My name is
Laurie Mollin. I
chose the name
because it was the first accounting computer. And at the time I was
primarily installing and training computerized accounting systems.
Then my clients started asking me for help on Word-processing and
spreadsheets. This evolved into programming and database design.
Then came desktop publishing.
I had my own
consulting business in Connecticut called CT Software, Inc. doing all of this
until we moved to Callaway, Virginia near Roanoke. I went to work for Entré Computer Center where I ended up teaching all their classes and
supporting accounting systems as well as creating
custom databases. I
taught Computer Art at Ferrum College where I learned a great deal of what I
use now in creating logos and optimizing digital photographs.
Meanwhile my husband,
Harry Mollin and I raised a herd of about forty llamas in Callaway, Virginia. I
created my first website
to promote our llamas. Then my accounting and consulting clients
starting asking me to help me with their websites. And I helped a few of my fellow llama breeders with their
websites and then gave a few talks on using websites to promote llamas.
From that I started getting requests to help with llama web sites.
That evolved into helping them with their other business's websites. Then I
decided to take the show on the road so to speak, hence this website.
All in all I have been working
with computers for more than thirty years. And have learned the value of
keeping it simple. This is so true of good websites. I am a
teacher at heart and still enjoy helping people create and update their own
sites. But I have found that most people have their own work to do and
do not have time to keep up with their websites the way they would like.
So I decided to offer this service for the websites I design or redesign.
Every business should have a
is almost more important these days than a business card or brochure.
It is certainly the least expensive form of advertising. And it is
easy. Many of the websites I have created started with nothing more
than a piece of stationary with the company's logo and a few pictures.
A web presence can mean
more business. It can cut down on informational calls like requests
for directions or a schedule of classes. We have sold llamas to people
literally around the corner who found us on the web. Let me help you
get out on the web or improve what you've already got out there.
