Where have all the humans gone?

It is interesting, don’t you think?  Amazon has launched their Amazon Go – store of the future, where checkout is no longer required.  Artificial Intelligence Smart Assistants such as Google Home, and Amazon Echo are entering homes on a daily basis, and it is predicted that soon, owning a smart assistant will not be a choice.  Are we truly entering the “Jetson” era, where our world and daily lives, are ran by machines?

What does this mean for the business world?  I believe everything  in moderation,  yes, even wine. 🙂   It is true that a small business trying to compete with conglomerates such as Amazon or Google, will find this new technology more than challenging.  On the other hand having a smart assistant help you manage tasks such as email, phone calls, and scheduling of appointments, might actually help lighten your load. 

There must be room for both.  Surely the pendulum will swing back towards the middle where we find value in a human face, and a personal connection.  The first impression you, and your business offers, will make the difference between treading these waters, or sinking beneath it all.  

This human is happy to help you, anyway I can.

Is It Time?

I came across this article, and I couldn’t have written it better myself, so I won’t.  🙂  If you are feeling overwhelmed with the minute, daily tasks of your business, it may be time to hand them off to an assistant, but who, and how? 

As the article mentions to hire an administrative assistant you should be willing to commit to training someone, with pay, for 60 days.  If you feel that is too much of a commitment, than a Virtual Assistant (VA) may be the answer for you.  Support when you need it, and no expense when you feel you no longer need the help.  Give this article a quick read, and if a VA might be the answer for you, let’s chat.
