Last Thursday’s post was about three mobile apps for the busy road warrior. After reading the post, one of my clients sent me an email to share five of HER favorite mobile apps. Great apps, so I thought I’d share three of them in this week’s post.
On the road again … with mobile apps!
Plane travel and “windshield time” is a fact of life for many busy business professionals these days. And yes, I wrote this during the holidays, but the information is still beneficial for time-pressed road warriors at any time of the year. So, for Execs “on the go,” sometimes just remembering to do the simple things can be a trick, much less remembering to write down ideas, tasks, and whatever else hits your already overloaded brain.
I love tools and apps … technical tools and apps that is. And, this seems to be the time of year when products and services start rolling out their updates. 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.
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?
Many of you know I’ve been searching for the perfect to-do list app or program for quite a while now. I’ve tried quite a few of them, but nothing has rocked my boat. I need an up close in my face solution that’s in front of me all the time. You know the old saying “out of sight, out of mind?” Well that’s how it’s been with all of the previous so called “solutions” I’ve found.
I’m looking forward to traveling to Edmonton, Canada, later this week to attend the CAPS 2016 Convention (I’m in denial about what the temperature might be, so please don’t tease me). And thanks to three of my favorite business apps, I won’t need to worry about being disconnected from my business, because I’ve systematized things so all of my documents (not just the important ones) are accessible to me online.
All I need is my phone, really, and I have everything I will ever need, right at my fingertips.
Anyone who has ever read my weekly newsletter or blog posts most likely knows how much I love Skype. It IS my go-to for quick and easy communication.
If you don’t already use Skype, you might want to check it out. I use it for a multitude of reasons, on a daily basis.
There was a discussion the other day on Facebook about which messaging app(s) everyone was using, and why. Of course I have my druthers, but the conversation got me thinking about the various messaging apps available today, so I thought what the heck, that sounds like it might make a good blog post!
So, I pulled together 6 messenger apps I thought would be a good representation of what’s out there. I’ve tried all but one of them.
I had a discussion the other day with a rep for a pretty cool system out there for coaches and consultants. It’s called vCita. vCita is a custom app for websites, social media or email campaigns, and it gives you the ability to capture more web traffic and streamline scheduling and payments.
