It was a tough struggle and six months later I emerged cancer free and highly determined to succeed.
Micro Net was converted from a side business to a full-time business called Micro Net Technical Solutions on April 1Merely a short year from our doors opening, I was diagnosed with a different cancer (Testicular germ cell tumor).
This time I could not work since I was hospitalized and bed ridden for months.
Small business owners of all sorts rose up and helped my family through tough times with love and support of all types.
I continued to keep a small client base, in the accounting, legal, building management, and mortgage broker business segments, while working at my full-time job.
In 2002 I was diagnosed with cancer (Hodgkin’s lymphoma) and battled with chemotherapy and radiation treatments for about a year before I was declared in remission.
Even dealing with cancer, a full-time job, and my side venture of Micro Net, I learned that I indeed loved providing computer support for small businesses because of the personal reward I received from helping people.Internal company politics eventually made my full-time job a lot less fun, and after six years of liking my job less and less I decided enough was enough.I began my computer and network systems career in 1992 with a large telecommunications company in Kansas City.From 1992 through 2009 I provided computer, network systems, security integration, supervisory, and manager level services to large departments in multiple organizations.My most memorable moments are when I worked with people to solve business process issues with technology, especially with computers and software.In the mid 90’s, business owner friends started asking me to help with their computer systems in their offices. Micro Net was formed in 1996 specifically to help small businesses with computer problems.
