OIVS, Online Instructional Videos, Inc.

Online Instruction videos was a start up that I created after the dot com bust. It was an idea that I had been working on for awhile, once Zip|Send finally closed shop I immediately focused my efforts into this idea. Long story short we didn't have enough seed money to keep it going which is really unfortunate because it proved to be a very prosperous business for our competitor Lynda.com Good news is that I have become really good friends with Lynda and I was able to share many of the ideas that I had for oivs. Lynda once told me "great minds think alike", I couldn't have said it better.
