Avatar’s Wrestling School- A hobby of mine when I was in grade school, the first online communities I joined were wrestling forums. I became involved in Fantasy Wrestling, and began learning how to write HTML to expand on the website of a friend. I was approached by a colleague named Jerry Mings to handle web development for a fantasy wrestling school he had in mind. After designing the website, I began marketing the website through established networking channels (the Internet was a much different place in 1999). Within 2 months the AWS was ranked #1 on FWLnet.com’s top 1000 fantasy wrestling websites list, and the site became a household name in online wrestling communities. We were approached with hosting opportunities, and won several awards for both quality and popularity. This was my first major marketing success, and I always look back to what I accomplished as a child to remind myself what I should be capable of as an adult.
