  • Strive to make technology an ally not an opponent

    I tend to hang onto my cell phones long past the point where I can turn them in for new ones.  I suppose because I use them for function rather than style.  

    My Blackberry phone (with all my calendar appointments) died the weekend before last.  I was lucky to be able to obtain a loaner until I decided on my new phone (I chose an IPhone).  During that period with the loaner I was considering a number of options.  Do I go back to a day planner for appointments?  That's a bit cumbersome as I will take a phone call seeking an appointment while having food at a restaurant or even while I am bicycling through different points of San Antonio.  Do I begin using a palm style device for entering appointments?

    I decided on again making technology an ally by selecting a phone which can offer appointment setting within its applications.

    I must admit other than making my Wife the first person I phoned, the second thing I did was open up the Youtube application to listen to some songs.  The trick for me now is to make the phone yield a multiple on my investment. I need to harness the full power of the phone (and it's various app's) to create a technological advantage for my business.

    If you don't utilize technology at your disposal then you run the risk of having your competitors use it as a weapon against you.

    I am a CPA in San Antonio and provide bookkeeping, payroll, taxes and more.  We offer a free initial visit and look forward to serving your business needs.
