Challenge ~ Discover Your Tech Toolkit

Do You Want to be Tech Confident?

Do you know which apps you own and what you are using them for?

Are you paying for any you are no longer using? and they are just forgotten in your Applications (Mac) or Programs (Windows) folder?

Then this Challenge is right for you!

Knowing where you are now with your tech allows you to be more aware of your current resources and their features so you know if you really, really need that next “Shiny Object”. You know the one you absolutely MUST HAVE to run your business!

We’ve all been there and I too have quite a few “Shiny Objects” I found were not serving me in my creative workflow.  Which is how I created this challenge for you.

Understand your starting point

Get started with my templates.  They are pre-populated with many popular applications and online software most of you will be aware of.  If not, this templates are flexible enough for you to add your own quickly and easily.

5 Day Challenge

Kylie iPad CoffeeHey there, I’m Kylie. 

I’ve been involved with tech for over 30 years now either learning myself, or implementing for small business & large corporates and teaching users how to use that tech.

Over the years I’ve been very successful at implementing and teaching others how to use various applications and software and was often head hunted as a consultant in The United Kingdom, The Republic of Ireland, New Zealand and my home country of Australia.  In fact, I was able to spend 20 years travelling and living where ever I wanted because of my skill and experience.

Being in demand for your knowledge and creativity is AWESOME!

The frustrating part is not having the confidence to understand how to use that next “Shiny Object” you’ve been told you MUST BUY NOW to do that thing you really need to do.  I get it, I’ve been there and bought way too many shiny things and found I wasted my money because a less expensive option, or even free, was just as good for me in my business at that time.

So let me teach you from my experience and mis-steps over the years to get your started with a Creative Tech Toolkit that serves you!

A Toolkit Audit is the process of identifying all the applications you currently have installed on your device(s) and those you utilise via a web browser (ie, applications you don’t have downloaded and installed on your device but you only from an internet or web browser).

You will create a complete list of everything available to you now so you can make informed decisions about your next steps.  The end result is to understand what you own and what it can be used for, as it is very easy to purchase that next ‘shiny thing’ only to find you have something that does the exact same function already.

Don’t be daunted by this step.  I’ll provide you with quite a comprehensive template with a lot of the more popular apps, and the ones I use or have used ready for you to pre-populate your version of the template if you have those apps too.  So you aren’t starting from a zero starting point.  A lot of the work has been done for you.

This challenge is about knowing your starting point so you can decide what you include in your Creative Tech Toolkit and How to use it in your creative workflow.

The task for Day 3 is to review the items you have listed in the Toolkit Audit and update them for which you:

  • have paid for
  • are still paying for
  • or where they free?

For those you paid for, if possible, let’s also add who you bought it from and how much you paid for it.

This is an especially important task for the applications and online software you are still paying for.  Do you know how much your are paying each month and year for your apps?  If you do awesome, and if you don’t you may be in for a shock.  But don’t worry, our next daily challenge is to learn what we use these apps for and if there is scope to streamline any of them. ie, get rid of any doing the same job as another.

The task for Day 4 is to now go through your apps and list all their features so you can review and see if you have multiple apps which are capable of the same tasks and features.  This gives you a holistic view of your app list and you’ll be ready to make decisions.  The point is to understand which apps are serving you and which you may have doubled or tripled up on in functionality.  Plus this is a great step for finding any gaps in your processes too.

I won’t leave you alone in any of this and the template you start with has a lot of the populate apps already laid out and listed with this information.   Now, I can’t know every app out there, so there will likely be some gaps for you to fill in.  We’ll get this actioned together.

OK, now that you have all the information, about your setup and what’s available to you, it’s time to look at what do you need!

With your list of apps and online software, it’s time to organise them into how you use them.  ie, what are the steps you use to write that book, or create your blog posts, or create course content for your next online course, or even if you sell a physical product or provide a service.  Whatever types of items you create in your business will require a combination of tech.  This tech and the order/how you use it is your Tech Toolkit.  Let’s get you started with the best possible way of organising your tech.
