I've sat through some ugly presentations. It blows my mind that some people still use clip art and bullet points to tell their stories. Instead, just use photos. Your own, wherever possible, and Pexels.com to round out your slides. They have a huge database of free,...

You probably have a million passwords, like me. Here's how my password keeping evolved: 1990's - Word Doc 2000's - Google Spreadsheet 2010's - Chrome Browser Now - 1Password Works on my computer, my browser, and my phone. Saves passwords, credit cards and other loyalty cards. And when I sign...

Android users will love this one. I've never had an Android, but I'm told they have some cool automation shortcuts. Well if that's true, and all these years my smart phone has been limping along behind the innovation curve, I just found a jetpack. Workflow lets you...

It blows my mind how some businesses are run with a dozen spreadsheets. If you feel like you’re working too hard and entering data redundantly, you probably need a database. Over the last few years I’ve helped develop totally customized web apps for running my clients’...

If you don't have Adobe Acrobat, but want to make slick, fillable PDF's that anyone can fill out, try PDFescape. I've been using this tool for years. It's super easy to drag and drop fields over the places you want your employees or customers to fill...
