The Ideal Computer Tech
Are you happy with your computer?
If so then you probably have a great computer tech. Or if you're really lucky, a team of great computer techs. That's great. I'm happy for you and I would never intrude on your happiness.
But if you are unhappy. If you aren't thrilled. If your technology doesn't empower your business, then it's time for something better.
Like everything else in life...it's all about relationships. See, your IT guy needs to be your priest, your shrink and your lawyer -- all rolled into one.
Your lawyer because he needs to be aware of new laws that effect your business. Technology is slowly becoming more and more regulated. A good tech keeps you one step ahead of the long arm of the law.
Your shrink handles mental health -- except, digital mental health is thrown into the mix too. Your tech keeps you sane by making sure your technology doesn't go insane. A good tech keeps everything on an even keel.
Finally, your priest listens to your wishes, dreams, confessions and dirty little secrets. More importantly, a priest listens and offers counsel and guidance. A good tech listens and helps you make wise choices.
And what ties all three of these together, the common thread between a priest, a shrink and a lawyer is that they all are required to keep their mouths shut. Not one is permitted to open their yaps about anything you say. A good IT tech keeps your secrets.
So, like I said before, if you are happy with your tech, then I'm happy for you. If not, then you deserve better. Don't settle for anything less than a priest, a shrink and a lawyer. You deserve better.
Start getting treated right --
