Another APPO conference has come and gone. If you were there, I trust you left with an action plan and are busy implementing new things or tweaking things in your business from all you learned. If you weren’t able to attend this year, it’s time to start planning now so you can be in California next year!
One of the best things about networking with colleagues is that you learn new ways to do all kinds of things in your business. From small tweaks to huge changes, learning how other experts do things and incorporating them into your own workflow and systems is exciting. Instead of creating these things from scratch, one of the biggest timesavers is to use existing tools, resources and systems developed by successful people!
Some are free, some are available for purchase. Almost always, you save both time and money by investing in a well-tested tool or system. When you start to think you need to dedicate a block of your work time to research and create something new, ask yourself these 3 things:
- Is there already a tool or system I can purchase?
- Is there a colleague I can connect with and share resources? (remember sharing should be a two-way street!)
- Am I about to reinvent the wheel?
