I sold that first website in August of 1995, and has continued my web solutions company offering design, development and deployment, usability or support services since. The previous work experience as the marketing director for an ISP, radio sales, television news announcer, have all have helped to build my corporation. 19 years plus online doesn't hurt a bit; to be a web developer.
