Veteran Owned Business Entrepreneurship


10% of all profits from Fawkes Digital Marketing fund our shelter projects to help men, women, and families with homelessness, food, healthcare, and more.

John's Companies & Community Projects

John is an entrepreneur at heart. You will often see him talking to people at coffee shops or at craft breweries. Sometimes talking business, and sometimes just chit-chatting. Almost always, chicken wings in his belly (traditional - not chicken nuggets!). As he talks with friends, acquaintances, and complete strangers, he will get ideas that will blossom into something amazing.

Custom print-on-demand t-shirts, hoodies, and other swag. We had a need for this for ourselves and for clients and rather than creating, and charging, for multiple sites we created a central repository to save everyone.

Your One Page (Y1P)

Started in August 2015. Shelved due to no demand. Asked for what this project offered yet never realized. Re-igniting it and going to embrace my vision for it. Free single-page websites for all. Of course, there will be options for no advertisements but otherwise free.


Y1P URL Shortener

As part of the 2023 refresh of Your One Page (Y1P) we are going to incorporate a URL shortener. This will be available for all whether you're using Y1P or not.
