For some, technology can be a touchy subject. While there are those who fully embrace it, there are also those who choose to stick to the traditional methods that have brought them success in the past. Similar to how there are different species of animals, or different models of cars, we think that there are different kinds of people when it comes to their acceptance of new technology.

Everyone knows this person. They are the ones who are always up to date and current on what is happening in the world of technology and can tell you anything you need to know about devices, apps, or new products. They are the first one in line when something new and innovative is coming out and the ones who laugh at you when one week has passed and you haven’t downloaded the newest software for your device.
While you wouldn’t exactly call them a tech wizard, “The In-Betweener” is always open minded and willing to learn something new. While they are comfortable doing what has always worked well for them, they can be pushed to step outside of the box and embrace new things as they become available. When it comes to technology, this is the person who is bridging the gap between new and old!
The Oldy, But Goody:
Can you name someone in your life who refuses to accept new technology? This is the person who has found something that works, and refuses to try something new. No matter how easy their live can become by embracing change, they remain stuck doing the same things they have always found success doing. After all, if it isn’t broken, why fix it?
Which one of these people best represents you? The fact is, no matter how much you may not want to accept it, change is coming. In an industry where the competition is fierce, if you don’t start embracing the changes that are coming, your clients will start looking for someone who does. It is no longer about what is easiest for you, but more about what is easiest and most convenient for your clients.
