FACE TO FACE WITH A COMPUTER WHIZKID&CEO
Interviewer: How many hours do you spend on the Internet everyday?
Caesar Peries: I spend about 1 to 3 hours on school day working and probably about half an hour just 1)surfing. And on a weekend, I would spend about 2-10 hours working and about two hours surfing or so.
Interviewer: Wow! You know a lot of things. They spend more hours on the Internet than you do!
Caesar: I try to limit my time. I don't want to get 2)addicted to the Internet.
Interviewer: Try not to be too addicted?
Caesar: Oh. It can get to a point where it is too much and actually in the United States it is considered an addiction. I do all of the work.
Interviewer: You do all the design work?
Caesar: Yes, the design, the programming. My father handles the marketing. He markets the company very well actually. And if you go to any major search engine such as Yahoo or Excite, and type in web designing company or an Animation or Macromedia Flash, we will come in the top 10 with his marketing.
Interviewer: And do you know those marketing things?
Caesar: He's teaching me. He is training me for when I'm older actually, so I don't have to be reliant on anybody.
Interviewer: What would you do if people don't treat you as a grown up? If they don't take you seriously, what would you do?
Caesar: I simply let them go. You can't do business with someone who doesn't take you seriously. However, once we got me some smaller clients which is in their medium size clients and larger clients, that's a kind of credibility. And when you have that credibility, the people really take you seriously because there is something to show for that. That would pretty much be it and of course there hate, you get some mail like emails and things like that, from some just average people that they say, you're going to fail, stop taking money from adults who need it, so on and so forth. We just try and ignore them.
Interviewer: Do you like people call you genius?
Caesar: Uh, since I don't like it, I don't like it but I don't hate it either. So that's true. It's OK.
Interviewer: It's just a term.
Caesar: Yeah, it's just a term.
Interviewer: But do you care how people look at you?
Caesar: No, no not really. If you care too much about what people think of you or look at you. I don't think you can live a joyful life.
Interviewer: Then have you ever thought of doing business with China?
Caesar: Of course, that's the main reason we're here. To hopefully make some 3)bids and do business in China, and make some long term relationships with us and Chinese businesses that look to grow bigger, cause currently China, as I mentioned, is not developed to its fullest potential, and some of the smaller companies will grow. And we want to be part of that
