Innovating. Motivating. Accelerating.

"Success is 10 percent inspiration and 90 percent perspiration.” Thomas A. Edison

"My main purpose is to see that my client’s business succeed, and in most cases, achieve its goal of making a transition to more efficient and profitable systems used to conduct their business. This typically entails some use of newer technology."

"In most cases, when introducing technology into a business system, I bring more to the table than just website or software development, and there are no sales commissions involved in my pricing.  I have been involved in improving systems and using technology to increase my client’s bottom line since 2012 as owner and President of Click IT, and have a vast amount of experience, including doing the development work myself, as opposed to relying on others, although managing them is a large part of my work as well."
