It is exciting when you get a new computer and starts using a program on it. But, having a program on your computer is one thing and understanding how to use it to its full potential is another thing!.  

Keeping records, calendar, financial accounts etc are some of the things that technology has made a whole lot easier for so many people.

It is very important for an individual to learn how to use a software and other products or devices in direct relation to what they need it for. For example, if you are a property management expert and you have Excel installed in your computer. If you are unable to apply it (Excel) to your area of expertise, you may find it a bit frustrating especially if the main purpose of having the software installed on your computer was to make your task/job easier. That’s why things like proper computer training are so important.

What can Technology do for You?

Let us discuss...share your thoughts :)


1.  I wish I can keep proper records of my customers using a computer program.

 2. I wish I can reach out to more people to increase my customer base.


Dear Jane,

It is never too late to learn anything if you are determined and persistent!.

There are different programming languages but starting with the basics really helps.

We can discuss more if you are ready to start coding now :)

I wish I can use it to help community women market their farm produce so as to avoid losing them because no one bought when harvested
