How it all begins
During my first few jobs out of college, I was exposed to sales, marketing, and software development tasks I performed personally. This combination allowed me to see that the Internet was going to be a game-changer for companies. In 1997, I saw that the Internet was largely misunderstood for its potential, companies were giving projects to programmers instead of marketing professionals. I researched and provided the findings to my employer at the time, but they didn’t agree with the opportunity I saw. I began considering starting my own business centered around building websites and taking advantage by approaching websites as part of company’s marketing assets, mainstream today but not in 1998.
After consulting with my wife, I started Cazarin Interactive in our basement in April of 1998.
