Act software is a tool that helps take us someplace.
I’m a software teacher. My business revolves around helping people make the most of the software they use every day. That is why it is important to sometimes completely forget about software and to reflect on what is really important.
Many of the people I work with our individual act users in small businesses and they use act to run their day-to-day operations. They keep track of clients and prospects in act in an effort to keep their business sales humming along. They also deal with issues related to working with software; believe it or not, software breaks or doesn’t quite work the way we anticipated. To fix it requires our time and energy and sometimes it can be very frustrating.
Do I have to Upgrade Act?
Last week I recommended that a client spent $240 to upgrade their version of act to solve a problem. For some of my clients, $240 is a big deal and I get that because they have better things to spend their money on. Their family, their home and other business expenses. But at the end of the day spending $240 is nothing if you can get the software to take you further along in your journey to be productive.
When we have days that we are frustrated by software, such as act software, it is important to keep in mind how little it costs in comparison to what it does for us. At the end of the day, we want to go someplace and if we manage it properly, act can help us get there. Never forget that fact.
