Hi, my name’s Griff. I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself and how I came to develop a company designed to help small businesses and nonprofits take advantage of the Internet like larger companies and organizations can. We all know those companies can hire staff that most small businesses and nonprofits can’t afford. I know this because I’ve been there.

I started working with nonprofits back in 1975. I had gotten a job with the Mayor’s Summer Youth Program in Buffalo, New York, and I was assigned to the West Side Civic Center near the corner of Grant and West Ferry Streets. It worked out well since the Center was the place I was hanging out most of the time. It was housed in a small and aging two story building that originally served as a library 100 years ago.

The purpose of the center was to give kids a place to gather and play in safety in what was a challenging neighborhood at the time and give them something better to do than just running around the streets and getting into trouble, or at least, that was the goal. For me, it became home for a couple of years. It was there I first started to learn about the value of a dollar and what it can really mean if used right.

Since those days I’ve helped managed a 100+ bed shelter for political refugees on Buffalo’s East Side. I’ve served on local and state-wide boards, and volunteered countless hours doing things from cleaning streets and windows in the Broadway-Fillmore District to serving as a volunteer firefighter. I love nonprofits and I always have.

I’ve also loved small business people. As a former Senior Branch Manager for M&T Bank, I’ve worked with many small businesses and I’ve always admired the risks owners take to achieve their dreams. I understand these risks are great. I really know this now that I have joined your ranks. Something I’m much prouder of than I ever was of being a banker.

My journey toward the Internet started nearly a decade ago when I started writing material for businesses’ websites after I left the bank. This includes everything from the snippets you see in the results when you Google something to blogs to actual web pages. It’s been a good learning experience but it has left me unfulfilled. I haven’t been working directly with the people I’ve always enjoyed being around and I’ve missed it.

So, after years of having an internal debate, I’ve decided to follow my heart and start my own business helping people I like.

I want you to know from the beginning, being successful over the Internet, especially for a small business or organization with limited means, takes time and a concerted effort. There’s no magic bullet – unless you have the money to pay for one. Otherwise, attracting new customers and supporters takes an holistic approach that utilizes the resources the Internet has to offer. It’s not necessarily a quick or easy road, but it’s definitely one worth traveling in order to attract support for what you do.

I hope we can sit down and talk about how to approach the Internet in a way that maximizes the benefits to your business or organization. It’s a deep subject. Contact me, I look forward to talking with you about it.
