JFS Consulting is now Sohodojo Business Services
Jim Salmons and Timlynn Babitsky are pleased to announce the rebranding of JFS Consulting as Sohodojo Business Services. Our new web presence is here at www.Sohodojo.BIZ.
Our name change aligns our on-going personal business services with our social and small business advocacy activities as founders of Sohodojo, the independent non-profit applied R&D lab supporting solo and family-based microenterprise and small business networks in rural and distressed urban communities.
JFS Consulting was the name we fell into using in the 1980s while in graduate school where we met and began our business services adventure. By combining Jim's technical skills and Timlynn's training and Japanese language/culture background, we were well-positioned in southern California to provide technical writing, and what would become known as desktop publishing skills, to the Japanese electronics firms bringing waves of new products into the U.S. at that time. When asked by our first client for our business name, we simply went with the name Jim used as an independent consultant prior to graduate school.
Since 1984 under the name, JFS Consulting, we have been providing business services to a range of clients, helping them tap into the power of digital, Internet and Network Economy technologies as each new wave of technical innovation emerges. High tech stints in object technology and corporate business process environments kept us at the forefront as technology rapidly evolved. By the late '90s, we recognized a powerful fit emerging between our graduate studies in social network theory and the leading edge of the technical revolution.
Since 1998, under the name Sohodojo - R&D Lab we have been applying social network theory - like what we see today in MySpace, FaceBook and YouTube - to create new business models and alternative markets. Sohodojo has researched, designed, developed and tested Internet-based platforms that capture the power of social networks, community based on-line interactions, and small business networked ecosystems.
Sohodojo Business Services combines under one name our long standing support of small businesses and our pursuit of alternative business models and alternative markets where people - social networks - drive economic transactions with their focus on "who," "how," and "why" rather than "how much" and "where."
