How not to look silly to the I.T guy

Date: January 2018




UH oh, you start sweating, your knees feel like silly putty, anxiety goes up, you have to call someone to fix it and you start babbling on like a five-year-old – before you even know who to call! Or you can handle this you know how to fix it, you are confident you know what it is and you can tell the IT people exactly what's wrong….. except you don’t want to make it worse…?

First things first – DO NOT WORRY… DO NOT PANIC… KEEP CALM.. AND DO NOT THINK YOU ARE GOING TO BE SILLY.


Technology is always changing and is hard to keep up, even within the industry so how do you!? We are on the cusp of alternative realities and the dawn of the leisure revolution. Data is the currency of the digital age and panic may arise if things are not working or you lose access or worse lose data!


We all have our specialities other wise we all would be good at everything (that was my nickname at school – but that’s another story) and the I.T. guy or girl is no different. Their intention should be to solve the problem – not to make you feel idiotic. You could bamboozle them with your expert knowledge in whatever you do, so DON’T PANIC, ITS NOT YOUR FAULT, LETS JUST FIX THE PROBLEM.


If you do not feel safe, do not have fun or trust your current I.T. partner, it may be worth considering to look at other alternatives. I.T. is an important and integral part of your business – make sure the people helping you as your I.T. department see it that way too!

Your day is off to a great start, made some sales, got some items off your to do list and haven’t added any more on and then ….. the network is down, you computer stops running, you have some characters on the screen that you have never seen before. Did you hit the wrong button, did you look the wrong way, did you scowl and moan and the I.T.

pixies are having fun with you?
