Successful Southern Sistas is pleased to present our May Feature Friday interview. This month we’re featuring Kimberly S. George, Owner of Lab-Ratz Technical Solutions in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. This under 30 tech savvy Diva is not taking no for an answer as she builds her successful Information Technology services company. Recently, we had a moment to speak to Kimberly and to learn more about how she’s blazing a trail for other women in the information technology field.
Please tell us about your background? I’m Kimberly George the owner of Lab-Ratz Technical Solutions.
I am a Louisiana native but relocated to Dallas Texas in 2007 after finishing grad school at Southern University A&M College to pursue a career in technology. In 2009, I started Lab-Ratz Technical Solutions – an IT services company that provides computer and network support to small businesses in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex.
Wow, there aren’t that many women in the I.T. field, How are you blazing a trail?
I think that I’m blazing a trail for women in IT honestly by having the courage to start a business in an industry that is male dominated. By starting Lab-Ratz, I’m showing the world that I/women are just as knowledgeable in IT and capable of helping small businesses owners with computer problems as my male counterparts.
What is the best business advice you’ve received?
The best business advice I’ve received was to remain resilient in my endeavors as a small business owner and to never give up on anything that you truly love and are passionate about doing. I’ve also been told to surround yourself with people who are going to lift you higher. For me, surrounding yourself with people who have your best interest at heart is very important. As a small business owner, there are times that you will get discouraged, and want to quit. Surrounding yourself with positive people who continuously motivate you to pursue your dreams no matter what– can make all of the difference in the world.
