I am probably dating myself, but my first computer was a Radio Shack TRS -80 microcomputer. And if you are of a certain age, I’m sure you remember those. And I’m sure you would agree we have come a long way.
My next computer was a 35-pound behemoth that I had to lug around because I was traveling to different locations with the American Association of Railroads. And I won’t bother you with the details of how this worked, but suffice to say it was a pain to use and operate.
Then I moved on to a luxurious Windows XP desktop computer. I thought I had hit the motherlode. It was fast and easy to use. How could it get any better than this? At around this same time I started working with computer networks. Computer networks made it so much easier for everyone to share data and work together.
I was enjoying life in the corporate world working with different computer platforms, finding solutions to pressing problems within the company I was working for and life was good. I had just received an award for saving the company thousands of dollars and streamlining their operations.… THEN 9/11 happened. The company was uncertain of what to do next. A month later I was unemployed.
I had to decide what to do next. Should I look for another job or start my own business? I decided to take what I had learned over the years to start helping small businesses create systems that would make their company more profitable by streamlining their procedures and keeping their computer running optimally and to save downtime.
