Archived: Taylor: Digital Now IT – A small business consulting firm that seeks to provide guidance and advice on all things technology to growing small businesses and non profit organizations

iCrowdNewswire - Jul 23, 2015
Personal Story

Taylor Johnson and Tyler Best have been best friends since high school. For several years, they have dreamed of opening a successful small business in the local community of Corydon. As God has provided the opportunity, they believe this is the perfect time in which to make this dream come alive.

Taylor has lived in Corydon for 11 years now. He spent his formative years of life in this community, attending Lanesville schools after moving with his dad, a United Methodist pastor, and family to various churches in Indiana and Kentucky. There is no doubt that he calls this community home.

Tyler grew up in Harrison County in Elizabeth, but also attended junior high and high school in Lanesville and church in Corydon. He recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Evansville, but is glad to be back home, living in Corydon.

Taylor will be a senior at Hanover College beginning this fall. Tyler will be a student at Asbury Theological Seminary. After prayerful consideration, both have committed to hold off future plans in order to commit more time to Digital Now IT. Taylor will hold off plans to attend law school after college for a few years and Tyler will take a reduced course load while attending seminary.

Taylor and Tyler both believe the time is now. Not only do they seek to fulfill a dream, they also think this is the perfect time for technology to change the economic landscape for businesses and non-profits in the local community. They both share a deep passion for technology and believe it has a great ability to aid people in achieving higher levels of productivity. Starting a small business that has the potential to positively enhance our community for the future is something that excites these two young entrepreneurs.

Business Description

Digital Now IT is a small business consulting firm that seeks to provide guidance and advice on all things technology to growing small businesses and non profit organizations. We will focus on four areas of assessment; technological needs, development of a customized technology plan, training on how to utilize software and hardware, and maintenance of all technologies used by your firm.

Digital Now IT was created after my best friend and I were approached by local business leaders in May who recognized the need for a local IT firm in our community. Providing quality and reliable IT service has always been a passion of ours, so the opportunity to run a local IT consulting firm was something we jumped into enthusiastically.

What is the purpose of this loan?

A loan through Kiva will assist Digital Now IT in covering start up costs when we open in July. The first item the loan will go towards is rent for offie space in downtown Corydon. The space costs $500 a month and the loan will cover the remaining rent through December. Digital Now IT will also be using the loan to purchase office furniture and equipment to create a professional looking space that shows clients feel like they’re dealing with a top tier firm. Computers will also be purchased for a receptionist as well as for Taylor and Tyler. The cost of all office equipment and furniture can be estimated at around $1,200. This loan will also be applied to bringing adequate internet into the office. As an IT consulting firm, high-speed internet is a must to communicate with clients and develop websites. The current internet rate is locked in at $140 per month. The remainder of the loan will be applied to purchasing internet through the end of the year.
