Technology and The Entrepreneur: a classic drama about Frenemies in the 21st century. While relying on devices helps keep us on-task and in-touch, it also has the power to turn a digital user into a digital abuser.
So today we’re going to ditch all the drama with my surprisingly simple small business slice. Less than two minutes will help you focus on how to use technology—without getting used by it.
Entrepreneurs share a strong camaraderie—a sort of unspoken solidarity within the small business community. But the commonplace phrase “pick your brain” can transform connecting into begging.
And since entrepreneurial etiquette can be a bit confusing, my small business slice clears up the code of conduct for networking with one another. Just a simple lesson in minding your mingling manners.
Entrepreneurs are big believers in the elusive white unicorn: that self-motivated employee that can tackle each task perfectly with minimal training or questions. But self-motivation isn’t magical–it’s mythical, and deceivingly unreliable.
That’s why my small business slice helps you owners focus your energy on practical ways to motivate your employees. And you don’t even need a magic wand.
