ABOUT JIM HOWARD...
After a successful military career in the US Army (my first career), I tried my hand at working in corporate America as an Electronics Service Engineer (my second career) for several South Carolina companies. I designed and maintained several state-of-the-art computerized process control systems used for continuous production lines. One of these companies manufactured web-based products, such as, adhesive tapes, textiles and carpet. The other company produced man-made fiber monofilament products.
In 1991, I decided to leave corporate America and work as a free-lance process control system consultant and designer (my third career). I traveled a lot throughout the US and overseas.
In 1995, I decided to reorganize and try out this new-fangled thing called the Internet (my fourth career). In 1975 I had worked on a project with the US Army that used computers in a centralized location to communicate via satellite and landlines with other computers worldwide. It wasn't called the Internet in 1975, but now I know that's what it was.
Today, I work with all types of small businesses to get maximum use from their Internet resources. Everything from retail stores to service type businesses; from real estate agencies, advertising agencies and food service providers to newspapers and not-for-profit organizations.
Needless to say, I have learned a lot about small business operations; I have shared in their successes and failures.
I use my knowledge and expertise to design and maintain applications that use this wonderful tool we call the Internet. I don't think I'll have to start a fifth career. This one is keeping me busy and I love helping others be successful and make money.
Some of my favorite things to do are:
1. Family Genealogy http://www.thegenealogytree.com
2. Working with my wife Kitty and her High School and College students.
3. Travelling to the North Carolina mountains.
