Computer Price Club

In 1990 I had this idea to leverage my programming talents and get into the catalog computer products sales game. I had contacts with a number wholesale computer product suppliers. These firms started supplying their product lists in electronic form via text files. I was able to combine this files into a single database and generate a paper based catalog that we handed out at computer shows.

The sales from this new venture were very minimal but the learning experience from the effort was indispensible. The task of combining multiple different data sources into a single consolidated data set provided a great experience. Along with the paper based catalog I also developed a custom application that allowed the management and quick lookup of the consolidated data.

Computers In Action ceased operation in after a year and I decided to take a "REAL JOB" as my parents would call it. From here I went to work for "Fairmont Private School".
