I’ll Show You How to Start & Build a Successful Web-Hosting Business
My name is Ian Franzen and I live in New York City. Here’s a photo of me and my dog. I run a successful web-hosting business called College Web Pro that I started myself, from scratch, with no formal technical training.
I was a Philosophy major (Hampshire College, 2008) who graduated into the great recession and had no idea what to do after I finished school. After working at a convenience store, then for the FAA, I started my business out of necessity when I realized that I didn’t ever want to work for anyone else.
I knew that I needed a steady, reliable income, something I could do remotely, and something where I could work for myself. I’m a bit of a communist and didn’t like the idea that I’d spending my day working hard for someone else so they earn a profit from my labor. I fell into web-hosting by accident.
