Featured Club Member:
A new featured to The Tech Byte blog is introducing you to our fabulous Club Members. Yolanda Lowe is our first featured member and we are so privileged to have her as one of the smart real estate agents in our club sharing and embracing technology in her practice of selling homes on the CT Shoreline.
We asked Yolanda some questions:
Q: Where do you enjoy your morning coffee?
A: At home after my morning walk during my spiritual routine.
Q: Where do you file transaction documents?
A: I use Dropbox and Evernote, this is a work in progress. My goal for 2014 is to master one that I can proficiently use for my business.
Q: Please introduce us to your Tech Devices.
A: iPhone, 2 Tablets (One I won from The Tech Byte for proudly referring a friend), 2 Laptops, 1 Camera (I use my husband’s Nikon, but for the most part I use my iPhone)
My latest challenge is to learn Windows 8 after replacing a laptop that crashed.
Q: Do you have any advice for newbies on where to start with technology?
A: Join The Tech Byte Club – For me it was the best money spent in 2012, I am so ever thankful to Linda Davis for introducing me to The Tech Byte, I have met many talented people and learned much. My best lesson for 2013 has been listen to the calls and prioritize my list of areas I want to master. I am proud to say that I have completed my business page: “Simply CT Shoreline”. Another good lesson has been to Google my name and update all my info on the Social Media Sites – This I must say is time consuming, but very valuable.
Q: When did you last belly laugh and why?
A: Christmas Eve with my family, we don’t exchange gifts, but we bring a grab bag item, the kids participate as well, it is so much fun watching the kids when they need to give up the gift they just won. This is teaching them how to share at the same time.
Q: If we got to shadow you for a day what would we see that would make us smile?
A: I am not sure you would smile as I get up at 5:30 to meet my 2 friends for our morning walk, when you see the most beautiful sunrise, that will make you smile, and of course our company. When I get home from my walk, my loving husband will greet me with a smoothie, and if you are shadowing me, he would make you one too, to start the day healthy. We will enjoy that with Bella, my dog on our lap while reading our spiritual of choice. After our smoothie we get a cup of coffee served by my husband. I am working on mastering my leading generation in the morning (my goal for 2014 make this perfect). The rest of the day I attend meetings, meet clients or friends for lunch.
Q: What song is most played right now on your list?
A: Believe in Yourself by Michelle Cox
Q: What is the last app you downloaded?
A: Tripit – great way to keep track of travelling info such as flight and agenda
