However Long It Takes

Written on April 26, 2019 by Brett Nordquist

Fresh out of college, I entered the workforce with a lot of enthusiasm, energy and the assumption that my education had taught me everything I needed to succeed. It didn't take long for me to realize I had a lot to learn, and that began one morning when my first manager called me into his office.

Making a Connection with your Customer

Written on January 25, 2019 by Brett Nordquist

Around Thanksgiving last year, I decided to take advantage of a sale at a popular online gaming company. After researching various titles I might enjoy, I settled on a game and purchased it through the store. The game installed fine, but wouldn't allow me to start a new game. I don't have a lot of patience when it comes to troubleshooting games. Games should be a break from work. I enjoy a good RPG such as Diablo that I can play with my sons or daughters. When this new game wouldn't launch, I searched Google for help, but after a few hours, I hadn't made any progress.

Out of Ideas

Written on August 31, 2018 by Brett Nordquist

A close friend recently had a defibrillator successfully placed in his chest. I was surprised when he explained how the doctors had him under light sedation where he didn't feel pain, but could hear the doctors converse during the four-hour surgery.

Voting with My Wallet

The Tarantula Hawk

Written on December 10, 2017 by Brett Nordquist

"My report is on the tarantula hawk. Can you read it and look for mistakes?" My son handed me a sheet of well-worn paper with thick lines and plenty of space for a fourth grader to write. I took a red marker in hand and began reading about the tarantula hunting wasp.

Written on October 20, 2017 by Brett Nordquist

Have you ever gone to an upscale restaurant on a special occasion? The hostess greets you immediately, and your table is ready. Your server is friendly and attentive, and the meal itself is everything you hoped it would be. Your table location, the lighting and the ambiance are perfect.

Keeping Up To Date

Written on October 11, 2017 by Wilson Chau

One comment I hear often when talking to a client is, "I used to keep up to date with technology, but it's been a while now, and I'm out of touch with the latest trends." I can certainly understand why.

Great Service from an Unlikely Source

Written on September 22, 2017 by Brett Nordquist

Sometimes you find excellent customer service in the most unlikely places. That's what I'd like to tell you about today. Just over four years ago, I left the state of Washington for the desert of southern Utah. In addition to trading the mild Seattle climate for the scorching summers of Utah, I was now on the hook to pay state income tax. Washington finds a way to get their pound of flesh through higher sales and property taxes, but completing my end-of-year accounting was easier in Washington because all I had to worry about was Federal taxes.

Family Photo Storage Options

Written on August 28, 2017 by Wilson Chau

I'm not a professional photographer and neither is my wife. Heck, we're not even amateur photographers either. I'd say we're more social photographers. Beyond the occasional spur of the moment, all our pictures are from special occasions like our kid's birth, vacations, birthday parties, etc. I'd imagine many of you are similar. We've amassed thousand of photos throughout the years, and our current method of backing those up is burning them to a DVD. There has to be a better way.

The Best Service for Sharing Large Files

Written on July 14, 2017 by Brett Nordquist

Over the past few years, customers have asked us to recommend a service for sharing large files. In the past I've recommended Dropbox to those sending files under 2GB. But what if you need to send a really large file, say a 50GB file? And what if you need to send that 50GB file to five people in different locations?

Have a problem? Don't Wait!

Written on July 7, 2017 by Wilson Chau

I was recently having some issues with my cable internet and TV. At first, the cable box would periodically freeze and we'd be unable to change the channel. About the same time, the internet would cut out as well too. At first, it was only happening a couple of times a week. Eventually, it started happening a couple times a day.
