My first “Adulting” PC
Sure, I had a Commodore VIC-20 when I was younger, but in 1991… I got a full-sized IBM XT. It was so cool. You would activate the start switch and hear the beeps and boops as you cycled the 5 1/4″ floppy holding the Operating System!

Hello Packard Bell
Home computing was picking up speed, and for just $5000.00 you could get a brand new Packard Bell. Why not?!?! It had 4MB of RAM! You could make custom logos and it would only take 2 hours to print the sample!

My first Freelance Jobs
I was so excited. A sandwich shoppe – called Ol’ Philly Towne – hired me to remake their menus. I was so confident, I added a plumber for print marketing the same month.

Computers Blend with Powersports
As an amateur motorcycle road racer, I found I could write articles to promote the sport, while participating in my own race classes. Vonconcepts was born.
January 3, 1998
Vonconcepts is Formalized
Having reserved the name Vonconcepts for any business endeavors, we found ourselves assisting multiple non-profits with publishing copy, web design and public relations. This phase went about 10 years and included projects like Racing2SaveLives, The Father Show, MRA (Motorcycle Roadrace Association), Cycle News, Sticky Rubber, and more.
May 1, 2007
With decades in the Automotive Service Industry, I decided to write and publish a book – Service Writing in Black and White. This was a game-changer of unforeseen magnitude.
New Office, Name, and Leads
In the heat of the economic turndown, we moved into an office at the South Valley Economic Development Center under the name Von Ahnen Design and PR. We began serving the new companies running through the center with site and social media launches.
While working with clients in the SVEDC, we changed our name again… Mañana No Mas! was born.
The great folks at uPublicTV had made us an offer after sharing a couple of projects. Since you could only stay at the SVEDC 2 years, it was time to graduate… and we moved to the new office — with the move we solidified the Mañana No Mas! name we adopted while at the SVEDC.
Ducati North America
Remember the book? Well, Ducati had bought a copy and reached out to ask if I could write a course. I had already been teaching a roadracing course at the track as well as teaching the Basic Riders Course for the MSF… so I agreed. Then it morphed into Ducati becoming our largest client ever.
This led to a 15 year Corporate Training run that included Technical and Sales training. Four of those years also included Publishing for Suzuki Motor of America.

Mañana No Mas! Re-launched
The Corporate positions had run their course, and COVID was right around the corner. I decided to re-launch Mañana No Mas! in an effort to add more value to more people.

Recent Work Portfolio
No matter what your thoughts on Vaccine Mandates, the thought that drove action was “What will all these people do?” Most vulnerable people negatively affected by the mandates are career people – not entrepreneurs. Self-employment is a new concept (scary at that) and we wanted to draft a community and resource to help. Visit Vaxpreneur
Capitalizing on the “Facebook Challenge” phenomenon, we developed a project to help others host online challenges away from Facebook. We provide a more organized activity structure, real user management, monetization options, and the ability to grow and manage your marketing list. Full Site here
Contract Corporate Training / Speaking
I have done this one twice and looking forward to more. AT&T and the County of Los Angeles have entertained me two separate election cycles. The first one was the 2020 Presidential Election, then we followed up on the 2021 Recall Election against Gov. Newsom. The task centers on adjusting curriculum and presenting to I.T. workers supporting the election stations. One direct bonus was continuing to use in-person training skills during the COVID era.
Podcast Guest / Speaker
Working with Nancee Johnson on this episode was a blast. It was a fantastic opportunity to spread the word on Mañana No Mas! – its projects – and add value to her audience. Listen/Watch Here
Client Membership/Learning Site
Working with Paula and her project was super-rewarding. It began as a Learning module to add to an existing site and morphed into the full project. Our client had their content in order and the end result is something to be proud of. See the Site
Field Service Trainer
What a hoot! One of the standout clients of Kurt directly was BRP. He got to travel with his mountain bike, visit state parks, and add value to 11 different Powersports dealers. Much of the teaching shared on-site was largely based on Powersport Academy ideology. Being able to physically visit clients in a COVID world was a wonderful release.
