It’s no secret the world is moving faster than ever before. To achieve success, business people must be willing to explore new technologies, or their business stands in jeopardy of dissolving or being disrupted. The use of technology as well as the implementation of evolving processes is imperative in business, and if not incorporated strategically, the business won’t thrive. How can you discover what is available and what strategies will move the needle in your business?
A new book is on the horizon. Tech Magic: How to Launch, Grow and Scale Your Business Leveraging Technology is a collaborative book featuring business women from around the world, sharing their secrets about the technology they utilize to grow their businesses. Tech Magic is the second in the new book series, A Message in a Bottle, by Lisa Charlene Williams, founder of Smart Hustle Agency & Publishing. Inspired by the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Williams created A Message in a Bottle with the expectation that it will become the modern and savvy go-to inspirational resource for people of all walks of life.
Tech Magic arrives right on time. Women entrepreneurs are the fastest-growing group of business owners in the American economy, according to the 2018 American Express Open Report. Although they are the fastest-growing group, there are many common challenges female entrepreneurs face that range from delegation to not having access to the resources they need to scale. According to Forbes, “Ninety percent of female-owned businesses are a one-woman show.”
One of the most talked about areas of struggle is not having access to mentors. “Forty-eight percent of female founders report that a lack of available advisors and mentors limits their professional growth” (Inc.com).
All A Message in a Bottle books are collaborative books that feature a lead author and other professionals that are contributors in a chapter. Carol Dunlop, CCO of the CSI Corporation, is leading the charge as lead author for this business resource for women. Tech Magic steps up to the plate by bringing together an all-star cast of female entrepreneurs, CEOs, and founders sharing valuable nuggets, tips, and resources to fill the gap and pull back the curtain on how thriving women entrepreneurs are achieving success. So, the book will serve as a virtual mentor to help with running a business more efficiently.
“Tech Magic will provide knowledge and wisdom for a woman who is just getting started, and to a woman who is earning high six figures,” Dunlop says of who the book is designed to help. “Because technology is evolving so quickly, this book is a great, quick read for a woman at any stage of her business.”
“The book will provide the information women entrepreneurs need to know about what technologies are available and will provide the cliff notes on how to leverage the technologies to move the needle in your business. From leveraging LinkedIn in unique ways, to implementing automation platforms many have never heard of. Many women don’t know who to go to for this information.”
Book publisher Lisa Charlene Williams said, “It is still a challenge for women to find and glean from successful female mentors and models to learn shortcuts and secrets to running successful and profitable businesses. Because many of these women are very busy, a book and resource like this is being made available to women.”
Why the focus on technology? Williams says, “Technology has important effects on business operations, can reduce stress and anxiety, which is very important, especially for women who might have dual roles as business owner and a mother/wife with limited time. Utilizing technology has so many benefits and our goal is to help more women win in their life and business so they can make more money, operate more efficiently, and produce the results they desire … and of course, as our tagline says, accomplish this: Without Working Themselves to Death!”
Whether you need exposure on how to leverage some new technologies or you want the cliff notes to learn how other successful female entrepreneurs are utilizing technology platforms to grow their businesses, Tech Magic has the information to help women from start to scale achieve success in their business, as the contributors share their maiden magic.
