Where do they find the time? I mean everyone is Zooming everyone else. But Zooming is not what it used to be. Years ago, zooming meant deceiving or taking advantage of someone. More recently, zooming meant getting high on a mixture of drugs and energy drinks. Today, thanks to the Zoom video conferencing software, people are Zooming each other daily with no ill effects.
There are so many Zoom meetings that I cannot keep up with them. My brokerage hosts regular status meetings sometimes as often as two or three times a week. We host marketing strategy meetings. Almost all of our regional training classes are now hosted over Zoom.
Due to COVID concerns many agents or sellers are hosting their virtual open houses via a Zoom platform.
But Zooming in not just for business. It has other uses as well. Since I cannot be with them, I talk regularly with family members over Zoom. Which is helpful since many of them live far away. The best part is I do not have to feed them.
With all this Zooming going on, I have decided to upgrade my computer systems. I recently upgraded the speed of my internet connection to allow me to perform multiple tasks without slowing down.
Then I installed two additional computer monitors with windowing capability. Now I can host multiple Zoom meetings at the same time. I can attend a real estate training session on one monitor, converse with my mother-in-law on another, and I can watch YouTube videos of my favorite rock concert, all at the same time. I cannot tell you what a time saver that has been.
But Zooming raises a question that needs to be answered. Do you dress for your Zoom meeting? I mean, if you were going to meet in person you would dress appropriately for the meeting, especially business meetings. Should it be any different in a virtual world?
Would it be wrong to add a corporate logo to my new pajamas? After all, I want to look professional.
