About J.D.

I'm looking for talent in the following areas: Marketing, Sales, Web and Mobile App Development, and Graphic Design. I have an IT management background, and would bring Project Management expertise as well as some Accounting/Finance skill.

My idea is WeddingSked, an online service for individuals planning weddings. It allows for quick and easy scheduling of vendors to perform wedding related services. By providing only an email address and a nominal reservation fee, customers can secure commitments from wedding vendors such as bridal shops, venues, musicians, caterers, photographers, florists, bakeries (cakes), DJ’s, transportation firms, etc. Vendors in the WeddingSked network automatically make a commitment to serve customers on the scheduled wedding date.

There are 2.3 million marriages each year in the United States. Serving just 5% of those marriages presents a $5.8M revenue opportunity for the WeddingSked service. There are two components to the service, the vendor network and the technology solution. I have a business plan that outlines the vision for this service. It includes a five-year operational plan (including cost estimates and revenue targets), a market analysis, and an aggressive timeline to expand the vendor network.
