Grey Matters, with Steve Dotto
Leaning into your Strengths - GM29

Leaning into your Strengths - GM29

February 26, 2020
 
We have all been in business long enough to know that we are good at some things and not good at others. But there seems to be a “badge of honor” amongst entrepreneurs that we do it all ourselves.
While that might salve the ego, in practice it is a bad idea!
 
I know that one of my challenges is shared by many entrepreneurs, a reluctance to delegate tasks that can easily be accomplished by others.
This may be one of the biggest roadblocks to success.
Adding outsourced talent to your team, in the form of Virtual Assistants, or contractors will free the principal up to do the things that only they can do, if they actually let go of some control.
 
Trusting team members to take tasks off your plate will make a marked difference in not just your profitability, but your energy. 
 
Here are a few resources we mentioned in this Podcast:
 
RescueTime - This is my video on using RescueTime, which will monitor your activities and help you identify area you can outsource support.
 
VA Services
I have never hired from a service so I can't vouch for which ones are best.
However, I know Chris Drucker, who runs Virtual Staff Finder and have learned a lot from him. Virtual Staff Finder specializes in Lower-priced overseas VAs from the Philippines. 
 
 
I also have spent time with Travinia Barber, the founder of PriorityVA which is  a premium service, offering North American VAs at a higher cost.
 
I think they are both great places to start your search.

Baby Boomers should feel comfortable with LinkedIn as a Social Network. It fits our needs in ways no other network does.
The person I turn to for all things LinkedIn is without question, Viveka Von Rosen. She is the author of LinkedIn Marketing: An Hour a Day

We need to respect all the different social platforms even if we do not choose to use them ourselves.
And speaking of social Platforms, please join us in the Grey Zone on Facebook
Don’t be a stranger!
 
What was your first social network? As I mentioned mine was the BBS world, in fact it was Sunshine BBS, run by a friend on mine in Delta BC, he had 2 lines going in he ran it for years!
 
Here is a link to the Wikipedia page on the history of social networks, it is a fun walk down memory lane!

Podcast Reboot - GM26

February 5, 2020
After far too long a hiatus, yes, let’s call this a hiatus, we are back.
Grey Matters is more committed than ever to serving the Grey Zone, Baby Boomers and Gen Xers who are looking to reinvent themselves in order to remain relevant in the Digital World.

CNN posted a great debate between a Boomer and a Millennial:
 
"OK Boomer" started on the platform Tik Tok and exploded into the meme of the moment. Turns out young people trying to launch into a gig economy with little job security on a rapidly warming planet, with far less opportunity for the wealth and creature comforts that their parents and grandparents enjoyed (A car? A house? Ha!) don't want to be lectured by Baby Boomers, the generation who put them into this kind of shape.
 
 
 
From The Globe and Mail
 
Older, longer: The super-aging of Canadians has taken everyone by surprise
 
"When the pensions and public health-care systems that Canadians rely on today were first put in place in the 1960s, the life expectancy of a man was 69 years, just four years after he was likely to retire. But a man who turns 65 today will live, on average, another 19 years, and a woman will live another 22 years, according to Statistics Canada.”
