Chris has worked in the computer industry since starting as a field tech and working his way up to premier tech support. During this time he began teaching and designing courseware for 3 different schools. He was teaching engineering classes by his 3rd year when he landed a job with a cutting edge accounting firm as an IT manager. Follow Us.

But we still do. We still have routers and cabling and switches in the office. And so all of this needs the tech guy. You know who this is, right? He last showered when Windows 7 was released. He has a goatee, and probably a pony tail.

He fixes one thing and ten other things break. He drinks coffee or Red Bulls. You pay him by the hour or maybe you have a monthly contract with him. You need him. He makes sure your systems keep running so your business can keep running. Not all tech guys were created equal.

Most tech guys think their clients are idiots when it comes to tech. But rest assured, there are plenty of other tech guys who likely think the same about your tech guy. In the corporate world there are tech guys who deal with very complex security, data, application and connectivity issues. They come with respectable academic pedigrees and work for years in the bowels of giants like Oracle, SAP and Google. Your tech guy is likely not one of these guys.

The barrier to enter the world if independent IT consulting is almost non-existent. And maybe your tech guy did work at Oracle. But that may not qualify him to be a tech guy. Because tech, like any other industry, has many sub-specialties. I know plenty of competent C programmers who know nothing about configuring a network. Don't take their word for it. Lots of tech guys like to make their clients feel like nincompoops. They toss around unrecognizable words and give you withering looks when you ask simple questions.

Tech guys pretend they know the answers. Trust your own common sense. Before spending a lot of money on a new project, get some other tech guys in to give you their second opinions. Technology is an art, not a science. Get used to stuff breaking. Your tech guy is likely a Microsoft person. That means he's used to stuff not working all the time and he accepts this.

You should too -- to a degree. This is not entirely the fault of the tech person. There is a part of technology that cannot be explained, perhaps for the same reason no one can explain why Duck Dynasty is such a popular show. It is like dark matter. So you let it go. Tech guys are used to dealing with an imperfect world.

You will have to accept this. And make sure you know where to reach him when the problem inevitably re-occurs. Just remember, your tech guy may be halfway decent at technology. Treat him fairly, but be tough. Some tech issues are not worth fighting. But others are important, so push for the answers you need. Entrepreneur Media, Inc.

3 Things You Need to Know About Your Tech Guy

Stan is prompt, thorough, and patient! I am not adept at technology. He has helped me set up a new laptop and printer. As problems arise, he responds quickly, explains things simply, and never seems to get flustered. As I learn how to navigate my new laptop, it is comforting to know any problems or questions I might have are resolved with a quick email or phone call.

But we still do. We still have routers and cabling and switches in the office. And so all of this needs the tech guy.
