CEO - Adam Oldfield workshop with Young Entrepreneurs
Tuesday July 9 2019 in Kitchener-Waterloo Once again I’m super excited to be supporting and Advising many of our future entrepreneurs located through the Kitchener-Waterloo area in the entrepreneur program. I’ve done this for several years and it is always a privilege to speak with young future minded business owners. I take great pride and sharing experience and further encouraging them how to be better sales people. I love even more hearing WHAT businesses they decided to try. I encourage everyone to try and make sure you will employ or give the opportunity to a young business owner trying to start up. Not only for the cost that you may be saving but even more so giving him a chance to mess up and learn from their mistakes.
Why your business needs to be online!
As you can see in this chart that was created it’s evident that millions of people are using online to share, entertain and now purchase. Where does your business fit online and how are you going about positioning yourself to your customers? Every 60 secs x $1,000,000 is spent online. Thousands of people are seeking for services similar to yours and how are you letting them know you exist. The problem with online marketing these days is that you’re so busy trying to make sure your product and service meet your customer needs you tend to forget you need to keep communicating to them through online marketing. 15 years ago you were able to talk to a sales rep within one of the mediums, radio, television, outdoor or newsprint and they would take care of putting together the ad for you. After it ran they could come meet with you…
Tech Talk - Friday, August 3rd, 2017
It is Friday again with awesome Tech topics with Adam Oldfield and Bill Kelly on 900 CHML!!! Facebook has a smart speaker that is a little bit creepier than what we’re used to. A 13-inch screen and the ability to use it as a video phone. It also keeps the surveillance on your house knowing when people are walking around. http://mashable.com/2017/08/01/facebook-smart-speaker-video-chat/#B881onoe65qU Haya – the gadget that allows you to control your entire home. Think of the movie Minority Report – in that you move your fingers in the air, touch the arm of your couch and you can now control all your smart devices. Turn up the volume on your stereo, turn off the lights, turn on Netflix on the TV. All this by making a 3D image that creates a radio/sonar wave that allows you and guests to control the house. https://newsstand.google.com/articles/CAIiEFsgcNqNRAz0uDGaW2cDMOsqFQgEKg0IACoGCAoHonoluluIFmMPqVBA Bi-Laws – we love them.

Facebook Security - update August 2017
Facebook has a new security feature that allows for you to have 3-5 friends help you access your account. This is very handy in the case you lost your password OR you got hacked. Just remember to pick 3 – 5 true friends! I would suggest that you might select a family member. See the full video below

ARTICLE IN THE CAMBRIDGE CHAMBER – SPECTRUM winter edition It’s coming to a point when most of our smartphones are reaching a capacity of which provide the most speed and the most features with security. But have we really maximized what we can actually do with our future smartphones? The fact of the matter is smartphones are mini-computers and packed full of features that demand a lot of battery power. In the recent months you might of heard that Samsung phones, and other products, have been exploding due to battery issues. It became such a massive problem with the Note 7 that it is now a law that you are not allowed to bring it on any public transportation in the United States, Canada or on any airline in the world. And doing so will result in fines of over $500,000 USD. Unfortunately Samsung isn’t the only one that has had…
Drone takes over office lights
Last week was a massive attack on servers through the Internet of Things. Adam Oldfield talked on 900 CHML Tech Talk about a lot of cool technology however we haven’t talked about the security that goes with it. This is a video that was done with a drone and hacks Philips light bulbs inside a building from outside drone. It is only a sample to explain how the power of security is critical when it comes to this new technology. LED lights come with the ability to be controlled with your smartphone. However, it costs extra to get the security installed. A new regulatory body is in the works for the United States to put security regulations for anything that has an internet-connected device to it. Here is a video showing how it works! Adam Oldfield, President of FPM3 can be heard Fridays on 900 CHML 11:30am with Bill Kelly….
Ways to Pay! All with Online convenience
I had recently received my business insurance renewal policy and they told me about the convenient ways I can pay them, which were by cheque or credit card. I noticed the letter advised me there would be a 2.5% charge for using a credit card for payment. Immediately, I called the insurance company to ask why they are charging this extra percentage. I was advised that they are entitled to a service fee. I disagreed. So I made a phone call to the Canadian Consumer Affairs, and challenged this disagreement in question. Their response was interesting. It is not illegal, however, it is against the terms and conditions with the credit card company to increase a percentage against payment. Knowing this, I had to call the credit card company directly, and ask the question as to why I am getting charged 2.5% on top of my insurance fees. To be…
