Growing up in an entrepreneurial family, the idea of creating and operating a business always intrigued me. It was something I knew I always wanted to do. What I didn’t readily realize was my enthusiasm for technology. Looking back I have fond memories of playing games on our Apple IIe, but it wasn’t until high school that it clicked. I was strongly considering becoming an accountant, and I remember walking away after a job shadowing experience reflecting on what I liked most. I liked the numbers but what I really liked was how they leveraged technology.
After I graduated from college, I worked on a federal project managing networks of testing labs they used to certify and hire the first TSA employees across the nation. Once the project was completed in 2002, I moved back to my hometown Sleepy Eye, MN and started what is now Thriveon. By 2005 the business was growing fast and my father Steve, a business owner himself joined me as my partner. My father’s experience as an electrician working with business owners to reduce risk and my passion for helping company’s better leverage their technology investments proved to be a winning combination. It sent us on a different path that allowed us to create our Unique Proven Process which produces a different end result one that our clients have found of tremendous value.
