Eliminate Risk and Gain Rewards Using Technology: How Savvy Successful Small Businesses Operate with Laura Leist (CEU Qualifying)
Description: Whether just starting your business or you're a veteran, there is no getting around using technology in your business. Technology can be scary if you don't know what your options are and how to make it all work together. Regardless if you choose to work in this niche area or not with your clients, you need to know how and what technology to use to run a successful business.
You will learn "why" to use them and determine which ones are needed for your business.
Using client examples (some are your fellow PO colleagues who will remain nameless) you will relate to these all too common problems, but now you will have the knowledge to implement the solutions.
Eliminate Chaos employs 9 productivity and organization consultants who are united in their belief that everyone can have “More Time for Life®” if they just get organized first.
Laura’s education and over two decades of experience in computer information systems and technology and the rare ability to clearly explain how to make the most of technology in a non-geek-speak way offer Eliminate Chaos clients much to cheer about.
