Here’s the low-down on ways to become more aware of ways that you can automate your business (yup, you – no matter what kind or size of businesses).

TekGrl Quick Tips
- Track your time – you may not be the great guardian of your time you believe yourself to be!
- No Manual Entry (import, export, use your phone, scan) – this is a legit rule you need to start observing. There is rarely EVER an occasion when you should be inputting data by hand if it exists somewhere else.
- Once you see an opportunity, ask for recommendations – Ask your colleagues, friends or I’ve been known to have a suggestion or opinion.
- Ask yourself if procrastination is an opportunity for automation? (Think about what you’re putting off because you don’t want to/don’t like to do it. Is that something you could be automating?)
