I love technology, I love to learn, and I’m capable of learning complicated things. This is a gift and a curse. In business you cannot do everything yourself. I know I can set up my blog and my website, but I don’t know where to start and with what tools. When I don’t know I start by asking. What I found is that I can do everything myself but I still don’t have the time.
I got some great tips and this blog initiated while chatting to Gavin Steiner of PodCan Network (www.podcan.net). Being connected to the business people in your community is a great way to get support with your business. What I found is that I wanted to design my website in WordPress and I chose Gavin to do this. How sharing a little time and knowledge has given him a client and given me clarity and direction, plus the help I needed to do this without having to learn everything.
Reach out to your business community, do one-to-one meetings, belong to local networking groups like Rotary, the chamber of Commerce, Board of Trade, or more focused groups like BNI. Being connected is one of the best ways to get the information and the support you need, when you need it, to help make your business successful.
