About Jaime Slutzky
My passion is making tech accessible to self-proclaimed non-techie business owners like you! The ones who have been in business for a few years and have tried different kinds of software — but they aren’t really sure if they’re using the right ones (or even using them the right way). That’s why they tend to have all kinds of different apps and software components that aren’t fully integrated. Or worse, they’re just sitting there, collecting virtual dust (and expensive subscription fees).
Since 2011 I’ve been helping businesses run more efficiently so their owners can spend more time in their zone of genius and follow their business dreams. I develop solutions that are fully customized and integrated, so my clients understand not just how it works, but why it works.
Before I started working with entrepreneurs and small businesses, I worked in the IT department of Costco for more than a decade. That career was the culmination of years of hard work and dedication to computer science, including a BS in Computer Science from McGill University. In fact, I’ve been passionate about technology for as long as I can remember — as a kid, I even told my parents I was going to become a computer scientist!
The truth is that now I get to do what I really love: work with tech and help others understand it! My goal is to help my clients gain control over their tech AND feel confident in using it. My clients need their tech to work because many of them are juggling business and family, just like me.
I have two daughters with my husband (who also works in tech!), so I understand the struggle of balancing work and family. That’s why I rely on tech to help me stay efficient and productive so I can spend the time I have with my family focused on them — not answering emails or doing admin tasks.
In 2018 I created the Tech of Business podcast to help even more people understand how they can weave the best tech solutions into their business. This show presents business owners from a variety of backgrounds, in many industries (and most of them would not be considered tech-based!) so you’ll likely be able to find an episode that speaks to you.
And if you’re ready to take that next step and start getting your tech under control and working for you? Let’s do it.
