Smart Business Solutions - About Us

Our Story

Smart Business Solutions began like many other companies - we saw a need which wasn't being met by other local businesses, and we took the opportunity to solve that problem. Here is our story:

In 2005, my wife Sheila and I moved our family back to the area after 10 years of living in Charlotte, NC. While adjusting to being a stay-at-home mom, Sheila wanted to start a small project to help local families affected by major illnesses. I liked the ideas that she had and told her to call around for pricing on business cards, a brochure, and a website. And that's where things got interesting...

After being on the phone for the better part of a week, she was ready to give up on her idea. The designers didn't print; the printers didn't do layout work; the web companies didn't manage the site. She was at a loss. She wanted to get her project off the ground and start helping people, but couldn't get it done without paying 10 different people.

Having some previous design and coding experience, I offered to help her get things started. Knowing what she was going for as a design theme, I sat down and laid out a few mockups of cards and a brochure. I then matched that theme to a website layout, set up a hosting account, registered her domain name, and uploaded the site. Only THEN did she get to see what I had been working on. Her first words - "You need to be doing this for a living! This is better than what I imagined my stuff could look like.". A year later, Smart Business Solutions was born.
