Are You Using Facebook Live? You Should!

Are you using Facebook Live? I am! Well, I’m just starting to.

Today — Star Wars Day —  I recorded my second Facebook Live video (see it at the end of this post). Unlike Google+ Hangouts, I didn’t jump at the chance to test out Facebook’s new video app.

First of all, it wasn’t made available to all users when it first rolled out. Only verified peeps got the green light to try it out at the time. And, second of all, I was a little more interested in learning about Blab.

So, now here I am giving it a go. I have to tell you, the experience was pretty good. I think you should give it a try, too.

Fact Friday: Sitting All Day is Sucking the Life Out of You

“The stress, long hours, and sedentary nature of your modern office job are sucking the life out of you– literally. Around 86% of American workers sit all day at work. If you’re one of them, Alan Hedge, a design and ergonomics professor at Cornell, recommends you change to positions every eight minutes, and take a two-minute “moving break” at least twice an hour.”

What’s Up With Organizing Tips and Blog Posts?

Thanks for stopping by my website! If you’ve landed here for the first time looking for tech coaching or if you were searching for organizing tips and tricks, the good news is that you’re in the right place.

Confused? Well, let me explain. (Psst! If you just wanna grab the organizing posts, just scroll down this page!)

In my past life, I was (and sorta still am) a professional organizer. The difference is that in the past, I helped clients in their home and offices kick clutter to the curb. I also helped them learn strategies to be more productive. Fast forward several years later, and I’m still focused on productivity. But, organizing, not so much.

These days, I exclusively focus on helping clients use technology tools to be more productive in their companies. Sometimes that means helping them learn about new small business, task, and time management apps.

Or, it can also mean helping them to come up with blogging or social media strategies so that they don’t become time sucks. You can jump back to my home page to get more deets about that.

Leveraging Technology to Increase Productivity

So, what about the folks who still want organizing information? Not to worry!

Though hands-on organizing is not my main gig anymore, I’m happy to share tips and tricks I’ve learned (and still use!) over the last several years. I kept several of those posts and you can find them just by scrolling down on this page, clicking here, or checking out some of my favorite posts below.
