Do you give up and concentrate on working for someone for the rest of your life or do you get Help...
Alvin B. Russell
Born in Cleveland, OH in 1964, I grew up in a single parent household. My father passing caused by cancer. Occasionally I hear people talk about memories at early ages, but I only remember patches of my younger years.
When my Dad passed I remember being called to the principals office and going home in the rain and seeing so many strangers in my house having a good time.
Imagine strangers saying how big I got and just laughing like it was a party. I don't remember talking to my mother, just going upstairs to my room and crying.
You get older and realize some people only come together in difficult times and they are happy to see each other because it's been a while. So its not like they are being insensitive to my families lost, just happy to see old friends.
Growing up my dream was to become a psychologist and help people with mental illness, but I was told that was too ambitious by a family member. So, I thought how I loved fixing old TV's and playing around with electronic gadgets - so I pursued a career in electronics. Higher education kicked my butt......... but I graduated from DeVry Institute of Technologies in Columbus, Ohio in 1982.
Graduating was very exciting, but after 2 months of not finding work I became sad and took a job as a short order cook! I don't want to talk bad about having a job, but cooking for a living was not in my plans. After several weeks of deep reflection, I moved to Dallas, TX and it was one of the best decisions of my life.
In Texas so many people are pleasant to strangers. What an adjustment, it was in the beginning coming from Ohio, where you never talk to strangers in Cleveland. My co-workers and strangers were asking me all the time about my day and weekend. Absolutely mouth open shocked!!
My best career job by far was becoming Southwest Region Service Manager at AT&T Wireless (McCaw Communications). What a great place to work with so many talented people. I thought AT&T would be my last job at the time, but my boss resigned and the person that took his place was awful.
To be honest, I never thought of owning a small business, but everything was on the table as future options. One of my responsibilities at AT&T was cellphone accessories. AT&T sold millions of dollars in cell phone accessories, so I thought maybe it could work for me too.
Call it a feeling because no business plan was involved – I just jumped off the cliff!
I started an E-commerce website in 1998 six months before quitting AT&T in the summer. My first website was ugly. I apologize for not finding a more attractive word, but I designed the website myself with no HTML experience. There was animated images and everything. It was ugly, but that website sold many of cell phone products.
Let me give you some background on the 1998 and how expensive it was to get Website Design, SEO, Email Marketing. Learning SEO was tough, but I had to. Companies wanted thousands of dollars a month a website. Website hosting was $600 and up. Can you imagine, well, I lived it.
SEO Rango was started out of my desire to help people. I enjoy what we do and it does not feel like most of the time and since I gave up on my dream of becoming a psychologist. Why not do something you love and passionate about. I was asked by a potential client what is different about your company? Sorry I have no marketing message to add here.
I am just trying to make a living doing something I love doing. You read part of my story, ask yourself would like to business with a guy like me. To succeed in business you need people that believe in your dream. Good Luck!
