About 12 years ago my classmates Justin, Ardith and I put together a media company as part of a final school project. Since graduating from ITT with bachelor's degree in hand, all that time ago ;-), I've had a very exciting corporate career which eventually led me to Chicago and beyond. But the idea of owning my own business was never too far in the back of my mind as was returning to the Northwest. Now that I'm back in Portland I felt I could give the “owning my own company” idea a fresh start. So I've been working on reviving my once school project MediaCor. After some time well spent and a few site redesigns I'm finally able to introduce MediaCor Online. I'm focusing on some key areas including local small business website design, artist e-commerce storefronts, and podcast production. I already have some great clients but one project I'm extremely excited about is Café press and a partnership with my folks. Basically we're re-purposing their artwork to be made available on variety of merchandise to be printed on demand as its sold. This will minimize their overhead, maximize their profits, and make their art available on merchandise it never has been before. Be sure to check out their site! You can read more about this on the MediaCor website if you're interested and I will be writing future blog posts about this exciting project. Anyway I just wanted to introduce my new business venture to my friends and colleagues. Take a look at my website and tell me what you think by leaving a comment on my feedback page.
I also rely on word-of-mouth advertising and referrals so please recommend MediaCor to your friends, family, and colleagues. It's very much appreciated! Here's to happy creating :-)
Have you watched the Netflix series House of Cards yet? I am thoroughly enjoying this series but even if the subject matter is not quite your cup of tea the concept of the all you can eat TV show is pretty cool and I think the future of television. Netflix released all 13 episodes of the series House Of Cards at once. There's been a lot of debate on whether this would be a good thing or not. It certainly goes against decades of television programming. You don't have quite the same water cooler effect as you would with a weekly TV show and might someone who's watched later episodes then you spoil the plot line? In my book, no pun intended, it's similar to releasing a novel.
I'm just curious how important is it to you to get your mail daily? What I mean is with everything coming via e-mail these days other than packages which could be delivered by UPS how much do you use your physical US postal mailbox? How often do you send letters these days? Take the quick poll after the break...
I am an upbeat energetic individual and believe most people would describe me as being easy-going, patient, and tech savvy. In my youth I was a “tinkerer” and hence have grown up to be handy with most gadgets and computer tasks.
I am often called upon by my friends, family, and co-workers to help with technical, electronic or a computer related problems which I am very good at helping with. I have the ability to speak in laymen everyday terms and have a patient show how attitude.
