MSP Voice Episode 22 – “You’re never too young for IT” with Robert Merva

Guest: Robert Merva

Company: Avrem Technologies

Starting at a young age, Robert started getting technical certifications. Before he graduated high school he was already doing a lot of IT work for the school district. This turned into a job with the school district after graduation but it wasn’t long before Robert decided he could make a business (and a living) out of helping people with their IT needs. Robert believes it’s very important to have your processes defined early and with long-term goals in mind. Robert really does love what he does for a living and can’t imagine doing anything else…it’s always great when you find your passion.
