Biography

Andre GardeI am an established IT professional, having fulfilled the roles of Systems Administrator and eventually Project Manager, with a reputation for getting the job done.  Some guys get tossed the football.  I’m the guy you want to toss the hand grenade.  Then send running into a minefield.  On fire.  Whatever the situation, I have been there, I have done that, and I’ve got the war stories to prove it.

I aspire to start an online business, utilizing Google Adsense as my primary monetization vehicle.  Having been a man on the ground for many years, I have been in the trenches through thick and thin, and have experienced countless obstacles and challenges.  In an ever-changing landscape that moves fast, it’s my hope that I can help you overcome the challenges when trying to do something like this and keep you focused on your goals.

After many years of deliberation I have decided to take my presence online once again. I’ve been on the web for quite some time when everyone was still using 2400 baud modems to navigate the Internet using Lynx.  Anyone remember Geocities or DejaNews? Or even further back, callback validators and 10-node ringdowns?

Yeah, I thought so.

I thought for awhile that the purpose of my blog would keep you centered where you are. I think that the more I wrote, the more my message becomes how to motivate you to go wherever you decide, because it’s the right thing to do.

Got CDO?

Although a lot of what I will speak about is from an IT perspective, I hope to engage a broad audience that will listen to what I have to say, understand, and apply the knowledge that I share.  It took a long time to realize what one of the things I’m passionate about.  That is, leveraging technology to establish meaningful relationships. Consuming information and learning new things where data can be accessed in an instant. Using that knowledge to produce relevant content that others will enjoy.  And finally, being able to sit back and admire my work.  Warning:  I will only admire good work.  If something is amiss, notify me and I will fix it.

If you’ve managed to make it all the way here, thank you for getting through this giant wall of text taking the time to read this.  Looking forward to hearing from you!
