463 I'm the boss now. What's this going to cost me?

Christina Jones, owner of ThinkPINK IT continues to share her journey of being an unexpected IT business owner.


The biggest change in going from the technician to the business owner revolves around how is think going to cost me and is this the best thing? Christina talks about how things have changed in moving from the break-fix model to MSP. 

Part of that transition is re-evaluating her stack. Along with cutting expenses, Chrisina is now investing back into the business instead of paying herself a huge paycheck. This is in an effort to make things better down the road.

Christina Jones

President & CEO

I have been in the industry for over 18 years and worked my way to being a business owner overnight- literally! You never know when life is going to throw you lemons. I am from Winston Salem, NC born and raised, married to my childhood sweetheart and we have 5 wonderful children 5 years- 21 years old.
Life as a business owner has given me lots of challenges along the way that have been fun and not so much fun. I am a woman that loves to overcome challenges and does not like to be beaten. It is my goal to be an inspiration to young and older women to pursue a career in the tech field. I am a huge networker and love to meet and build relationships with likeminded people all around. We are all in this together with the same end goal at the end of the day, so why not have fun doing it.
