In case you missed it, Apple will be releasing it’s latest version of the Mac operating system (OS) TODAY – MacOS 11 Big Sur. Okay, sounds cool, but what does that mean and should you update? 🤷🏻♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today over on the Tech Savvy Creative blog, I'm talking about why you should update your OS, and what you should do before you press the download button. There are some important steps you should take before updating, so don't skip this one!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🖥 Link to the blog is in my profile!
Pro Tip: restart it. 😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But really. Just likes humans need to reset after a long day or stressful week, a simple reset can be the solution to many tech issues too.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This morning I spent a good 15 minutes trying to figure out why Adobe said Lightroom was up to date, when I knew it wasn't. After checking all the things, I decided to go ahead and just give the iMac a reboot....⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Turns out, that's all it needed on this chilly Tuesday morning!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, moral of the story... if something isn't working right, start off with a restart and then go from there!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @bendthelightbranding

Happy Apple Keynote day! At these events, we get a glimpse at what’s coming for hardware and software in the Apple ecosystem. Want to watch it live with me? You can find it on Apple’s website, Apple’s YouTube channel, or from the Apple TV app at 12CST!
Don't stress. Do your best. Forget the rest.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyone else need to hear that today? I know I do. Why? Because being a business owner is hard. It's full of never ending todo lists, figuring things out as you go, and fighting comparison. Whether you're a veteran entrepreneur or you're just thinking about starting something, the same rules apply.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do your best...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ...and celebrate along the way!
Anyone else's to-do list a mile long, and getting longer?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As if things weren't crazy enough around here, we decided that we are going to sell our home and buy a new one! So, if you need a visual to make you giggle, picture me, my husband, 1 year old daughter, and dog trying to "work" in the Starbucks parking lot for the last 4 days. We are so thankful for all of the showings we've had of our home, but y'all, I'm going to be so thankful when this process is complete!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also have to say... I've been extra thankful for @clickup_app lately. I've been a major fan for a long time, but lately, it's been nothing short of a lifesaver!
Learning something new can be daunting, but remember, it's a PROCESS! It will take time. You will make mistakes. You will have some trial and error. But remember - be kind to yourself along the way!
🖥 Hey Mac Users!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that there's a backup tool that comes with your Mac?? It's called Time Machine, and this handy tool will backup your computer every hour to an external hard drive! It is so easy to use, and honestly, you'll forget that it's even running. Time Machine has saved more more than once (anyone else accidentally delete something too?).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to learn more about getting started with Time Machine, head on over to the blog for a full step by step! Happy Backing up! :)
Anyone else on their third cup of coffee already? No? Just me? 🥴Happy Monday, friends!
I've been pretty quiet on social media lately, but thats because I've been working hard behind the scenes!! With the help of @kindlybykelsea, I am officially introducing the new Tech Savvy Creative Brand! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our mission is the same - to provide a fun and comfortable place for you to learn the not so fun tech things. Our goal was to create an online brand that felt just like that - fun and welcoming! But can we talk about this margarita logo for a second?? Y'all, I have never felt so understood in my life! Kelsea knocked it out of the park with this brand design. GUYS THERE'S A WIFI LOGO IN THE LIME! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to see our new look, swipe right and then check out our website! There's a link in my profile!
