More About This Title Start & Run a Rural Computer Consultant Business
This book is a step-by-step guide for the IT professional working a high-stress job who dreams about moving out of the city, but still wants to make a living working with computers. It can be done! This is exactly what author John Deans did in 1999 when he left one of Houston's most successful IT companies, moved his family to rural Texas, and started a home-based computer consulting firm. Small towns are a relatively new niche for computer consultants, but they offer ample opportunity for starting a successful small business. To excel in this environment, you must become a jack-of-all-computer-trades and enjoy working closely with many clients every day. Owning your own business in a rural environment that may be unfamiliar to you presents challengesbut the rewards are definitely worth it. Deans will help you every step of the way.
John Deans has been working in the IT industry since the early 1980s. In 1991, he was one of the founding members of Paranet, a Houston-based computer network integration consulting firm that grew to have over 2,000 employees in 23 offices by 1997. After Paranet was sold to Sprint, Deans moved his family to a ranch near Brenham, Texas. In 1999 he founded Deans Consulting, LLC, and he now has a thriving business in the Brazos Valley area in rural Texasand is loving the lifestyle of a rural computer consultant.
