~ Mary Oliver
Mary Beth (owner of Out of Nowhere) and Tom (owner of GMAN Websites) attended highschool together and somehow, over three decades later, they ended up in the same profrofession – website design. In 2020, after Mary Beth’s husband and business partner retired, Tom stepped in to help when needed.
COMPETITORS JOIN FORCES
In a dog-eat-dog world, Mary Beth and Tom decided to turn it on it’s head. They thought it was better (for both their clients and their companies) to create a “dog-helps-dog” world. In November of 2021, they came up with a plan. Mary Beth would focus on her Managed WordPress Hosting, having Tom take over the website design aspect of her business. Tom would focus on his Website Design business and host his clients with Mary Beth. Everyone wins!
