JP Stonestreet After graduating from The University of Kansas, he taught himself how to program in order to automate his tedious corporate job. That’s when he got his start in software. For nearly 20 years, he’s been a serial Internet entrepreneur and web consultant. He’s built dozens of websites for large and small companies, in addition to several of his own. In 2003, he founded PromoteWare, which was a modular web development platform used to build client websites. In 2005, he founded QuoteCatcher.com, which was a business-to-business lead generation company. In 2008, he sold both websites to a company located a few miles from Silicon Valley. Now, he writes an entrepreneurial and online business blog at JPStonestreet.com, produces a Podcast called Smart Energized Entrepreneurs, teaches a web startup workshop called Web Startup 101, and speaks about online business and entrepreneurship whenever he has the chance.
