Recent Activity  -


I founded Double R Consulting 3 years ago after retiring from my 4th systems integrator in 28 years. The difference is,,,,I now get 89% of the profit instead of 20% commission. The other 11% is comm and travel cost plus clients luncheons. I kept five clients and you would know them all by name. Most I have had for 25 years. I have an office on my farm and if I am not on the road that is where I am Prefer not to say
