Hello and Welcome!
My name is Randi Thimesch, wife, mother, grandmother, former social worker, business owner, and now a mobile media trainer and consultant.
Perhaps it doesn’t make much sense for a former social worker to be a techie but there is a simple answer – it is the challenge of solving problems.
My family called me Lucy Van Pelt growing up because I was pretty opinionated about everything. Well, I am still opinionated and I am more passionate than ever to help others to help themselves.
I became interested in computers from my dad back in the late 80’s when computers just started becoming affordable for business owners. My dad owned his own small business and at the age of sixty, he jumped into all things technology with both feet. And he insisted I get onboard.
I did and I haven’t looked back.
Technology overall has improved our lives in so many ways, it is impossible to list. Yet so many people my age are adamant they will not embrace a Smartphone, Facebook, or learn how to text.
I can understand the reluctance to enter the world of technology, it is so overwhelming. Besides, adults are supposed to be the ones teaching young people the lessons our experience has given us. But who needs us, just Google what you need to know and there are answers galore.
Here’s the bottom line – the boomer generation need technology more than ever. Our Smartphones will be how we can keep our parents out of the nursing homes longer – heck – keep US out of the nursing homes. Apps will be able to link us to reliable medical care and diagnosis our medical problems without seeing a physician.
Many small business or shop owners are middle age and they have fallen behind in keeping up with the latest trends. Some have discovered Social Media and how it can help increase traffic and customer engagement. Others justify not using technology because they don’t want to bother or anger their customers. I just find that attitude hard to understand.
Already I am seeing Social Media becoming overcrowded and too noisy. Facebook keeps changing and making it harder and harder for individuals to stay ahead of the learning curve. The one thing for sure, Smartphones and texting is here to stay and it is time to brace these advances.
If you are a person who is a network marketer or a small business owner who is ready to learn how mobile marketing can grow your business, you are at the right place. I decipher “geek” talk and make it easier to understand. I think anyone at any age can learn new tricks so email me or better yet, just call me at 316.371.4320 to chat. I promise I am a real person and I will talk with you.
