This Saturday, the 15th of August, marks the 2 year anniversary of Volano Solutions. That’s the official date – we were moonlighting since February of 2005. It all started when Rod and I were kicking around business ideas and looking up URLs. We thought of one, fieldhouse, and found the owner of the URL lived in Omaha. Rod called him, talked about his URL and found out he was consulting at Lindsay Manufacturing and needed some help on an Access database. We told him we could help – and we did a bit of work for Lindsay. We formed our LLC February of 2005 and did some work at nights and weekends. It wasn’t until August 2007 when we finally quit our day jobs to do this thing full-time.
Since then, we’ve hired two employees, have a sub-contractor working about full-time, and a guy who represents us. We moved to the Farm Credit Building and started in a closet – about 200 square foot, now we have multiple rooms in our office and the server rack isn’t next to my ear. It’s definitely been very enjoyable and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
