I’m thrilled to introduce you to a new series I’ve started called;
The Brightly Business Spotlight,
I’m interviewing brilliant minds and fellow independent business owners to share their business perspectives, how they got started, what their struggles are and/or what advice they have to help others.
All of these are LIVE interviews held inside of my private Facebook group: www.facebook.com/groups/brightlybusinessbunch ---> click here to join if you’re an independent business owner or looking to get started as one!
The best part about this is that I get to interview the person LIVE, but my Facebook group also gets to interact, ask questions and hang out with us virtually. This is my favorite part.

For today’s interview, I’d like to introduce you to IT Smarty Pants, Nick Bowersox. He’s basically been a techy since he was born. Brought up in the world of technology he also possesses the gift of creative problem solving, which is a HUGE asset. One of the best things about Nick is his easy-going nature. He’s currently in college and could have his pick of where to go and what to do.
For this interview I wanted to ask Nick some specific questions on tech. How to backup files, what’s his process for creative problem solving, what are the most common questions he gets as an IT Contact, etc…
Is there an entrepreneur, scratch that, is there any person out there who doesn’t know the pain of tech? I don’t think so.
We’ve all experienced the tech issues. The swirling pinwheel or blue screen of death (okay, maybe that’s just what I call it). The moment where you lose all of your photos and you sit there staring at the screen in unbelief. That time where you were writing a long blog post, newsletter or outline and it all disappears.
Let’s hop into the interview. Watch below and then keep scrolling for recommended resources.
