Technology Helps You Put the World in Your Hands

It is terrific to know that technology can help you be independent by putting a world of information in your hands. I am old enough to remember when computers were big heavy things that got put on a desk and never moved. Over the years I have seen them evolve into laptops,  notebooks, tablets, PDAs and now Smartphones. One thing that has stood out for me with the evolving computer technology arena is that things are getting smaller and more powerful all the time. Today, technology allows us to have the world in our hands at all times and that is a wonderful thing.

Tablets make it easy to store, save and view information of all sorts. I like tablets that can connect to the internet with ease because of the larger screen size and ease of portability. Technology enables us to be free from wires, papers and our desks.  Recently I was shopping and forgot the ingredients I needed for a recipe. It was not a big deal. I was able to pull out my Smartphone, look up the recipe in seconds and get the items I needed while at the market.  Think about how many times you have been traveling from one place to another and pulled out your Smartphone and used it as a GPS device and gotten to your destination on time and safely?

Technology Can Help You Be Independent – Get Technological on the Go

It is terrific to learn that technology can help you be independent, so get technical on the go.  The world of work and where work takes place has evolved a great deal over the past ten years. It is becoming more common for entrepreneurs to telecommute and to meet with clients and prospects virtually instead of in person. It is the incredible technology that is making this possible. Entrepreneurs will be well served to embrace the new technological advances that enable them to work with ease on the go, rather than being tethered to a desk, power cord or office space. An investment in a tablet PC, Smartphone and cloud based storage can help an entrepreneur get out of the office and into the world.

 

 

 

 

Once upon a time, it was common to see entrepreneurs stop at a local coffee-house, pull out a huge laptop computer and work while sipping on cups of coffee.

When It Comes to Technology Be A Belt And Suspenders Girl

It is wonderful to use your technology to keep all your information easily accessible even in the event of a disaster. Recently I was speaking with a woman who was upset because she lost all her contacts and photographs when she lost her smart phone. I felt sorry for her and reminded myself I must continue to duplicate my data. Once upon a time, we stored all our information on paper. We had originals that we saved in safe and secure storage spaces. We kept copies for regular use and review. Everyone understood the importance of having an heir and a spare. In other words people understood that there should always be a backup copy. My husband likes to call the idea wearing a belt and suspenders. In all you do with your data, you must have a backup and a backup for that backup.
