#38 The Clarity Sessions Podcast - Escape Tech Overwhelm

Is technology overwhelm holding you back from sharing your message online? In my coaching practice, the number one question I get is: "What technology should I use?"

People everywhere are overwhelmed by technology and how to use it well in their business to benefit them rather than letting it walk all over them. I just want to tell you that it is normal to feel bad about technology. Technology overwhelm is real. Whatever context I'm in - from Hope Writers to my personal social media, to conferences I attend, or webinars I host - I often hear people saying, "Technology overwhelm is holding me back from sharing my message online and from making an impact and an income online."

Tech overwhelm is real, there's no point in denying it. But I want you to know that you can overcome it. So here are 3 tips to help you do just that...

1. Change Your Mindset

Over at Hope*Writers, we've adopted a mindset that we learned from Marie Forleo. The basic gist of it is this: "Everything is figureoutable." You can figure it out! Other people have figured it out and you can follow in their steps. You can go watch a bunch of YouTube tutorials, and you can work through it step-by-step and figure it out.

But it requires a mindset shift. You have to stop saying, "I'm not a technology person" and instead commit to figuring it out. It's possible. You just have to decide that you are not going to let overwhelm get you down... that you are going to move forward.

 

2. Choose the Right Tools

My favorite tool is Kajabi. I think it's the easiest one to use, but it also does everything that you need such as your website, email, landing pages, checkout process, funnel builder and more! It's my go-to "all in one" tool. 

I highly recommend it, because it's both incredibly user-friendly (so there's only a small learning curve when you start out) and it does everything so you don't have to learn more than one system. That in itself reduces overwhelm!

3. Know When to Outsource 

For a long time, I insisted on doing everything myself. But recently, I realized that a lot of times, that's unnecessary. 

For example, recently we got a new TV for our house and I said, "You know what? I'm not going to touch it. I'm not going to hang it up. I'm not going to plug it in. I'm not going to do the electrical stuff that needs to be done. I'm not going to touch it at all. I'm going to outsource that to somebody who hangs TVs for a living. They actually know what they're doing."

And the older I get, the more I realize when I focus on my zone of genius, I allow other people to do what they're really good at. If I have a leak in my home, I'm not going to hop on the roof. I'm going to call somebody who knows how to hop on the roof and fix the problem.

So if you're stuck with technology overwhelm:

1. Know that you can figure it out.

2. Use the right tool.

3. If you get stuck, ask for help.
