Michelle Dettlaff of Design 4 Dot Com
Design 4 Dot Com, Inc. was established in Orlando in 2001 as a custom web design and online marketing business focusing on delivering high-quality website solutions and service to businesses locally and nationwide. I wish I could say that Ihad a vision to build awesome, incredible websites and tap into that “Entrepreneurial Spirit”, but instead, it was due to the fact that I had been laid off (once again). After earning my Bachelors in Marketing, I went to work for 3 companies within 4 years and each time, the company either sold and didn’t keep any staff members or went out of business. All I wanted was a job where I could build my skills but, instead, I had trouble finding a reliable employer. So I became my own employer. Breathe!!!!
On May 31, 2001, I opened Design 4 Dot Com, Inc. I had ZERO experience owning a business, but I had DETERMINATION (okay, maybe mixed with a bit of stubbornness to never give up.) Within a few months, I had a dozen or so clients and have never looked back. Yes, that was 20 years ago.
When Michelle isn’t working, you can find her on the back roads on her bike. (ya think?) Her dream is to ride her motorcycle from Key West to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. We drove to Mile Marker 0 in 2016 and we are heading to Alaska in 2023.
