Is it possible to find a business advisor and a technology advisor in one person? Absolutely. Today I'm talking about how to dominate and innovate in your business, and using technology to do that. I'm Cole Smith, and this is Dollars and Data.
I've been in the business of technology for 30 years. In that time, I’ve learned a thing or two. The right way to think about engaging advisors is to see it as an opportunity to grow your business. You're wanting to sit down with the right business and technology advisor and say, "Here's where I am, this is what I'm doing, and this is where I want to go."
The right person is key though, and with that, you can deal with accounting systems, and shipping, and look at any existing pain points in your business. Even cyber security – how your staff are checking their email – is something that you, as a business owner, need to consider carefully.
Does the right business and technology advisor see your vision and have the expertise of where you want to go? Let's unpack some of these issues so we can futureproof your business and get you on track with technology, your business, and the right advice.
