Last year, someone nominated Homeland Secure IT, LLC for the Greenville News “Best of the Upstate” award for Best Computer Service. Thanks to our friends, family, customers and vendors, we actually won! Honestly, I didn’t think we would. It’s not because I don’t believe we are the best, it’s because the other fine service providers have many advantages over us. …

In our busy lives, it’s rare to have an event that makes us immediately stop and think, “Wait…What?”  Exactly how I felt last week when news began to trickle that something terrible had affected my son’s world. My Friday morning started with the usual rush of getting Brett up, fed, packed and out the door early since the football team …

He’s not taking the new job for the pay, which I could counter if that were the case, he is taking it because it is located …
