The first incarnation of We Fix Computers was established in the owner's garage. Since then, the bonded and insured business has grown to the point of preparing 200-camera surveillance systems and custom home-theater setups. Its certified computer technicians haven't lost sight of their down-home beginnings, however—today, they still strive to be friendly and helpful as they answer clients' questions about technological problems, which can range from broken keyboards to the "blue screen of death" that occurs when you take your laptop scuba diving. They also detect and remove viruses, install operating systems, and recover data from spent hard drives, drawing on their knowledge of several electronics brands. For problems that can be fixed onsite, they also dispatch team members on efficient house calls.

A passion for insects may seem unusual to some, but it can lead to successful careers as varied as a zoo employee or a pest-management specialist. Jerry Powers uses his certification in entomology as the knowledgeable head of his company, Pro-Tech Pest & Lawn Management. He and his team inspect and treat homes for ants, roaches, and termites and confirm whether a giant spider is just the dog in disguise.
