7 Countries in 21 days

Feb 26: Today I left Atlanta for a 3-week trip visiting 7 countries, mostly with the intent of learning more about how Computer Troubleshooters operates in each one. My trip will take me from Atlanta to South Africa, then Rwanda, Egypt, India, Malaysia, Australia, and finally New Zealand before returning home on March 17. It's going to be a long trip with way too many flights (17), but several of these countries are ones I've not traveled to before, and I've heard bits and pieces of things CT's are doing in each that might be beneficial to the rest of us, so I'm excited about the trip.

More Publicity for Computer Troubleshooters

It seems like every day more media outlets are picking up great stories from Computer Troubleshooters, including newspapers like the Worcester Telegram, the Kitsap Sun, and the Florida Weekly. I was also recently interviewed by ITbusiness.ca, Home Business Magazine, and Costco Connection Magazine - watch for those soon.

We're also getting more attention from business shows on talk radio, with live interviews this week with WQMX in Ohio, WMBI in Illinois, and a recorded interview with the nationally-syndicated Issues Today radio show (to be broadcast in mid-March). This week also saw the broadcast of my previously recorded interview with Mike Carruthers on the national "Something You Should Know" program (click here to listen to that archived broadcast).

Next week I'll be leaving to visit with Computer Troubleshooters in Africa, Asia, and New Zealand, but our excellent media relations team already has interviews scheduled for when I arrive back home in April - watch for more updates about that right here!

Our worldwide mission to eliminate computer problems is getting picked up by savvy talk show hosts around the country. Chip was interviewed this morning on WFLA radio in Florida (with Jack & Sharon), and later on the www.moneymatters.net "Daily Bear" show with Lou Michaels.

Next up: an interview tomorrow (Tuesday Feb 12) on WGST morning radio with Randy Cook in Atlanta, then:
  • KAHI AM 950 in Sacramento, CA on Feb 15 at 1:30pm with Mary Jane Popp
  • WNTN AM 1550 in Boston, MA on Feb 18 with Paul Roberts
  • syndicated nationally on Mike Carruther's "Something You Should Know" program the week of Feb 25.

On these interviews Chip discusses the problems small business owners have with their computers, and more importantly how the computer service industry (and especially Computer Troubleshooters) are adapting to eliminate computer problems altogether through managed services (like CT's B.E.S.T. service plans).
