When Steve Jobs became ill, Apple was not that likely to go out of business. When the mom or the pop of a mom and pop shop becomes ill, that is another story.
Meet my dad. Owner of a small adaptive seating and positioning company for children with disabilities. After breaking both hips, being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and having his primary business computer crash, if I had not been there to help him get his business back on track again, it would be in dire straits by now. Instead, he was able to focus on his health getting better and he is now back to running the day to day operations of the company after many months of recovery.
I want to help other people who have face such obstacles be able to focus on recovering their health and letting The Other Realm deal with the rest of their life in an understanding, caring and inclusive way.
Especially very small business owners (1-5 employees, <$500,000 in yearly gross income; basic manufacturing, basic IT, art or media related industries [generally anything that does not require a specialized degree or license to legally operate])

Nearly everyone gets injured or comes down with a serious illness at some point in our life. Many people got by fine without much use of technology before they had this life changing event. Post injury/illness, however, they (and more than likely, you and me, sometime) can feel isolated and cutoff from much of the rest of society. While those with a little bit of technical and social resourcefulness can sometimes adapt and use technology as a means of connecting and gaining new skills to replace those natural ones they lost, many people need a helping hand along the way in order to make that transition. That is where The Other Realm’s service that is tentatively named “Other Help” comes in, providing online technical consulting so that people can establish a plan of step by step actions that you or those you love get back on your feet, headed in the right direction with friends and a steady source of income (if you are not yet of retirement age with social security/pension/ex.).
