Jim Remsik of Adorable
Jim Remsik is the owner and founder of Adorable, a local software consultancy business that builds projects for other companies focusing primarily on web-service backed web applications. Adorable’s mission is, "To bring people together. We embrace and invest in our community and seek to use technology to improve the lives of those around us." How awesome is that?
At the end of August, Jim and the rest of the Adorable team started their fourth cohort of a program they developed in partnership with YWCA Madison to teach Web Development skills to people who may never have had the opportunity to ever learn. Adorable is prime example of a thriving local Madison business that cares and gives back to its community.
Tell us a little bit about your background before you started Adorable.
I have a wide ranging background from a printing apprenticeship, driving stock cars, to a wedding photographer.
What led you to decide to start your business?
Building teams for other people for a decade provided the confidence to start Adorable.
What’s your favorite part of running your business?
Helping my team be successful.
What’s the most challenging part of running your business?
Making sure that you keep everything moving such that you don't let your team down. Continuing to make sales and meet payroll is like a treadmill at times.
Is there anything new or exciting happening with your business now or in the upcoming months?
We're having a ribbon-cutting at our office with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce on September 15th which is open to the public. It's an opportunity to see how we've transformed the space in Madison's oldest surviving commercial building which has played host to a Bakery, Newspaper, & General Store to house a company on the forefront of technology.
