Episode 120 Show Notes


Artificial Intelligence and its impact on how we do business is something I like to talk about any time I’m given the opportunity. With the way AI is integrating into our everyday life, it is inevitable that we start facing the different ways that it will impact our roles in our industries.

When we are faced with a program that interacts and behaves as a human, taking over basic administrative tasks and conversational needs while being very accessible and providing answers and results that feel real and tangible – it opens so many doors in our personal lives and our businesses and changes the way we interact with technology.

Continuously growing in popularity, AI is generating a huge following, and the ultimate reason is that it takes care of the tedious, mundane things that we often find ourselves dreading. Writing that introduction email for a job interview? Creating that budget policy? Need a recipe for chicken teriyaki? Ask an AI platform, and you’ve got an answer at your fingertips within seconds. 

It’s plain to see that AI technology isn’t going anywhere. It is here to stay, and the sooner we find a way to capitalize on its functionality as business owners, the better we will position ourselves for the future. The increase in productivity alone is initiative enough for businesses to implement into their day-to-day ritual. By taking over some of the routine workload, we can increase how much work our employees are able to do each day by streamlining efficiency.

The first part of this series is full of so much expertise and information surrounding AI platforms and the role they play in the workplace. If you’re considering incorporating an AI platform into your business to streamline your work processes, you’ll want to tune in to this episode to hear more about the ways that Marc and Nick see AI changing the future of how we do business.
