🤷‍♂️ What’s Going On and Why It Matters:

Bookmark this: if you don't quickly get your GenAI act together, you're gonna get left behind.

🔥 Hot take 🔥 Microsoft Copilot is going to change the business landscape more than the internet did. And even if you’re not a Windows user, your career or biz might be at stake. For real.

(Don’t believe me? Fight me in the comments… I’m a digital strategy dork, and this is what we do).

Whether you're a solopreneur or a decision-maker at an enterprise company, we're putting you on the shot clock. When Microsoft 365 Copilot is fully rolled out on November 1, the way humans work (and what one human is capable of!) will change drastically.

If you haven't already developed your Generative AI game plan, drop what you're doing and focus on that.

Like we covered in today's episode, work is gonna change very quickly.

How can you get prepared?

Let’s break it down shorties 👇

🦾How You Can Leverage:

You didn’t skip out the required reading and skip straight to the good stuff, did ya?

Make sure to re-watch today’s show, as it’s a legit must watch. And, if you can deal with subpar audio, you should go listen to our previous episode on how Copilot will shake the economy. 

In today’s show, we laid out some details on the Microsoft Copilot’s rollout, what it entails, and what it means for the future of work.

Here’s what ya need to know, and how you can put it to work for you.

1 – Get your act together 🫡

Yeah, we're pulling no punches here y'all.

You need to get a GenAI game plan like yesterday. Whether you're on Microsoft or Apple/Mac, you know the biz landscape is going to be changing quickly.

Like we talked about in today's show -- Microsoft Copilot will be a generational step forward in how work is done. Don't wait until AFTER November 1 to make a game plan for your company.

Try this:
If you don't already have a Generative AI policy in place, make one. We've covered that in previous shows, so make sure to check those out.

You should be training your entire staff on GenAI basics, how large language models work, data security and privacy, ethics in AI, and AI governance. Don't wait until Q4 to do this, as the biz world will be off to the races and you won't even be at the starting line.

2 – Get your feet wet 💦

Microsoft is starting to roll out Copilot features tomorrow.

If you’re looking for the Copilot 365 features, though, that’ll have to wait until November 1. (And will cost $30/month/user). But as part of a free update to Windows 11, you can expect some next-level features tomorrow, September 26th. We'll see the initial rollout for Copilot, including new AI-powered features in apps like Paint, Photos and video editing in Clipchamp, as well as AI-centric updates to Bing and the Edge browser.

Try this:
Know what’s coming, when. Read Microsoft’s official announcement on the free September 26th rollout of Copilot in Windows 11, vs. the November 1 unveiling of Microsoft 365 Copilot across Microsoft’s suite of apps. And check this nice breakdown from the Verge.

3 – Take our free prompting course 🧑‍🏫

Self-promotion of game-changing free course coming in 3, 2, 1 …

OK. To be real, we weren’t even gonna promote our free Prime, Prompt, Polish course in today’s episode. But, Douglas brought up a legit point about PPP and using Microsoft Copilot:

Try this:
To answer that question — yes. In general, the PPP course teaches you the fundamentals of working with a large language model like ChatGPT. With Copilot’s upcoming release, learning how to prompt a large language model will become more important than using the internet.

Annnnnnnnnd, those skills learned in PPP are pretty transferrable, as Copilot does use GPT4 (and other models). So, go ahead and reply ‘PPP’ to this email, and we’ll send you the registration details for our free course, which we don’t make public on our website!

Now This …

What do you think? Will you be switching to Windows when Copilot drops?
