In 2014, I realized that I had spent my entire career helping large to mid-sized companies with their Macintosh technology needs.
During that time it was hard to find good employable candidates with the level of Apple knowlege I needed in order to use some of the base benefits offered to me, namely vacation time.
When I did find a good consultant it was often a hard sell to upper management to keep them on as needs progressed. Instead I found myself working harder, later and longer than I ever wanted to.
Wanting more but still with a passion for Mac's in the workplace, I started my own company, Grove Technologies. Our goal was and still is simple, offer quality, affordable Mac help to small and mid-sized communities in the DC Metro area.
One of the most valuable resources to me at the time was this article. Outlining basic steps that you can take to change your life and to start consulting on your own.
The scariest thing for me wasn't quitting my job, it was wondering if I could actually run a business. The first few years were hard. I had no real business experience and while I got lots of pointers from lots of consultants finding a mentor was a challenge.
One of the things we strongly believe in is the concept that there is never a shortage of work, nor a threat to meeting, knowing and working directly with other small to mid-sized consulting companies. Thats why we want to give back.
