Bio:

Hello Everyone, I am Evelyn, co-founder of IntegrityBSSLLC.

Over the course of the past 45+ years, I have been engaged in multiple streams of education, training and work experience in my obsession with learning, understanding, developing, and all things technology, owning my very first mechanical device similar to the typewriter on the cover page as young as 10 years old. As soon as the electric typewriters came out, I had to have one, so I washed my neighbors dishes, vacuumed her floors, did her laundry, and babysat all her babies, all on the same day of the week, every week, just so I can earn the money to pay for one. They were a few hundred dollars, so my mom purchased it on credit and I paid the note each month. I was just 12 years old at the time.

Soon after came computers and it was the same deal when I wanted the newest device, a Commodore 64 with cassette player for data storage. Wow, that should tell you my age.

Growing up I was somewhat of a book nerd, spending many hours at the local library, reading dictionaries, encyclopedias, and whatever How To and Self Help books were available, signing up for and participating in every personal and career development course or event offered. I have taken courses from basic to intermediate to masters in mental health and wellness, parenting, domestic violence, sexual abuse, trauma informed care, multiple Microsoft programs and software, home inspection, biblical and spiritual leadership and development, just to name a few.

I began my entrepreneur journey at 18, starting my own online wholesale gift store, and jumped on the MLM bandwagon for a few years as well. However, I was never a good salesperson, just loved all of the products too much, and gifted more than I sold, so I always spent more then I earned.

Over the years I have enrolled in multiple different online courses, anywhere from IRS Tax Service, to most recently Coffee Cup Counseling, in addition to earning an associates in Psychology and Christian Counseling, a bachelors degree in Psychology and am currently enrolled in my masters program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and plan to pursue a doctorate in the future.

My work experience includes more than just entrepreneurship and small businesses, as I have been a housekeeper, a tutor, a cashier, a valet parker, an assistant manager, an office manager, a job developer, a field service representative, program Director, grant writer, executive assistant, program coordinator, a multi site program developer and supervisor, and currently an administrator and case manager. The extent of projects I have been privy to create and/or be a part of range anywhere from writing a grant to establish a smoking cessation program, creating curriculum for a mentoring program, developing business plans, creating business cards to websites, among many other things.

In addition to all of the above, I will forever remain a career learner, always searching for opportunities to continue learning, developing and growing in knowledge and understanding of the systems, programs, and devices it takes for this world to operate.

Owner/Operators

Hi, we are Simon & Evelyn Chaisson.

Founders, Owner/Operators and Independent Contractors of Integrity Business Support & Solutions, LLC


Day One

We have known for quite some time that owning a small business was something we both wanted. We know we ‘will be lenders and not borrowers’. We know the Lord is faithful, but that is about all we know when it comes to entrepreneurship.

So we prayed, we fasted, and we waited…

We didn’t have a plan, we just brainstormed, tossing around different ideas of what we thought it would be, what we were willing to try, but all of our ideas were shut down before we even took the first step. So we prayed and fasted and waited…and waited some more…

Fast Forward 13 years…


Then the day finally came, but we didn’t initially know it was “The Day”.

It started with a simple phone call from some beloved friends of ours in need of a simple favor. They were traveling back home to Texas after spending a weekend brainstorming about starting their first small business. The area they were traveling in that day had very limited internet access and they needed to submit some paperwork to their attorney, but were still several hours away from their home, so naturally I, Evelyn obliged and we thought that was the end of that.

Then she called again, and of course apologized for bothering me, but had another small favor to ask. Needless to say, we spent the next few hours working together, via phone, to register their new LLC with the Secretary of State’s office, purchase their business license, apply for a Tax ID number, created a business email account, set up a business account with SBA, then handled a few important email exchanges.

The following morning I received notification that funds were on the way. I had no intentions of charging our friends for doing those favors. But when I called to let them know, they informed me that there was more to come, they needed my help with other small business legalities and wanted to honor my time and abilities by sending funds as they would normally spend for services elsewhere.

Then came the Big Ask…

How much will you charge to do ABC?? Do you know how to do XYZ?? What about LMNOP?? Can you please provide us with a list of services you can assist us with and a price list?

Then our friends said, you sure have lots of skills and abilities, you could start a business, and that is how the list of Products & Services was created.

Years of administrative, management and development experience working with the various companies and organizations instilled lots of knowledge, skills, and abilities I hadn’t even realized until it was pitched to me in a different way. Everything else just fell into place shortly after that, to where we are now!

So here we are, walking it out in obedience, following His Lead, learning, creating, and growing a small business. Stay Tuned!
