According to research...

  • Approximately 50% of adults want to lose weight in 2021 by changing their diets and exercising. 

  • In 2019, approximately one-third of Americans cut their spending.

  • On average, 28% of people donate their used clothing.

People everywhere are attempting to trim the fat in their lives, from literal fat cells to excess spending and unwanted goods.

Billboards, commercials, credit card bills, and the bathroom mirror are constantly reminding us to do so and so, it remains front of mind.

You know what area of your business could likely use a lot of fat trimming but is often overlooked by business owners because reminders are not constantly in your face beckoning you to grab the scissors?

Your tech stack!

You know, all the apps and programs you use to run your business. I call my tech stack my Productivity Straight Talk Toolbox and it currently contains 26 apps and programs I use in my business daily to power up my productivity and increase my efficiency.

Your tech stack might include your email and task management programs, social media scheduler, accounting software, video conferencing service, and more.

So, when’s the last time you trimmed the fat off your tech stack? When’s the last time you audited it to find out what apps and programs are no longer necessary but you’re paying for them either monthly or annually?

Just like a junk drawer or closet that gets overstuffed over time as more items get added than purged, your tech stack can also get bloated and overwhelming (and expensive!) because you’ve added so many apps and programs over the years and never looked back.

Well, in this episode of Productivity Straight Talk, I dive into tips for auditing, purging, and filling gaps in your tech stack so it stops overwhelming you, you stop wasting hard-earned money on apps and programs you don’t need, and you’re able to run your business more efficiently and productively.

It’s time to stop Frankensteining your tech stack and instead, audit, purge, and build it responsibly!
