I started out in the early 1990s in Titusville, Florida. I was using the family garage while repairing computers for my friends. It seems word of my work got around. ? Then things got a bit out of hand: I didn’t have any room remaining to work on our lawnmower, and there were too many computers awaiting repair. It seems I had everyone needing help. I couldn’t keep up with it all. So: I opened a computer repair store a couple of blocks away from where I had been living and working. Eventually, it was all nicely set up. The next year: Booming! That little garage became Diversified Computers Sales & Service Inc.

During that year, I added four technicians, plus a storefront clerk. All went well for a few months. There was plenty of work from the local area. Nextel contracted my firm as a dealer, for the Titusville area. (We were to sell and repair Nextel phones, per our agreement.) Shortly thereafter, we became dealers for Verizon and Boost phones. Wow, things sure went fast! :))

I had to hire three salesmen, plus an office/sales, lady. (Yes, she was my sadly now deceased mother: the key and best person there. Still: all employees were magnificent.) As we operated the Nextel and Verizon stores, we chose to stock high-quality computer supplies. As a result, soon more room again needed. !:) My firm rented half of the strip mall. We found ourselves needing to remove some walls, to put in a few doors, to build some benches, and to add a server room in the back! (I almost forgot to mention we were a dial-up ISP company. also ?
