I had an ulterior motive for starting my business.
Ilios Digital Organizing was first conceived because organizing is my passion. I organized toy rooms when I babysat, the books when I worked at the bookstore, and even the gift cards when I wait in line at Target.
I’ve been blessed to be able to start a business doing what I love. There’s just something satisfying about helping someone put their digital world in order so they can live an easier, more productive life.
But I have a hidden agenda.
A secret reason why I do what I do.
I love to see people’s confidence around tech increase.
Tech can be scary. You know how it feels. Something isn’t working with your tech and maybe there is a solution but you can’t find it online. Or you do find a solution but aren’t really sure you should be pushing those buttons
What if you crash your computer?
Yeah, that feeling.
My clients feel that anxiety too, and it’s part of my job to help ease it. It’s why I’m not afraid to search Google in front of them. Or try something different to solve a new problem. Or admit that no, I’ve never seen that before but, hey, let’s try to figure out an answer.
I make my clients ‘drive’ the mouse when we’re working on their computers. Not because I’m lazy, but because I want them to experience how to troubleshoot while still having a safety net. It builds their belief that yes, they can do this
Nobody voluntarily says ‘Hey, April, I feel more confident around tech now, thanks.’ but when I mentioned my hidden agenda to a former client she paused, thought for a moment, then nodded and said, ‘you know, I do feel more confident when I’m working with my computer than I used to.’
And that feeling is one of the reasons I do what I do
But how about you
How confident do you feel when it comes to managing your tech
Would you like to be more self-assured when you’re working on your computer? More courageous when it comes time to troubleshoot? Give me a call and let’s talk about how to make that feeling happen.
