Commercial Construction & Computer Repair

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

Computers and technology has a major effect on our personal lives in the modern world.  As the economy improves so does our investment in technology, which allows people like myself to make a career out of computer repair and other important technological services. When discussing the state of the economy, it is important to consider the effect commercial construction has on almost every industry.

Commercial construction is vital to the economy, regardless of your industry. When we as a country are growing (commercial & residential construction), our economy is vibrant. Everyone benefits from a vibrant economy with more/better jobs, higher revenue, increased equity and a much better overall attitude across our community and country.

West Constructors is a prime example of quality commercial construction. Jack West and his family have raised the bar to a very high level through their experience and professionalism. Theirs and many other contractors’ contribution to our economy are critical as we crawl out of this recession.

The next time you; go to the bank, visit the market, shop for your children, consider the impact the construction industry has on your purchases. Support a local contractor and you will inevitably be supporting yourself.

Computer Repair Hickory & the Summer Heat

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

What does Computer Repair for Hickory and the Summer Heat Wave have in common you ask??? Quite a lot actually, the Hickory area has been a good city for me and my business, so as I work with local businesses and the Chamber of Commerce, I felt compelled to offer some summer heat advise to my friends. The message is Be Prepared.

Here Ya’ Go: 

With August upon us, the summer heat and humidity can quickly become an issue. Outdoor work is a necessity for most of us and being prepared for these summer conditions are important. Just like winter, we put on a coat before we leave the house, in the summer we must also prepare for the outside conditions.

Here are a few things I do and recommend to friends and family:

  • Hydrate – Water is critical for our bodies to cool itself, drink plenty of water.
  • Hat – If you must work in the sun, wear a hat to protect your head from sunburn.
  • Sunscreen – PF 40 is the minimum I use and if I’m vacationing on the beach or lake, I’ll up it to PF 50.
  • Plan & Prepare – If your work indoors, plan and prepare for your outdoor activity, schedule breaks and bring plenty of water. Don’t overdo it and know your limitations.

Stay Safe & Enjoy the Summer!
