Technology Freaks Me Out
I have been sitting with my web designer while she builds my new website. Sometimes I sincerely believe that she is speaking in a different language :) I just keep jumping up asking if I can organise a cup of tea, a snack, lunch...anything that I feel more comfortable in doing.
It's been a great process to really look at the 360 degree view of the business - from how we will receive and upload inventory for our new online store, to getting it all connected to my accounting system (Xero), and ensuring that all the terms & conditions are sorted. I have been trying so hard to keep an open mind and not tell myself "I don't get it".
You see I do actually get it - all of it. It's the idea of having to use the tech based systems that I have chosen that is NOW starting to freak me out. I just get used to one new area of the business and then there is another that pops up shouting "Laice! Check me out! I am SUPER intimidating :)".
So tomorrow I am going to organise new product images, new videos to showcase the awesome Klipee revolution and may just take a stroll on the beach. I will be sure to repeat "I've got this. I've got this. I've got this".
Cause you know what? I think I just might have this...
PS - yes I really do love emoji's ha ha

So my day today is starting off with the usual focus of getting kids sorted and to school, finding and holding coffee like its my dearest friend and getting the house in order after another evening of normal family activity.
So my friend that assisted me in building the website and I, are currently trying to do the final "connect up" of our online store - with the domain name and all other sales channels. Silly me. The organisation that I purchased the domain name through is not the easiest to link up. It's asking us about A records and CNAMES. Really? I thought that was a really bad swear word, they want us to type that in? It gave us a good laugh at a time when we really needed it :)
I never would have thought of myself as a resilient person...until now. Don't get me wrong, I still freak out and react more than I would like to at the hurdles that come my way. I now just kind of expect things to go awry - I know, I can hear my friends saying "stop with the negative thoughts!". I just think of it as managing my own expectations...
