When it comes to being a business owner, there’s always goals to set and a plan on how to accomplish them. I’m a BIG believer on spending money on items/programs that will help make my life as a business lady/wife more effective and efficient., ESPECIALLY if it gets me one step closer to reaching my set goal(s)!! It’s a Win-Win!! So when I discovered this secret weapon, it saved hours on my post-wedding workflow!
To give an example, a few of my goals for the wedding season are to have a wedding blogged on Tuesday (if it was a Saturday wedding). Also, I like to have all edited images from that wedding sent off to the Bride + Groom before they get home from their honeymoon (within a week of their wedding!!).
After I get home from a wedding (or an engagement session) I’m able to upload up to FOUR memory cards and download all of the images at once!! Talk about a time crunch! Depending on how many cards/how many images on a card.. I can now be finished downloading all images under 20 minutes!!! Before this, I had to individually download memory cards one by one and it was a slow and dreadful process!
So what is this incredible item?? Like I mentioned before, it’s a Lexar Professional Workflow HR1 – Four-Bay USB 3.0 Reader Hub and it’s a lifesaver – literally!! And as an added bonus, you can pick either just SD or CF card slots, or mix and match!! (Side note: The card reader hub is a separate purchase than the SD/CF card slots!! Make sure you’re ordering the hub AND the 4 card slots too!) Because I’m able to cut down on my post-wedding workflow time, it allows me to spend that extra time with my husband and to live my life beyond the computer! And that’s something worth investing in!
