While having a conversation during a virtual tea party the other day, the subject of to-do lists came up. The quest to find the perfect to-do platform seems to be an ongoing thing for so many of my friends and colleagues. As many of you know I searched for the perfect to-do list app or program for quite a while. I’ve tried quite a few of them over the years, but nothing rocked my boat.

Last week I covered a couple of updates on the social media front. This week I’ll share the latest updates on a couple of my favorite apps, Canva for Work and Beacon.
Social media and social media tools change and come and go at the drop of a hat. As much as most of us prefer consistency, it’s just NOT gonna happen. Today’s post is about a few random bits of social media updates for a couple of tools and apps.

I’ve been traveling a lot more this year attending business meetings and networking events. Up until now, I’ve never really needed to track my mileage; but with the current mileage rate for 2017 being a whopping 53.5 cents per mile, I decided it’s in my best interest to track it.
You’re feeling pretty smug that you’ve created a strong password system, and you’re confident your data, files, and sensitive information are as safe as a lock-down at Fort Knox. But are they? Or, you fall under the category of the many, many people I talk to on a regular basis who can’t remember their passwords. So what are we to do?
