Hi my Name is 
Jamison Haponenko,
my wife Rachel and I would like to share with you our story of why we are giving away all of My Trade Secrets 
A year and half after we got married, Rachel and I decided to start a Full Service Glass Shop

At the time I was just going to turn twenty three years old, you see I had been working at a full service Glass Shop every summer since I was 13, then started working full time right out of High school 

When I turned eighteen I moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado and started working for Harding Glass and within a few months they gave me my own truck and gave me a title of outside glazier installer.

At age twenty I moved to Phoenix, Arizona and worked for American Glass for just over a year. Then in 1997 I decided to move back to Alamosa. By now I at the point where I was tired of working for other people and thought I knew just enough about the glass industry to start doing my own thing  

Although starting our own thing was a bit scary. Our big motivation was we would be able to work together and at the same time be able to bring our 6 month old daughter Jayda (and soon our other daughter Megan) to work with us, giving us more time together as a family
So in May of 1999 
we started our glass shop 
located in a small town in southern Colorado called Alamosa

We named our new business.... 
"One Stop Glass"
It was a full service glass shop doing everything from Residential home windows, Commercial business storefronts, and Automotive glass

Here is a picture of my daughter Jayda
And I outside of the building we were renting just a few day after we opened
for business 
Necessity Is The Mother
Of All Invention
After being in business a few years I started to notice that business would consistently get slow right around the months of August and September. That seemed to be always the worst time of year for our business cash flow. 

During those months I remember feeling completely stressed out and overwhelmed because it was a challenge to pay our employees, rent, taxes and vendors.
I can remember several time that we were unable to take home a check ourselves. 

Challenges like these drove me to push harder to find a way to increase our 
Cash Flow.

I was always looking for ways to not only keep our guys busy, but at the same time looking for new different innovative ways to offer my customers new products.
Here are some pictures
of a custom mirror and shower doors that we designed 
to display in our showroom at our new location in Alamosa
I remember one day I had just finished tying down a load of 4x8 sheets of quarter inch acrylic I had just purchased from A&C plastics in Colorado Springs Colorado

I went back into the front office to sign the final invoice, I remember glancing over at a small will call area and saw leaning up against a rack a 2' x 3' piece of half-inch glass... I thought "well that’s odd" 

So I asked the store manager... 

"Hey when did you guys start selling glass" as I pointed to the piece
He said "What?" With a strange look on his face 
"What... that?" he said pointing to the piece I was looking at... "That’s not glass" he said "That’s a piece of what is called #3030 Glass Green Acrylic, we had a customer return it, and it doesn’t have any of the protective paper on it. It's crazy how much it really does look like glass isn't it" he said

I was totally Blown Away. I thought to myself there’s No Way that’s acrylic, so I walked over and picked it up. Sure enough I could tell the second I picked it up that it was acrylic but it looked identical to a piece of half-inch glass

Long story short I bought a sheet that very day. Over the next few years I start to use it in different places and realized that it held up very well. 
Here is a picture of one of the first pieces I made from Acrylic.
 
This vanity sink with a stainless steel bowl was installed in our customer bathroom with access from our showroom

Isn't it great how this looks 
exactly like glass

Also this type of acrylic has a much harder surface making it more resistant to scratches
It Was A Big Hit
Over the next several years I started getting customers requesting that we use the glass green colored acrylic on many different projects from their homes to commercial projects
Our customers absolutely loved the glass green acrylic because they could get the glass look without the expense and the long wait times, and this type of acrylic is more resistant to scratches. 

There was also many reasons we liked using it as well...

1. You didn’t have to have a high paid glazier do every project
2. It isn't as fragile
3. Its easier to cut 
4. Its harder to crack 
5. Its very easy to modify if a piece doesn’t fit quite right in the field

Not to mention that it passes building codes making it possible to use it in places where you would have to normally use safety glass. Places like stairwells, wall panels that go to the floor, dividers for offices and/or restaurants, showers and much much more.
The Trip That Changed Everything
A few years later I took a trip to Las Angeles California with my project manager to attend AIA Show A.k.a. American Institute of Architects show. If you’ve never been to one I highly recommend checking it out. They’ve got everything you could imagine when it comes to building products and state of the art products. 

We came across a booth where this company had a product in which they were carving regular annealed (non-safety) glass, it was interesting because it looked like slumped glass however they said they didn’t use a kiln in the fabrication process. 

I thought "that’s interesting"... I remember thinking to myself "I wonder if I could do something like that to the Glass Green Acrylic product we were using on all these projects back home?"

Over the next 6 months using every spare scrap of acrylic we had in the shop I ran experiment after experiment after experiment. One day I finally came up with an exact process. This process allowed us to carve and sculpt the surface of the acrylic and then very quickly polish the surface. This was so crazy cool and opened up a whole new bunch of options and products that we could offer our customers.

As it turned out our customers loved it! We started doing even more projects not only home owners but for restaurants, office buildings even one customer had us travel to Scottsdale Arizona to do a number of acrylic design products in her high end Spa.
Here are two pictures from one of our projects in Arizona
"Body Therapy & Hair Spa"

The Big Crash 
Everything was going great until the markets crashed in of June of 2008 and the US Economy went into a recession. 

Our company took some big losses. At the time we were in the middle of several large commercial glazing projects. Several of the contractors we were working for started to hold up our payment draws. They started use just about any reason they could find to not have to pay us each month, or in some cases for several months.

 They would do whatever they could to sit on the money they had as long as possible. It was a struggle even getting our 10% retainage money once the projects were completed. We even had one contractor that filed bankruptcy at the end of the project and we lost over $100,000 from that one contract alone. 

During this time I had started educating myself on how to market our company on the Internet. I figured that was the way the future was going. I started learning different sales and marketing techniques that were mine blowing. I figured this would take our company to the next level and pull us out of the debt we were starting to accumulate because of the recession.

We made it all the way to the summer of 2010 and I thought we would just be able to pull out of it. At the time I applied for a loan for a loan to consolidate our debt that would result in reducing our monthly expenses by 26%. However at this time the banks were still tight and very strict on who they would let borrow money. The local bank I was working with said they would finance a portion of our reconsolidation loan and then team up with the SBA "Small Business Administration" to finance the rest of the loan amount.

Everything at our local bank was approved quickly. Then it was a waiting game for the final approval through the SBA this process took several months. 

Finally I remember the exact day, I had just finished up having lunch with a new project manager we were going to hire. He had just flown in the day before from California. I remember clearly I was on my way back to the office when I received a call from my wife saying that the SBA office in California denied their portion of the loan. 

At this point our cash flow was so tight that I can still remember the feeling of the pressure and how desperate I felt. Money was so tight that I was going to the post office at 6 AM every morning to check with our mail lady to see if she could give me the mail early so I didn’t have to wait for her to deliver it to our shop several hours later that afternoon.

In May 2010 after much work and implementing new sales and marketing techniques. We found ourself with $1.8 million in signed contracts for commercial projects. Some of the projects we had already started shop drawings on. The big problem was we had no capital in which to do them.
Below are a few pictures of some of the projects we were in the middle of doing
At the same time we had just signed $1.8 million in new contracts we were starting
By this time I had learned so much about marketing online my wife and I decided to close our 11-year-old glass business and start doing online affiliate marketing.

Although at first it was very challenging to completely change careers. It has also been a blessing helping us to reach our goals of spending more time together as a family.
It Was Time To Share 
My Highly Guarded Trade Secrets
After we closed our shop I still had many people that would contact me asking if I could still do acrylic projects for them. I always felt bad having to turn them down saying I completely got out of glass industry.

However after some time of selling affiliate products I thought "you know with all these people contacting me to do acrylic project, it might be a good idea if I put a training course together to show people like me, like yourself how to work with acrylic." It was time to share my trade secrets... something I would’ve never considered doing while running my glass shop.

Today I believe this is a great way for my legacy in the glass and acrylic industry to live on.

With that said I would like to offer you the chance to get all my trade secrets. Many years of trial and error to perfect. Saving you not only time and money but also frustration.
