Why I started Whispering Dragons.

Whispering Dragons is my third business that I have started since I went into business. My first two were focused on video game development where we had a lot of fun and enjoyment working in that industry. Sadly it cost a fortune to keep a game studio running and moving forward. About midway through my second business I found a way to create a steady revenue stream for the game studio, though IT service providing for consumers and business to business. By doing so our first major client was over a very long weekend during the New Years where a company was shut down fully across the nation. Daniel and I along side with my business partner at the time spent 3 days working around the clock with little sleep helping that company get back up and running by the first of the year otherwise they would be out of business. After a few months pass we closed the doors to that business to create a IT focused business with just Daniel and I through the company called Whispering Dragons where we can provide that kind of service to all our clients moving forward.

How Whispering Dragons got its name

The part Dragon is about found memories. It is a way to remember during the worst of times to hold onto the happy moments, as those are the parts that will get you through those hard times. Whispering is a ploy on the owner as he is said to be soft spoken so it was a fun way to play off of that. As for the S it is the most important part of the name. It represents the true meaning behind the business. As Whispering Dragons is not single minded instead it is very community driven. The S represents the people we deal with rather it be the clients or the community itself to even just how driven it is about the staff and team within the business.

Why I created a business built off of support.

While I was growing up I use to help my grandfather when he was out working as an Electrician and Plumber. During the time I saw how he cared about each and every client and sometimes even gave them a break when the clients needed it. So as I developed this business I have been working on focusing on the same understanding as what my grandfather did. Focus on caring for the clients and helping where needed. As we move forward everything we focus on is making sure we can bring this to our forefront with each client.
