Technically Challenged

Happy Monday!!!  Yes, I am one of those crazy people that actually LIKE Mondays.  For me, it is the kick off to a new week with a new list of tasks to accomplish.

Over the last several weeks, I have found myself identifying as “technically challenged”.  Lately, it is more the case then ever.  With the start of the new year, many of my Thirty One sisters have been sharing things that help them in their business.  YIKES!  Technology plays a big part for many of them.

Now, I am old school – pen, paper, planner, etc.  I do have the calendar on my phone and computer synched together but they only work if you add the information to them.  I usually find that I have put an appointment on my phone but not in my planner or vice versa.  The end result – I need to have both in front of me to get any work done.

This week, I want to share with you some apps and tips that I have learned that may help you in your business.  For those of you who are tech savvy this may seem VERY basic.  I believe that there are a lot more technically challenged people out there and they are just a little embarrassed to admit it.

The first app/program that I have semi-conquered is pic monkey.  This is SOOO user friendly.  It is a great program to make flyers, Facebook covers, collages, etc.  I used it to make my Superbowl Ladies Party flyer:

I will admit, it took me a little while and it may not be perfect BUT I did it!  Thank you Tina for allowing me to copy your idea.  If I can do it, so can you.  I haven’t gotten the Facebook cover thing down but I will keep at it until I have the sizing right.

The next one should have been a no-brainer for me… Google docs and Google drive.  UGH! If you have a gmail account, you have access to BOTH of these apps.  I had NEVER used them.  Thank you Melissa Fietsam for sharing this with us.  I did my Birthday survey with google docs.  It was so EASY.  If you haven’t filled out the survey, please click the link so that I can CELEBRATE you during your special month.  Then I save all of my standard letters and forms to Google drive.  I was super excited when I was able to pull the information up on my phone.  I could then copy and paste the information into an email or into a Facebook message.  It is the little things that get me excited and make me a……

happy camper

Like I said, I am technically challenged but willing to learn.  If you haven’t used either of these, give them a try.  We will conquer this technology thing together.

Have  a ThirtyOne-derful day!
