De-Stressing Your Work with a CRM

What is your best method of reducing stress at work? Let's take homicide off the table (chuckle). I’m serious. What do you do?

Hi folks. Steve Hammond here from HorselessRanch.com.

When I talk to folks about stress the two main stresses are seeing too much to do. We’ve talked about that one before. The other is allowing too much memory to be used in tracking work. Another way to say this is having a poor workflow management system.

Trying to remember what needs to be done, by what deadline, and what meetings have to be attended adds a great deal of stress to our workload.

Although pen and paper still work for some, the plethora of apps and programs attempting to tame this tiger has made the electronic approach more attractive.

The app store is filled with different approaches. No one is going to be the best for everyone, but there should be one that works well enough with your calendar.

If you haven’t already done so, I’m going to suggest you look into a Contact Relationship Manager (CRM). The more well-known ones are probably too large, bulky, and complicated for the beginner – especially the solopreneur.

There exists more than a dozen or so CRMs that are small enough and inexpensive enough to allow beginners a path into that world. A CRM allows the input of contact information. If doing business with a contact, you can input a “deal” which will keep track of all your emails, phone calls, and meetings with that person. Tasks can be added with “get back to” dates to remind you of what you need to do.

If you need help putting your toes in this water, why not reach out to me. Go to my website, HorselessRanch.com, and schedule a free consultation.

If you need a speaker for your next virtual or live event, shoot me an email or call me. I’ll be happy to help.

Well, that’s it for today.
