A little info
about Steve :
full name being Steven Matthew Jurczyk
) -- began his
business career back in 1980's when he first opened the
doors to his retail /wholesale company which sold
barber equipment and supplies . The first
few years were tough -- he had to borrow from
Peter , to pay Paul -- many times going weeks
without drawing any payroll for himself .
Once a steady
customer base was established and a dependable
cash flow was in place -- he began to expand the
barber supply business to include beauty salon ,
nail and spa products which was starting to explode in the
mid 1980's .
As most small
business owners know , there is never enough extra
money to pay for much advertising ,etc. -- so
Steve began his own advertising/marketing plan .
Having taken up
with the many new computers just coming on the market
, he taught himself the
computer language necessary to write custom
programs to use several computers for cash
registers , inventory control , invoicing ,
mailing lists , and the printing of price catalogs
and brochures . He also expanded his Graphic
Design skills to create some masterful
The business was
expanding enough to employ 12 people to work the
retail division and wholesale warehouse
departments . By 1987 there were two retail stores
and a larger warehouse building to accommodate the
Growth of the
business continued into the 90's and Steve
continued to gain more knowledge of advertising
and marketing with his longtime friendship of
Robert Coco , one of the founders of the VAL-PAK
Coupon empire .
But the long 12
hour days started to take its toll and didn't
provide much extra time for Steve to enjoy his
love of CARS -- having owned many cars such as a
Alpha Romeo , Triumph ,VW's , Porsches and his
passion for Corvettes . So when the
year 2001 came along with many new government
regulations and various other headaches , the
decision was made to close the supply business and
pursue a new career path .
It was in 2001
that his new business was formed -- CREATIVE
MARKETING SOLUTIONS -- providing
advertising , marketing , and web design services
. By 2008 the new business had expanded its services to include radio and
cable TV advertising .
In 2009 some unexpected
tragedies had occurred in Steve's life with the
sudden deaths of both his mother and sister .
It was then that Steve decided that life was too
short to complicate his life with any more work
responsibilities and decided to make a move .
And move he did - to the town of Cherryville , NC
- away from the hustle and bustle of the larger
cities - back to his small-town roots .
And thus the
creation of BLACKROCK WEB CREATIONS -- serving
the small, independent business community .
