Notable Quotes

● When you run 18 months in the red, you don't realize you're in the black for a few months after that because you're still trying to catch up.

● When you're trying to do something new, right? And you have a ton of people rallying behind you, that's a good help.

● Having clients that you can test with are critical, and so I love the fact you were able to identify a few of those. If that's not something you're doing in your business, I encourage you to do so.

● In general, marketing is one too many conversations. So it means one organization or person or whatever getting a message out there to as many people as possible. Whereas sales is a one-on-one conversation.

Who is Chris Moroz? 🧐

I started my career in IT long before launching my own business. Finding joy in learning about computers throughout my early teens and young adult years eventually led me to pursue work at Fortune 500 companies such as AOL and Dell, where I was awarded Top 5 sales awards at both companies.

Shortly after leaving Dell, I started Golden Years Computer Services, which served residential clients in their Oklahoma City homes. Within 6 months, as word began to spread of the high level of service being provided, we added small business support to our growing list of services.

Since the start of these companies in 2009, I'm flattered that I've received several nominations for OKC Biz Magazine’s Best of Business awards (and most recently nominated as best Cyber Security provider in OKC). As part of my belief that we can all improve other's lives, we've partnered with Feed The Children, and were recently able to donate a dozen computers to Bethany Public Schools to assist student transition to remote learning during the pandemic.

When I'm not busy saving the day for a small business owner, you can find me unplugging from all things tech: hiking and camping in Oklahoma’s breathtaking scenic parks, discovering new foods in locally-owned restaurants with his friends, and investing quality time with my wife, Kari, and two daughters, Gracie and Trinity.
