The son of a Marine and a teacher. I grew up in Southern California with a pretty normal life. I discovered computers in elementary school and I loved them. I remember the first time I went on Yahoo – I knew then that I wanted to pursue a career in computers.
I graduated from the very distinguished Temescal Canyon High School in 2006 and it was a big accomplishment for me. I began working at McDonald’s soon after graduation and worked my way up to manager. I worked full-time, then came home and worked on several of my websites trying to make some extra cash. I did quite well and became a performance marketer, affiliate marketer, and entrepreneur.
In June 2006, I started Throlson LLC and operated it through Nov. 2012, but life really began to look up when I started thinking about my education. I returned to school in 2009, majoring in Computer Information Systems. Money is great, but education is the key to success. I’m currently pursuing my Doctorate in Computer Info Systems.
From Nov. 2010 to April 2013, I was an educational assistant at Norco College, incorporating technology into all aspects of the curriculum and guiding students through coursework. I became an IT Specialist at Allegra Marketing-Print-Mail in Corona, CA in May 2013 to July 2016 I designed and developed web pages and applications, graphics, multimedia and Social Media Management while at Allegra Corona.
In Aug. 2013, I joined Toastmasters International, an amazing organization that helps people build public speaking and leadership skills. Successfully running as Area Governor in 2014- 2015 for Area E1 District 12 Toastmasters leading up to being Division Director for 2015-2016 leading the Division E to presidents Distinguished working with a team and providing leadership for over 20 local Toastmaster clubs.
My blog, NickThrolson.com, lets me express myself and help others grow and expand their business. Learning from others is key. I can’t emphasize that enough. That’s why I made my blog a place for working together as a group and as friends. I hope you enjoy it and come back soon.
