Mike Glanz

Mike Glanz - HireAHelper Owner CEO
I’m a Southern California born tech geek and entrepreneur, I started this site as a way to share a wealth of information I’ve accumulated during my career as both a web developer and internet entrepreneur.

Software Development Background

I spent 4 years developing ASP.net web application with one of the best custom shops in SoCal, Lewis Technology. I worked on primarily internal projects interlaced with larger eCommerce clients such as ConcreteNetwork.com and PlumberSurplus.com.

My Ventures

www.YouGotComments.com was started as my first attempt to make billion using the WWW. Its a full featured software application that allows for users to check their MySpace.com messages from their desktop without the hassle of actually logging in to the site. The site was very successful for a while, however it became economically un-feasable to continue maintaining it with the development and success of my second venture. The domain and software are currently for sale, they might be of use to companies hoping to advertise to the MySpace generation, who have a little money to invest in future development and advertising.

www.HireAHelper.com is my attempt to revolutionize the eCommerce industry by introducing services as a valid commodity worth trading online. The site allows for homeowners to search for local day laborers in their area and hire them with a convenient web interface. It is a cheap and effective alternative to expensive day labor companies or hiring professionals.
