GirlGeek of the Week
May 2000

Cyndi Webb

Cyndi Webb

Cyndi, like many a geek, toiled away at the DOS prompt many years ago, working with programs with ASCII layouts "customized" for her former company. Then, along came the Internet and her whole outlook changed. It was late in the game--fall of 1997--but she jumped right in and caught up quickly, learning HTML and creating her own Web sites.

Empowered by her newfound skills, Cyndi created Mom's Network, an online destination for work-at-home moms. She would later sharpen her own Web developer skills, utilizing server-side scripting to create rich content. Today she runs her company, encompassing Mom's Network, Web design and development, and graphics creation.

How do you earn a living?

I own a web design business (although I haven't had time to take on new clients for quite some time due to the time and energy put into Mom's Network) and also design logos and graphics. I am also involved in a number of online affiliate programs which have been very beneficial along with a variety of business ventures both on and offline.

When did you first discover your love and/or obsession with computers and technology?

This wasn't until the last 6 years or so. It was energizing to have greater and greater capabilities. I felt empowered in exploring this new potential and shed the need for dependence on more knowledgeable people. I'd rather learn on my own than to wait for someone to show me. It has been the best way for me to learn.

Do you consider yourself a Geek?

Hmmm..... only if we can add the word "fun loving" in front of it!

What is your favorite Website?

Of course, I have to say - Mom's Network

What do you do when you are not working?

Although I have found that working for myself has almost doubled my working hours and cut down on much of my sleep, I do still make plenty of time to spend with my family and friends. Being a work-at-home mom gives me the flexibility to come and go as I please and makes it much easier to meet friends for lunch/dinner. It also allows me to spend the days with my son and we love to take long walks to the park, play outside and just "hang out" with each other. I am also active in our church. I sing with our worship team and am involved with my sons school and other community activities.
