(Lisa Nichols AKA Mrs N)
Well, the world has certainly changed a bit since I was at school!
As I look back on all the modern technology I had to master over the years, it’s no wonder I became an online business manager.
There are so many BSO’s that come out every week.
(BSO: Bright, shiny objects)
I remember learning shorthand-typing at college and being mortified to discover it was “so last year” at my first job interview. My junior secretarial role required audio-typists to transcribe the solicitors’ dictation tapes. (Rewind: left pedal/Play: right pedal).
I was a tech nerd in the eighties … I bet most of you don’t even recognise half of these images?
As I moved out of secretarial work and into marketing, the era of the personal computer dawned and we all did our own clerical tasks.
When I left work to have our children I chaired the local branch of a national parenting charity and one of the bright, young things asked if we could have a Facebook presence, I remember thinking “isn’t that just for college kids?” Suddenly it was 2am and I was hooked on online marketing.
As my babies became teens, I had a front row seat to all the new social media platforms and moved into online business support.
It’s not that I am a guru – but I have continued to keep pressing the buttons until it works! If you’d like to save a few years and find out which buttons they might be, you’re in the right place.
