners were (1) lazy and unable to do anything remotely resembling work and (2) talented yet scatterbrained, leaving him also unable to do anything remotely resembling work.   And like you, I have a stack of binders and notebooks full of ideas and sketches and notes and references for ideas that I hope to work on as soon as I get my current projects and obligations in order.

Now I run a million dollar wholesale distribution business and I’m thankful for all the lessons I learned along the way (even from those aforementioned partners) and I’m here to impart that knowledge on to you.

Hopefully, my experience combining business and the internet after starting with little experience with either will be of some use to you.

Thanks for stopping by.
