Fionda has expanded with products all over Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Once again, Way’s company ended up on the INC 500 list of Fastest-Growing Privately Held Companies in the U.S as number 220. The Fionda Group’s products included Local and Long Distance, Internet, and VoIP services. Fionda also provided Web Design services to the Direct Selling and Network Marketing Industry, managing hundreds of thousands of Sales Representatives of over one half billion dollars, and almost one million customers; tracking them to the appropriate sales representative, then to their respective host company, and calculated commissions 8 levels deep, paying out over $100M in commissions during its operations. Fionda was a Supplier Member of the Direct Selling Association, and its President served as a member of the DSA Board of Directors.
Piggybacking on the knowledge learned in the direct sales arena, helping everyday folks design their own websites, Way founded Hooza, LLC. in 2012. Hooza was a one-stop provider of professional build-it-yourself business websites designed to serve anyone from a home-based business to a full company storefront with online eCommerce sales. Pricing, ease of use, and flexibility were the keys to Hooza’s website building tools—and are what differentiated Hooza from the competition such as Intuit, Microsoft, Wordpress, Weebly, Wix, and others.
For thirty years Way has been talking to biblical scholars, studying the historical Jesus and early Christianity. He launched a nation-wide radio show called an Eye on Faith that aired for 2 years over ABC and 40 other independent stations throughout the US and Canada. The show won the prestigious New York Festival of Arts Award as the best religious radio show in the United States, and the third best in the world. On this show he interviewed Christian, Buddhist, Taoist and Jewish scholars, as well as archeologists, spiritual and religious leaders of many faiths.
Way recently started broadcasting a religious podcast which can be seen/heard at www.authortalk.audio. Way’s interest in the historical Jesus and first century Christianity, as well as all world religions garnered a listening audience of over 100,000 people world-wide during some of his author interview podcasts.
Way served for ten years as a member of the board of directors of the Westar Institute (popularly known as the Jesus Seminar) made up of some 200 New Testament scholars from around the world. These scholars study the historical Jesus, Paul, and the beginning centuries of the Christian faith.
