I'm interested in building a business around providing IT services to small and medium sized organizations, through significant (by comparison) marketing, and creating a diverse skill set by hiring new employees.

I do a bit of this, and expect to do more in the future. I have clients that were originally my suppliers for my real estate business. Happens I'm more qualified than most for computer networking support, so when my carpet supplier's network crashed, and I happened to stop in that day to pick out some carpet...

Since then, I have as much of this kind of business as I presently can handle, just based on word of mouth.

Presently I service my clients as needed but am not trying to expand because all my energy is tied up with unwinding the real estate business - which, BTW, is difficult when you are in a depressed area - and in marketing my commercial software product which is one of the follow ons to the real estate.

But as the real estate winds down, the network support will increase.
