Starting ReluTech - Thank You Meatloaf!

I recall one day in Sept 1980, during the beginning of my senior year at Fort Walton Beach High School. It was still very hot in the Florida Panhandle– nearly 90 degrees. Fortunately for me, wearing shorts, flip flops and tee shirts was appropriate attire at our school. I was out in the school parking lot one day and Ann Margaret Thompson (not her real name) was walking towards me smiling. She was the most beautiful girl at our school, perhaps in all of Florida. I couldn’t imagine someone more beautiful in the entire universe.

Good to Great in Drunken Lawn Darts

Over the past few years, I have been asked the same question 100’s of times: What has been your strategy in starting all your successful companies? It is hard to believe, but I am now on my 5th company (Canvas Systems, Optimus Solutions, Corus360, Relus Cloud, and ReluTech). There were a few others I was either involved in or started as well (Atadata, FastIT and IHaveIT). To the strategy question, I usually shrug my shoulders and provide a somewhat lame response. “I dunno, it was a combination of lucky timing and having a great team”, is my usual answer. I often add, “I really have never had a strategy”. I guess that has never been entirely true. I have actually had a crazy strategy that finally deserves a name - Good to Great in Drunken Lawn Darts.

Ladies in Technology : Inside ReluTech

As part of the initiative of continued engagement among employees, an idea came to fruition when we recently decided to formulate a group that empowers the women who work here. The group we formed is known as ‘Ladies in Technology’. Female employees in ReluTech meet once a month to go over upcoming events in our community, discuss openly about life as a woman in a male dominated industry, and even incorporate a book club within the group to read all sorts of inspirational books by female writers. Not only does this group bring out more engagement among the women within our organization, but it has been amazing to see all the men rally behind the Ladies in Technology - they even attend all the different events we have been going to as well!

5 Ways to Be Successful at a Startup

I hear it all the time, “I can't take any more PTO”, “I hate my job”, “Only 3 more days until the weekend!”. Most of my peers are working at large corporations where they’re miserable with their day to day responsibilities. But, when they hear about my day to day, our unlimited PTO, flexible hours, beer on tap, and fun work culture, they think I have the best job around. At a startup that's run the right way, there is a lot of flexibility - you are able to have input, spend time with executives, and if you are ambitious and successful, you have the ability to be noticed and move up quickly. However, a startup environment is not one that all types can thrive in. You need to be disciplined, motivated, and above all, productive, as there is nowhere to hide in a small company. Below are my top 5 ways to stay productive at a startup:

My Transition into Technology Sales

“I think I want to go into sales…” is a phrase I hear a lot of my friends, who currently hate their jobs, say when they see the success others have obtained in a sales role. There is almost a façade around sales that it’s easy to do and you’re guaranteed success. I know when I first thought about going into sales that was my idea, but boy was I wrong…

Quota Trip: What it means for an IT Recruiter at ReluTech

…”And the word of the month is Intention!”, said our President, Ted Pappas in our weekly Monday morning meeting (ironically called TedTalks). The discussion of being intentional with our customers failed to escape me as I sipped on Jack Daniels during our Quota Trip in Cancun last week. Funny how even the strongest drinks can’t quell the most compelling of statements and ideologies. And although I hit my quota for the second year in a row, the stakes are raised and the better I have to be at my job. So what do I do for a living? I’m an IT Recruiter for a company called ReluTech which has 3 business segments:
