I accidentally pressed ‘delete all’ in an email folder.
Oh well, half an hour later I’ve managed to retrieve most of the emails, but that was time I really needed to keep building my online entrepreneur business.
This reminded me how reliant we are on the tech that sourrounds us.
Is your business resilient?
Can you contact your friends without Facebook?
An hour after I retrieved my almost lost emails…I received a new email telling me an online forum I use is changing it’s policies.
(Not Facebook…this time.)
However…what if…have you thought about it?
I share my written work within a blog sharing website where I have about 100 followers. Sadly they haven’t shared their direct email with me so I’ve only got that one route into their world.
I’ve managed to find some of them on other social media, but it’s not always easy because of name changes and just simply finding folks in the mass of people online.
As the website is changing direction I will probably lose all those friends and contacts, it will no longer be a place where I can share my work. More importantly it’s a loss of 100 people who give me feedback and help me keep on track.
I feel I’ve lost an opportunity to share good things with them.
I sat back, had a cup of tea (OK you guessed it I’m British) and accepted it’s pointless getting frustrated.
Anger is a waste of energy.
You can’t control the mass of information and forums on the internet.
You just can’t!
What do you do to avoid being in this mess?
