C2K Consulting is the brain-child born of a need for quality consulting that aligns with actual business needs. Too many times I have seen “consultants” go into a business and set up solutions that are overkill for the operation. Take the “Mom & Pop” shop and sell them a $4,000 network firewall and spam filter they don’t need and can’t afford, mark it up 35% and charge $250 an hour to install the thing…that’s bad. Check that…it’s AWFUL.
C2K is different. I’m different. I simply cannot in good conscience sell somebody a piece of equipment or a service they don’t need or want. One, I’m not that good of a salesperson and two, I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night.
My grandfather came back from World War II with a purple heart and an honorary discharge after his service in the Army in Italy. He borrowed $30 from a local dentist, started his own plumbing company, and from 1959 until his retirement in the mid-90’s he did something that was honorable; he built a business based on trust and integrity. His employees were valued, his customers were honored and his vendors were paid. No corners were cut and no invoices were padded.
It is my stated purpose for this company, this association of professionals, that we provide that level of trust and integrity in everything we do whether it be a simple desktop computer repair, a scheduled social media post, or an enterprise-wide system integration. Our honesty and attention to detail will be second to none. We will not sell customers a “bill of goods” they don’t need.
The world hates lawyers for the same reason IT consultants are starting to get a bad reputation. We are going to kill that trend…starting now.
