There is just something about the month of August that makes you feel a sense of new purpose and push. Maybe because the kids are going back to school or maybe because it sets in that we only have five more months to make it happen this year on those goals. Whatever it is I am energized by the month and look forward to making big things happen.
There has been a lot of changes this year with Get IT Together! and me. My business has grown and I feel that I am finally at a good place in the process since transitioning fully to digital organizing and technology. I have accomplished a lot in just 6 months, but know there is more to go.
So I wanted to write a post sharing some of the big things that have happened and that I created to serve you better.
The first is I finally finished my Pushing Past Procrastination book. If you have not checked it out, please go over there now. This book was a true labor of love in it took me almost 4 years to complete for various reasons. I am excited to announce that the print copy will be available for purchase very soon. I will update this post when it is available in print.
The second announcement is I have finally opened Sam’s Tech Academy. I wanted a place where I could share my tech knowledge to help you in your business. So head on over there now. I have a couple of courses already up but will be adding new ones monthly. If you are not tech savvy and need to get up to speed on tech then you definitely want to check out Sam’s Tech Academy.
And then finally I have my new Facebook Group Digitally You with Samantha. I would love for you to join me over there in the group. I come in live twice weekly and share #TechChat’s and daily provide relevant tech information to help grow your business. It’s FREE to join and I would love for you to be apart.

Well that is all of my updates for now. It’s a new month and I am excited for all that is going on. If you are not connected with my mailing list drop your information in the box below so you can stay up to date with the happenings and special offers as well as my free ezine My Organized Life.
So I really want to be transparent today and talk to you about procrastination and perfection. Recently I have been looking at different systems to automate my workflow in my business. I was getting a little discouraged because I didn’t have a firm system in place as my business grows and I really like to get into a groove with something.
Now it’s my business to test what’s out there, but when you are looking for yourself and your business it can be very overwhelming. And to make it harder I was looking for specific things and really wanting to find the perfect system. But I had to take a step back and get real with myself. I was not going to find the perfect system and that was not the point. The point was I needed A system to use NOW that would help make things a lot smoother when working with my clients.
I was letting my perfectionism keep me paralyzed in procrastination. I had lost sight of the fact that I need to just get going with something instead of wasting time and not making any moves by evaluating endlessly.
So today I choose a system to try for 30 days, because that is what I teach that you should try apps and software for 30 days to get a better feel of how it looks in your business. So I took my own advice (Imagine that lol) and signed up for a 30 day trial with no preconceived ideas, but only hope that this will work well for my business. It is actually a program I have been looking at for over 3 years! So I am tossing procrastination aside and I am going to stick with this program so I can truly see if it will work for my business.
And that is my tip for you today. Stop letting procrastination and perfectionism keep you from making moves and getting going. Don’t procrastinate on your technology needs because you are waiting for the perfect solution. There is no perfect solution. I can testify to that. But there are good enough solutions to get you going and to grow with. And so that is where I am. I am at a growing stage and I am taking my own advice and tip and using this solution for at least 30 days to grow with and evaluate if it can be put into play long term.
So get out there and do great things! Conquer that technology and just get moving past procrastination!

Recently I have been getting a lot of frantic phone calls from business owners whose technology is suddenly letting them down. And it is happening at a inopportune moment too. Since I have been talking about procrastination I wanted to share with you why it is a bad idea to procrastinate when it comes to technology.
I share with you 3 things you should do to not get caught in a bad situation with your business if you just follow these steps and take action now.
P.S. There is a funny scene with a fly in this one, but you have to stick around to the end!
