John Cole Founder, Mysql, Php developer.


My favorite recent reads: The Lean Startup: How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses by Eric Ries. Third edition published by Crown Business Group, 2014; and The Four Steps to the Epiphany: Successful Strategies for a Product to Win by Steve Blank. Second edition, 2013


I passionately believe in economic diversity with empowered individuals.


Three years of planning and meeting groups of folks trying to express the idea, convinced me to get the idea off the napkin and into development. In October 2015, I began to bootstrap the site. In doing so, I found ways to better express the idea.

This project is huge and frankly, I had no idea what I was getting into when I started. I am like a gila monster stuck on an old cowboy boot. I don't give up. Now that the site is live and has gone through months of discovery and testing, I am very proud of what two-years of dedication has brought. Here is a tool members can use. A tool where local and global fans can earn through sharing in a social setting. The result is a win-win for musicians and fans.

A brief bio: New Mexico Military Institute, 1971; Rhode Island School of Design, 1979; The Johns Hopkins University Press, 1986; freelanced marketing for The Smithsonian Institute Press, The University of New Mexico Press and Museum of New Mexico Press; publication graphic designer for lots of magazines; then lastly, publisher of Santa Fe oneHeart magazine.


I am thankful for the folks who have helped me while plowing through some tough coding; including friends who shared their ears when I was stumbling around trying to communicate the idea. Thanks for all the insights provided by Ajay Chitta, and others involved with Code4 MeetUp at the Santa Fe Business Incubator; including Sean Oshea who sets the meetings. Lastly and most importantly, thanks to my loving wife Karen, who for months has shown unsurmountable support as I traversed through the development of my dream ... Muezbiz.




Malachy O'Connell Developer at large.


Malachy has volunteered time to occasionally give this older guy some much needed help. I met Malachy at a Santa Fe Incubator start up event in 2013. We continue to meet at the Code4 Meetups.


Malachy is a full stack developer with a background in Ruby.




Looking for skilled people

Traction is happening. New members are starting to see the advantages the site offers. How we expand will depend on developing a dynamic team. Being older, I truly value youthful energy and commitment to ideas. How ideas fit into place is what I will see as more individuals approach the Muezbiz model.


The nitch nature of Muezbiz is simply a cusp of possibility. The world is full of verticle markets.
