In the Beginning:
Genesis! Stephen R. Woods was freed from the corporate world following the tragic 9/11 events. As a traveling V.P. of a fortune 500 company, Steve was hungry to stay home and work with real people again. Going back to his roots in computers, he focused on using his God given gifts to just help people who were struggling with computers. In 2003, Tech4Life was born. Throwing out conventional business strategies, Steve was all about helping people before he had invoices or business cards! Acts of service performed with love was the only priority. Steve was sure that if this was kept as the priority, everything he needed would be provided and fall into place in it’s time.
This has proven to be true, beyond comprehension, for Steve, Tech4Life and it’s customers.
The Growing Years:
This focus became the heart of Tech 4 Life. Customers proved shocked and amazed that someone actually cared and enjoyed spending time to create a relationship, even a friendship as it were. Customers who’s amazing food was more valuable than any money, paid with lunch. As word spread and people referred other people, the business got very, very busy. The temptations of success tried to alter the service and relationship focus. Something was needed as a constant reminder to Steve and to the computer customers of the original intent of Tech 4 Life.
The motto “Country Doctor Service” was born. Embodied in “Doc Adams” from Gunsmoke and the history of the American Country Doctor of years past, became the formal model for Tech 4 Life. Solving the issues that need addressed today, for the benefit of the people who are struggling.
Absent of the business success motive. Driven with the strength of experience and love for the neighbors. When service is performed in this manner, everyone gets what they need. Just as Steve thought in the beginning. This is the daily marching orders for everyone in Tech 4 Life. Customers need to expect this level of computer service and hold them accountable. Just like Festus would have!
