NO child ever says I want to be a CEO/entrepreneur when I grow up. What did you want to be and how did you get where you are today?
Harrison Baron: When I was a child I just knew I wanted to work in tech. It was when I worked in an IT Company I found that I was better at being my boss than an employee. When I was an employee I was suggesting marketing companies to my clients who weren’t doing anything for them. When I started my own business I found that I was able to help them market themselves and they were more successful than ever before.

Share with us one of the most difficult decisions you had to make for your company that benefited your employees or customers. What made this decision so difficult and what were the positive impacts?
Harrison Baron: The most difficult decision I made was to decide how to afford to pay my employees during the pandemic when most of my clients went out of business. This was difficult for me because I wanted my employees to be paid for their hard work but I didn’t know how I could afford it. Therefore I decided to implement a work at home system. The positive impact was that implemented employee productivity as the employees were doing more work than ever before, which helped get our business up and running.
