Sustainable Computing

(21 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I have found that each Mac user has a unique set of needs, preferences, and expectations about how technology should work for them. This leads to a good amount of frustration that we discuss in detail, which I help resolve. Then, we discover new opportunities for growth and success. Additionally, the benefits of my MBA in Design Strategy experience rippled out to my business development. I have significantly shifted my line of questioning with clients who appreciate my patience, inquisitive approach, a wealth of knowledge, and the ability to meet them where they are. “I coach Mac users,” I tell people. I love having a clear pitch about what I do. Feeling passionate about my work adds value to the wisdom and confidence I am able to offer to others in order to improve their experiences with technology.

What or who inspired you to start your business?

I’ve been into technology for over 30 years primarily for its usefulness in producing content or achieving a goal. Late in high school, I discovered how to combine my passions since childhood of helping others with the enthusiasm I drew from useful technology with a strong value for eliminating waste and a knack for high-efficiency into the world. Combining my sometimes clashing interests in environment and technology, I formed a small business based on a core philosophy: Helping people learn to use computers more efficiently. This might mean that they can spend less time using them. Hence, it’s indeed Sustainable Computing.

    (3 reviews)

    Do you need some friendly, patient, one-on-one lessons, teaching, training, and tutoring in the use of personal computers (Mac & PC), mobile devices and apps (Apple iPhone & iPad, Android smartphones & tablets), or other computer-related programs, features, and services? Or perhaps you'd like your website and business to appear much higher in Google organic search results, dramatically improving your Internet presence and reputation, and attracting significantly more customers and revenue. Please don't fall for the sales pitches of unscrupulous SEO companies ... they make false promises and implications, lock you into overpriced ongoing contracts, and deliver very poor results. Perhaps most importantly, they employ techniques that are not "Google-friendly" ... Google does not approve of their practices, and actually penalizes your website and your business by ranking you much lower in Google organic search results. I utilize only Google-friendly SEO techniques ... my results speak for themselves, and I'm glad to show you the unbiased results. Some of the areas in which I can help ... - Computer basics/fundamentals (Mac & PC) - Microsoft Office - Organizing your computer's files & folders - Making full use of the Internet (including downloadable programs) - Protecting your computer from viruses, spyware, & other malicious software ... and removing them - Arranging your workplace for optimal health - Google-friendly SEO for your website and your business
