Can embracing technology improve your quality of life?
I don't know about you, but I could not imagine the chaos my life would be in if I didn't have my emails come to my phone, my voicemails converted to text and my calendars synced across all my devices.
In the early 2000's, we were just beginning to grasp the possibilities of the internet. Today, technology is so intertwined within our lives that we wouldn't be able to live without it. And it's still changing. From the cloud, to big data, to A.I. and now blockchain. There are so many exciting possibilities for the future!
Embracing technology is the best thing I have ever done. I never thought I would be able to manage a successful business, while travelling, spending time with my family and anything else life throws at me. It just works.
Imagine you’re about to head into a meeting with a bunch of investors who are interested in dumping cash into your new start-up. You walk into the meeting ready to talk about the company, its products and how it will help solve a lot of problems for people in the e-commerce industry. The investors are really excited after your presentation but have some questions about the financial statements. You’re the tech guy, you barely made it through Accounting 101!
You tell them that you will need to set up another meeting with them to explain the numbers after you discuss them with your accountant. You call your accountant and are able set up an appointment to meet at their office for the following month.
Believe it or not, this situation happens more often than it should. The conventional accountant will set up an appointment for a specific time and location. Sometimes, life happens and you’re not able to make it on time and have to cancel.
You’re modern day accountant? She’s virtual and just a couple clicks away.
You can invite her into the conversation with the investors and she’s on a video call, excited to explain the numbers and how it all comes together. No need for a second meeting. The deal is sealed and you’re ready to take the next big step.
