Learn About the Business Side of the Technology Business

We'll have a discussion about the business side of the computer helping profession. Even though you are (or are training to be) a qualified technical professional, you're also running a business. The issues we’ll discuss affect not only those of us who are in business for themselves. It has become essential for everyone in the computer industry, either solo, group, or corporate, to be aware of the challenges involved in running a business, and to learn ways to meet them effectively and successfully. As you’ll see, the business side is intimately woven with the other parts of your professional life. We'll discuss business structures, money matters, offerings, training, outreach, co-workers, colleagues, and vendors. We'll deal with the hardest subject: dropping dead safely. Some professions call this the "succession issue" -- what happens if you get sick, if you die, or if you're otherwise indisposed? We'll go over the plans you need to put in place for taking care of your customers, your business matters, and your personal life.And we'll discuss some challenging real-life cases. About the speaker, Adam FrostAdam Frost works as the coordinator of Computer Care and Learning, an educationally-oriented computer helping company. While some of our colleagues and competitors encourage “outsourcing” of all computer care to them, we encourage our customers to get to know their computers and train their staff in computer care. We find this helps our customers develop deep skills in computer use as a key part of business strategy and action.  Computer Care and Learning has a longstanding internship program, where we train people to be skilled computer helpers, and we also help run the Get Connected! clinic, which provides refurbished computers to customers with low and moderate incomes.  To learn more, come to the meeting, call Adam's company at 617-325-9526, or email him at Where?
