We also provide water damage treatment for data recovery using the latest microscope technique and fix the so-called “touch IC disease” on the iPhone 6+.
As a business owner, what resource organizations have helped you along the way, and how?
The Latin American Chamber of Commerce has helped by teaching me about tools for small businesses. And, other repair shops.
How did you learn to fix smartphones and electronics?
I’ve worked on electronics and computers for 20 years. Phones are computers. After soldering on big devices for 20 years, I started micro soldering two years ago.
What advice would you offer someone who wants to open a brick-and-mortar, walk-in store?
Research the field, train yourself to become the best and make sure you like what you do!
What is the best business advice you’ve ever received, and who did it come from?
Learn one new thing every day. Never stop learning. This advice came from my last boss.
