Colin Browning – Technologically Generous

Quick-Show Notes:

In this episode of The Millionaire’s Lawyer, JP and Colin Browning discuss:

Backing things up on to a USB every so often is a great idea

Major technological failings in corporations are:

  • Have never invested in anything technological
  • Are unaware of who has access to what digital asset
  • Understanding what a back up is, and how important they are
  • Having a technology Disaster Recovery plan should be essential to every company.

Monstrous task to get everything back if you don’t have things backed up; with a chance of losing everything.

Threats are not as imminent as the marketing makes you feel; you’re not that interesting to hackers yet.

Hackers are generally going for resources

Best advice for preventative measures:
  • Be as secure as you can afford
  • Invest in user training
  • Online password managers

“Hijacked” – Actively locked down
  • Make sure you have adequate documentation
  • Modern Firewall
    • Modern viruses are not fight-able, have a back up so that if you get any you can reset everything and back up.
Future of tech businesses post COVID-19
  • A lot of people will have learned more about technology and how to use it
  • People will realise that AI will one day be able to replace their job
  • Quite far ahead
  • Giving power over to AI would allow us to do more of what we want
  • “AI Collective”
  • More good is created then negative

Kids and tech is like gambling

The Internet here in Canada sucks due to us being the second-largest landmass.

Principals to Launch a Business:
  1. Persistence
  2. Know what you are good at
  3. Don’t go big, borrow if you don’t have to, or lose sight of your goal
  4. Take a step back if needed
Learning lessons for past failures:
  • Hire out people who are better than you at your weaknesses
  • Communicate to your peers
  • Reflect on both the positive and the negative; it will allow you to grow and develop both as a person and a business owner

Learn to relax

Cut out the negative

Personal development is huge

Be aware of where things are coming from –  a positive or negative source

80/20 Rule

80% noisy clients, take up a lot of your time, 20% quite customers that can at least make your baseline

Be persistent

Do the obvious

Hire out

Find time for yourself.
