Jumping ahead, skipping over the college years, early jobs (a stint at Citibank, would you believe?), and finding career direction, I’ll move on to the entrepreneurial leap.
Having done the corporate thing a few times, it was time to put my stake in the ground (per se). Cornucopia Creations launched in 1995 providing primarily graphic design and copy writing services.
But even in the mid-1990s the writing was on the wall: The internet would come to dominate the business world. Adapt or perish! And so I embarked upon learning website design and various digital marketing services.
How hard could it be? I managed to program complex theater lighting design programs back in college when Denison University’s computer systems were relegated to the dorm basements with rows of dot-matrix printers. Little did I realize…
It wasn’t until 2009 before I felt I had the expertise to offer website design services. Since that time, it’s become the core of my business. But I continue to offer graphic design and copy writing services, among other key essentials, such as email marketing programs. After all, they are all inter-connected. One relies upon another to continue the flow of new business.
