Consulting Services

Tired of trying to figure out the technical mumbo-jumbo?

I make it simple by talking about problems and their solutions, not gadgets and widgets. I help business owners generate more revenue in less time.  With 12+ years of experience and several certifications, I offer professional technology services to clients around the world.

My technical background includes the standard fare of computer networking and protocols including server management, AD and Oauth authentication, DNS, routers, Google Apps, mobile devices, website and network security. On the internet side of things, I am experienced in content mangement systems, ecommerce, web server management, hosting, domain names, cloud apps, SEO, Google Analytics and more.

But, I explain all of the above in plain English

Testimonials

My tech was a mess! Adria untangled, uncluttered and organized the mess – and turned it into a high functioning, coordinated, and sophisticated system. She updated, upgraded, saved and synced my email, contacts, calendars, CRM, backups and more – basically, every tech function needed to run a successful business in 2011. Adria taught me to embrace my inner geek and helped me become a power-user of technology. She’s a tech expert who also has fantastic people skills. She combines warmth, patience, savvy, and a sense of humor. If you want to be organized, efficient, and effective while you’re online, hire Adria. If you want to work with an entrepreneur superstar, technology leader, and inspiring individual, hire Adria.

I got a lot more out of this training than with most classes I’ve experienced. Adria doesn’t just guide you through the steps of creating a site, she tells you what the steps mean, so you feel more confident in the skills you take away from the class. She really is about empowering her students, not just setting up their sites for them.

It would be impossible for me to be doing the things I do without the technology sessions with Adria.  Now I can work with my PC desktop and Macbook along side each other.  When we sit down at work for a meeting, I realize that I’m much further along than my colleges on a lot of the technology.  I’m creating videos, making decisions about new solutions and am now exploring a new ecommerce solution.  All thanks to the technology coaching with Adria Richards!
