On average, I would build and sell about two to three computers a month. This was my first step into entrepreneurship, and I was thrilled to be making money selling computers! One of the computer parts distributors I bought from, SuperCom, ended up hiring me to build computers for them on a full-time basis.
From my experience building computers, my next upward move was managing a computer shop. After not too long I was doing most of the work and running the business. I figured I may as well start my own business! In 1995 I successfully pitched two partners who were eager to start this new endeavor with me. My partners and I worked together to grow our new computer store building and selling computers.
I shifted our company’s focus in 1997 and moved from hardware to computer networking. I also added Internet access and was one of the first companies to offer Internet service to the Wasatch front in 1999.
At the turn of the century C Solutions started offering DSL Services instead of a dial-up for high-speed Internet service across the Wasatch. We were an early provider of broadband service to both residential and commercial clients.
Selling off the Internet service part of the company in 2006, I continued to expand our computer networking and consulting offerings. In 2009 we started offering cloud hosting (IaaS, SaaS), I.T. managed services, and VoIP phone systems.
