I started with LaserBits on January 3, 2006. My job was to get LaserUniversity up and running. There had been two people in my position previously and LaserU was still not online. Talk about pressure! I was entirely new to the laser engraving industry, so I had to teach myself to laser engrave while creating LaserU to teach others how to laser engrave! I honestly thought my job would last about 6 months. I mean how much could there be to laser engraving? Well, the joke was on me. LaserU launched on April 15, 2006 - eight years ago - and I am still learning about this industry.
Mike, my boss and co-owner of LaserBits, was ahead of his time.....and he usually still is. He knew there was a large gap, in terms of education, in the laser engraving business. His vision of creating LaserUniversity was chided and rebuffed. I certainly am glad he rarely listens to naysayers. I love working on LaserU. My children have gone from infants to ages 7 and 9 on my engraved examples inside the lessons. They do not know life without laser engraving. "Hey, mommy, can you engrave my Kindle, my bat, dog tags for my friends, a frame for my teacher?"
Here's to the longest 6 month job I have ever had!
