Summer 2005 Camping and Vacation Adventure (227kb - .pdf)

I started working in a small software store way back in 1983. A friend helped me get the part-time job while I was going to college. It was a time when the first IBM PC and Compaq pc were on the market. The Commodore Vic-20, C64 and Apple computer were the rage. Everyone wanted to be part of the new generation of computer users.

While working in the store, I learned all about the above computers. Especially the software and operating systems. As time moved on, so did the software and the small software store started selling hardware.

Fast forward to 1989. I was responsible for 70% of all the hardware and software sales at the small store. I was also dating a nice girl and started thinking of “our” future together. This future required more “benefits” than the small computer store could provide. So I left there and started working in sales of consumer electronics, but still kept my hand in computers by doing work nights and weekends and generating a customer base of my own.

Unfortunately, at the end of January 1991, the electronics store I worked for closed it’s doors, and all employees were laid off. It was then that I decided to start my own computer business.

Computer Care was created February 1, 1991. It was started first as a part-time business while I worked selling car phones for two years. But after two years of selling car phones, I realized that I just did not have enough extra time to properly care for my customers.

In January 1993, Computer Care became a full-time job. My wife of 2 years supported me 100% in my new endeavor, knowing if it did not work out, I could find a new job easily.

I never looked back. It is now 2004. It’s been an exciting and fast 10 years. I still love what I do, and the people that I meet. The technology is still as fascinating and challenging as it ever was, even more so now.

Now with a 9-year-old son that is learning about computers very quickly, I have thoughts of becoming a “father and son” business some 10 to 15 years in the future. But we’ll see.
