Great story and inspirtional for all of us. However, maybe that guy shoudl spend dome of all that money he made this year and pay a professional to redo his website because at the moment I would be slightly put off by doing any business with him.
I thought that article would give a bit of uplift to some. Living here in Silicon Valley (San Jose) all we read about is the layoffs and the doom of the dot coms.
Most of those that failed, were handed mege bucks and just went crazy. Like any business, you half to have a business plan.
Agree with Nicky on his website. But with his earning of $200,000 bucks, maybe that just shows we all spend to much time in design when the average visitor or client doesn't really give a hoot about how nice the site looks.???? It could use a facelift though.
By the way, (in the paper) there was a breakdown of what his expenses were for the year. If anyone would be interested I'll post them.
