Since I owned the business, I had subcontractors that I used to work on projects. While I was on running adventures, my business kept operating. Essentially, OnTrack Designs developed websites for law firms, banks, physicians, realtors, insurance companies, accountants, and other commercial businesses -- including e-commerce websites for online product sales. I would contract companies to utilize the services offered through OnTrack Designs, which included website development; search engine optimization; online marketing; website hosting; photo/video presentations; social media services; e-commerce platforms; online payment systems; and more.
In 2014, I decided to close the business and return to law work full time, which is what I now do to make a living. It was a wonderful experience owning my business for 16 years and gave me the opportunity to be flexible with my time in order to attend my four children's school and sporting events, as well as promote youth health and fitness globally through my running endeavors.
The days of needing a "website developer" are quickly fading. Today, there are tons of options for creating your own website, many of which are free. However, when I launched my business back in 1998, you could only get a website from someone who knew how to create the behind-the-scenes code needed to make the text, images and functionality work. I taught myself the needed coding and created a successful 16-year business from that knowledge.
