He started just like you.

This is the story of an entrepreneur who saw a gap in the market and knew there was a better way.

Flashback: 1999 – Imagine a time before everyone had a computer in their pocket. That was 15-year-old Michael Tasner’s reality, the CEO of No Joke Marketing. Back then, building websites was a niche skill, and a decent computer cost a fortune.

Building from the Ground Up – Michael saw an opportunity. He knew he could help people build websites, but he needed a computer. Undeterred, he used the public library daily to hone his skills.

A Head Start in a New Market – With few competitors around, Michael seized his advantage. He launched his web design business, securing his first client with his parent’s tax lady.

Learning the Business – Michael grasped the concept of supply and demand quickly, taking every chance to make money and learn marketing.

College and Beyond – He funded his college education at Bradley University (Marketing and Entrepreneurship) with his web design business (MST Designs). A branding course inspired him to rebrand to Taz Solutions.

Taz Solutions Takes Off – As Michael’s skills grew, so did Taz Solutions. He collaborated with industry leaders, soaking up knowledge. This knowledge culminated in his best-selling book, “Marketing In The Moment.” Here, he coined the term “Web 3.0 Marketing” and predicted future trends.

Building a Reputation – The book’s success propelled Michael into the marketing spotlight. He even met the legendary Jay Levinson, author of “Guerilla Marketing.” This powerhouse duo led to Michael becoming a Guerilla Marketing Master Trainer, CMO of Guerilla Marketing International, and founder of Guerilla Marketing Training & Coaching.

Fast Forward 18 Years – After selling his million-dollar business (Taz Solutions), Michael started a new chapter. He envisioned a company built on the core values we shared above. Today that vision is a reality and keeps on evolving day by day.
