    Smile Chris Resigns from ITorama - Last day today
    Hi Everyone,

    Well as everyone seems to be moving on I decided this month it was time for me to move on too, and today is my last day at ITorama.

    A question that may spring to everyones mind is "Who the heck is ITorama", to which the short answer is ITorama was the new name given to Web Studio-1 when we hired a new CEO back in 2005. I've worked here for just under 10 years on a wide range of projects and as the GM from 2000 to 2004, and now it's time to move on.

    The next question you probably have is , "and where the heck does that leave AMWSO, all your clients and your staff", well, very much with very little change, as they will fall under my total management

    So Chris, what has changed... hmmm.... nothing I guess other than I don't get a salary from ITorama any more

    Cheers

    Chris

    Well, giving up the salary is OK - you're house is paid off and now you can relax a little. This is healthy. COngratulations on a life change.

    As long as you stay with AMSWO, all's good.
    Peace,

    As I was reading this, I first thought "WTH, Chris is leaving us?", then read on and felt better. It's not nice to lead your "fans" on like this Enjoy the extra time. Kids grow up so fast and before you know it they will be graduating school.

    Congrats on the change Chris, sounds liek it's a good one.

    And yes, kids do grow up too fast. We're taking our 16 year-old out for his birthday tonight. I broke down and we finally got him a cell phone, since he was the LAST kid in school without one. Who hasn't heard that line!

    So AMWSO has nothing to do with this ITorama place? What's with the initials, then?

    Or are you going to start calling it Chris Consulting or something like that?

    Cheers Andy! Just send me the pricing

    You can look at it as : AMWSO was a division of ITorama, and AMWSO has now split off to become it's own company. And now rather than there being a CEO and MD above me, there's now.. my wife

    Cheers

    Congrats, Chris!

    BTW, when I first saw the site I kept trying to figure out what the AMWSO stood for, thinking it was an acronym for something. Until I knew better, the best guess I could come up with was that it stood for "affiliate marketing world service organization" - which actually comes pretty close to describing what's done, both for merchants and affiliate marketers world-wide.

    Hi WW,

    Heck since the name change to ITorama in 2005 I have been banging my head about what to change the WSO bit to mean, "Affiliate Marketing World Services Organization" , nice hope you didn't trademark that already

    Nope, but there's a bit more behind it - and if it's of any interest, for a few reasons it might not be a bad idea to nuke these public posts referring to it and keep it to private conversation with relevant concerned parties for the sake of protecting privacy.

    Bet I'm the only one with the wrong mental picture

    As long as you don't buy a tie, I'm fine with it

    Nope, but I imagine that due to the timing you're not alone in thinking it was

    Glad to hear you got control of the helm. I was worried that you were over with
    Linda Buquet as I saw you listed on her site.

    Not sure what there is to be worried about, we'll take everyone's programs and run them for them if they like

    Congrats. It is good to be your own boss - in terms of work at least
    Plus your kids would be very happy to have both parents around them. A rare luxury these days.
