Who’s running this place?

I am! Hi there – I’m Deb Lee and I’m the Tech Guide around here. I help small office and home office (SOHO) professionals get more comfortable with technology. And, don’t worry, I don’t use a lot of techie-speak (though I will admit to being a little geeky). I’m all about making technology understandable to real people. Have a question for me? Feel free to get in touch.

Who else is here?

SOHO Tech MembersDon’t worry, you won’t be alone. Several members are here, too. They’re men and women entrepreneurs just like you, so you’ll likely have a lot in common even though your industries may be varied.
