A:  Let's say you get a new update, right? You know, you're there, you're on email, and you get a new update, right? You don't want to update because it's going to take time away from you. Key Takeaways: “The most important thing is to keep all of your skills sharp, and particularly up to date. And that means learning. Learning new skills as you go along.” - Vicky Oliver “If you're a gig worker, and you're doing part-time jobs, and you're going from place-to-place freelancing, you really have to stay up on that technology. You have to be able to adapt and learn. And if you don't know it, know that you are able to figure it out as you go along.” - Vicky Oliver “That's just a reality that we have to sort of recognize the technology, we must build the skills. And it is time-consuming to do it. And I would say you have to do it when you have the opportunity to do it.” - Vicky Oliver “It takes a little bit of an adjustment, and you have to agree with it and it needs to agree with you. So don't do anything rash.” - Vicky Oliver Ways to Connect with Vicky Oliver: Website: https://vickyoliver.com/ Ways to Connect with Sarah E.
