I recently attended Direct Selling University, presented by DSN, and received such an intensive masterclass in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it can enhance your business that I was inspired to not only stick my toe in the water but take a full-on deep dive into all things AI. And I’m excited to share that exploration and what I’ve learned with you.  

If you are like me, you might have to overcome a bit of initial reluctance to really embrace AI. Here’s the first shift in thinking that I want you to make. You are already using AI. Every day. In every part of your life. Netflix giving you spot-on recommendations for shows to binge watch? That’s AI. Amazon, Instagram and Facebook putting things you just HAVE to HAVE in your feed? AI.

Google Maps. Apple Watch. Siri. Alexa. All examples of how AI is already enhancing your life.   

Which leads to another shift in thinking you need to make. AI is not a burden you have to take on. AI makes your life easier. I get the reluctance—this is probably something you don’t know much about. It’s something else for you to DO. And, you’ve got enough on your plate already, right? You want a side hustle that runs itself, not one that runs you into the ground.   

Many people assume that implementing AI is just adding more to your to-do list. But, in truth, it is the absolute opposite of that! What AI offers is not MORE. It’s LESS.   

  • LESS time  
  • LESS energy  
  • LESS effort   
  • LESS cost  

AI is emerging, rapidly evolving technology. I’m not claiming to be an expert—but I can tell you I’ve learned a lot just by experimenting with various apps and applications. And I’m happy to share what I’ve learned with you through the AI Edge blog.

If you don’t know where to start—start here! I will be continuously updating with my recommendations designed to get you quickly up to speed with the latest technology and innovations.   

Finally, I want to leave you with a mindset hack that might really help as you explore and implement AI. There is a learning curve. You must experiment and refine your approach to discover what works best for you. In many ways it’s like onboarding a new employee or team member. You need to provide consistent context, direction and feedback to get the desired results. So, while there may be challenges, there are no limits. All you have to do is get started!   

So, let’s learn and grow together as we sharpen our AI Edge!
