Are you a fan of personality profiles? Tests like Meyers Briggs and Strengths Finder have a lot of followers, but my personal favorite is the Kolbe Index because it is about much more than personality and really applies to work. The Kolbe Index is an insightful, overarching test that totally changed the way I viewed…Read More
“Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission – to make the world more open and connected.” – Mark Zuckerberg Okay, you may think I’m cheating a little bit.

One of the most frustrating parts of running a business online (or running any business where you’re teaching classes, meeting with clients, or in any other situation when two or more people need to be at a certain place at a certain time) is setting appointments. It seems like a simple thing, but how many times have you showed up at the wrong time or completely missed an appointment request in your inbox?

I’ve used it for years and now I couldn’t imagine using anything else.Read More

One of my favorite recent finds is Airtable.Read More
I’ve been really into Facebook Live lately, especially for my clients. It’s so much fun to interact with your audience in real time!
Most of the time, you can only Facebook Live with a mobile device like a smartphone. If you’re doing an interview, you can only show one person at a time on the screen. As awesome as Facebook Live is, there are still somethings I wish were different, especially for business owners.
I don’t love holding my phone up or having to rig up a selfie stick to make my live broadcasts look nice and professional. I also like to interview other people on FB live, but I don’t love how it switched back and forth, only showing one of us at a time.Read More
