In 2017, Olympian/Seattleite Doug Montgomery returned to Powell after what he calls a 13-year vacation to Poland.
During his 13yrs of teaching ESL he started several small businesses and organized special fundraising events for families with special needs, it became a necessity for Doug to learn to his way around the internet and how to represent his businesses and events.
Wyohost is the culmination of 15+yrs of learning website development, Facebook marketing, Social Media and literally 10’s of 1000’s of hours of self education via YouTube and several online course to hone his crafts.
Coming to Powell was by way of his best friend from HS who told him, “Don’t go back to Seattle, it’s turned to hell. Come to Powell, the area can use some tech experience.” So he came.
In 2017 he arrived, took a year and “played” organizing the 1st annual Last Splash of Summer, a Powell Kids Day event coming up on it’s 4th year.
The goal has always been to be able to go into a business with an attempt to help them solve their specific issues and problems.
Find their need and come up with a solution try to help fulfill their needs. Life as a whole should be, “Find a need and service that need, only then will you have success. Any other way of doing business is self-centered.”
