Hey guys!

I'm somewhat new here due to the fact that the folks over at WebHostingTalk are very rude and obnoxious as far as Mods and Administrators go.

Anyway, I'm here to share a new idea as far as a hosting company goes.

Well, to start off, I'm 15 years old. Not many people are very comfortable with a 15 year old running a business. Trust me though, I am capable. Recently, I was planning on buying either a reseller cPanel account or a VPS and running everything on my own. However, I am missing one thing. A team that can stick by my side all the time and that's what I'm at hosting discussion for.

Now please, if your not comfortable with a 15 year old staff member/CEO, don't even bother. However, I am looking to fill these positions:
  • Co-Founder
  • Sales Representatives (Commission Based)
  • Support Technicians (Paid Based on Customer Resolutions)

Now to be honest, I was thinking of a few ways to pay. One would be either for every sale it gets split amongst the ENTIRE crew. I find this better as it gives everyone an equal share. Or we can do it as the way I listed above in that list.

I'm planning on calling the site HostxTreem as you can tell by my name. I think it'll be a fun and well thought out project that we can possibly make big.

If you'd like, please do not hesitate to post in this thread or email me at me@davidvazquez.me

Thank you so much and I would appreciate any words you have to say,
David Vazquez
Soon To Be HostxTreem Founder

Good to see an ambitious teenager! Most 15 year olds aren't thinking about starting business. Instead, they are too busy trying to convince their parents to buy them a brand new car.

Good luck!

David, welcome to HostingDiscussion.com.

I think your proposal is a bit misleading. Are you looking to start your own company are you looking to work for someone else? I am just a bit confused by "Sales Representative (Commission Based)" position. As a company owner, you are not working on a commission, rather keep all the profits.

Yeah. I agree I worded that wrong.

1. Sorry for posting this in the wrong forum.
2. And no its not all for me. I'm just looking for a good team to actually work with and make this whole idea come to life.

I thought this thread was about http://www.NewIdeaHosting.com/

Anyways, no offense, but 15 is a lil' bit too young for my taste. I think you should be enjoying your childhood right now and trying to finish school.

I do thinks it's great that you're already making future plans to run your own business and ventures, though. However, take care of that brain of yours first and finish growing up (because once it's gone, it's gone!).

You'll have plenty of time to do whatever you want after that.

Welcome to the forum and good luck!

Hah, yeah but the thing is, this is my passion. It's essentially what I want to do in life and hey, why not start now? Anyway, age is just a number. Doesn't mean ANYONE is incapable of going for their goals (regardless if it's a head start )

Best regards,
David Vazquez

Hi David,

You misunderstood me, I never said you are incapable of doing what you want to do. I'm just saying there will be plenty of time for it, since you're just 15.

By all means, set your goals and go for them, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Well regardless, HostLeet, you are one of the very few people to actually show support for me in this type of project. People normally throw me to the side when they find out I'm that age and immediately I'm labeled as a scammer/wannabe entrepreneur who can't do anything with his life because he barely has "experience".

Computers and whatnot has been my passion since I was 5 and I envy those with a successful hosting company like you . But that's besides the fact. I find it fun getting those tickets and answering them and seeing the word "Thanks". It just pleases me for some reason.

To me it's not because of the money (given the fact that I work at other hosting companies for free) but it's rather because of the fact that I can go on to a good college with the words "Hosting Company Founder/CEO". Possibly even work at home and be competing with SingleHop . Ehh, may be a little bit far-fetched, but hey it's good to dream right?

Anyway, thanks for the kind words. Hope we can keep in touch on the forums.

Best regards,
David Vazquez

I can't help you with sales, as that would take away from my own sales but if you need help with support, just let me know.

You don't need other people all the time, it's possible to start a company on your own. I did, although I've grown a little since then, bit it's definitely possible to start.

Hi David,

That's a great attitude and I wish you the best in your ventures (you're in the right track for sure). And remember, the sky is the limit, but you can touch the moon if you try.

Also, I try to visit HD forums every single day, so we'll definately keep in touch if you're in here.

Thanks Steve. I like it way better here than at WebHostingTalk. They're community of Mods and Administrators are terrible and so far, just about everyone here welcomed me.
