I had the chance to be interviewed by Deb Brown, the Chamber Director at The Webster City Area Chamber of Commerce as part of their Member Blab Series. These are 15 -20 minute interviews to give members time to speak on their business, with a few leading questions. Deb and I have known each other for 10 years or so, so the interview went very smooth.
As of 2016, I will have been in business for 20 years, as I started in 1996 while working at KLMJ Radio. I decided to go to a full time status as of 2006 after Midwest Wireless claimed I violated their “non-compete” clause as they were getting into computer repair as well. Funny, I don’t hear the name “Tech Pros” anymore.
I talked about how things got started in 1979 when I helped my Father when he brought our first computer home program it so it could figure out the “perfect” batch of concrete, whether it be for a quarter of a yard or a eight yard load. The program was written in “BASIC” language, a language that I got pretty good at programming. I wrote tons of programs and I even got paid for some of them!
We discussed how people from Hampton and from Webster City sometimes take their communities for granted on what we expect from them. I don’t know the term, but we need to knock it off. If we host a visitor from another town, complaining about what we don’t have is not going to want to make them stay. In High School, I hated Webster City, because we always played them for Homecoming…and they were good.
Deb asked me about computer tips and tricks, so I do want to make sure people follow me on Facebook at my business page of www.Facebook.com/PatTheComputerGuy

(Sorry for the big yawn at the end.)
