In 1981, Zane moved to Bridger Valley, Wyoming. At only 21 years of age, he opened his first auto parts store. In 1984, he opened a second store in Evanston. Zane was in the parts business while raising a family for 14 years. In 1988 the two stores grossed $1.1M in sales.
In January of 2000, Zane opened his own web design agency and became a web technologist for an oil analysis company. Zane is a self-taught entrepreneur. He also attended Western Wyoming College for small business management. He still continues to read, study, learn and apply his knowledge each and every day, always seeking to find new and more innovative ways to bring higher value and efficiency.
Today, Zane’s passion is all about getting back to his business roots. Which for him is in the offline world of traditional bricks and mortar or service businesses. He strongly believes that innovation drives revenue for traditional businesses by using a ‘hybrid approach’. This equates to leveraging a mix of online automations into offline business… and this is the new opportunity for these companies to continue to grow, succeed and thrive in their communities.
