Q 3. What inspired you to (start a new business venture) or (to make significant changes in an existing business)? How did the idea for your business come about?
Ans: Spending 30-40K per year in working to achieve Waypoints SEO and Digital Marketing goal caused me to not see clearly what we were spending on and what results we were getting. When I dug into SEO and digital marketing I learned how to change this experience and it created a high level of excitement as well as love for the art of digital marketing. As Waypoint has grown successfully, my business Partner Dan Wilson and I made the decision to expand into this arena and create SEO Global Media. Although still involved with Waypoint on a day to day basis, most of my role has been shifted to SEO Global Media in which Waypoint SOlutions Group is a client. Our mission is to focus on providing the same proven technigues and experience to SEO Global Media and Waypoint Clients. (edit and adjust)
