From Cloud Computing to Security- New Basics in IT for Small Businesses
Questions and answers about cloud services have many small businesses or startup companies unsure of the best decisions for their IT structure. We will go through some steps that can help with making some decisions on new cloud technologies, company security, and ongoing IT management.
In 2001, after working as a support engineer and consultant for over 20 years, Robert Hilburn started GnatWork Networks to help bring technologies that were fiancially or technically out of reach for small to medium size businesses. Robert directed GnatWork in acquiring business from two failing IT support companies and building customer bases in medical, legal, and financial practices around the Southeastern United States.
Robert received a degree in Management and two minors in Psychology from Georgia Institute of Technology. He earned an MBA from Mercer University’s Stetson School of Business and Economics receiving both Beta Gamma Sigma and Phi Kappa Phi honors.

Where Businesses Go To Connect
Entrepreneurs. Freelancers. Consultants. Mobile professionals. Industrialists. Whatever the title, when it comes down to making business happen, numerous small business owners opt to bypass their home office or the expense of brick-and-mortar storefronts for the convenience of public Wi-Fi hotspots at coffee shops and bookstores. However, public may be too public…from loud background music and the chatty baristas to the librarian’s continuous reminder of the “Quiet, please!” sign.
The nation’s economic rollercoaster has made many rethink business expenditures, especially fancy “virtual” offices – matchbox spaces that too often feature more fees and isolated workspace. Sure, you may have a hi-rise downtown address, but is it worth it if you can’t afford the office space and office supplies?
What’s a successful business owner to do? Coworking spaces provide an opportunity for small business owners to mix work and business collaborations in a professional environment designed with them in mind. Coworking builds a community of focused, business-oriented people who desire increased productivity and networking. The BizLynks Center was born out of the desire to offer small businesses and mobile professionals a “work, learn, play” environment where they can work for themselves but not by themselves.
