Tempo

Often times meeting stress has little to do with the actual meeting and much to do with the little details required to be ready and on time for it. Panic can arise when you realize you can’t find the location address or you’re circling the area trying to find a place to park or you realize you never took a moment to find the document you need to review. Fortunately, there’s an amazingly simple solution to eliminating much of your pre-meeting stress. It’s a smart calendar app called Tempo that acts as your personal business assistant providing everything you need, right when you need it. As you may have noticed, I don’t usually spend a lot...

How to Dramatically Reduce Time Typing

Earlier this year, Dan Pink shared in one of his newsletters about how he uses text expanders to dramatically reduce the amount of time he spends replying to e-mail. I’m not the most tech-savvy person, but the idea of having short abbreviations for frequently typed text appealed to me. So I started using a text expander this summer and was AMAZED at how easy it was to use and how much easier it made responding to frequently asked questions. As I often do when I find something to be of great benefit, I started telling everyone who would listen (even some who wouldn’t!) about it. But I found that few people were giving text expanders a try because they either...

8 Tips for Keeping In Touch

Last week, I shared about making more professional connections. But once you’ve met new people, the whole idea of keeping in touch can fill you with a sense of dread, guilt or fear if you don’t have the right strategies in place. To help you out, here are 8 Tips on Effectively Keeping in Touch: 1. Remember that you don’t need to keep in touch with everyone. It’s OK to sort through business cards at the end of a networking event and to decide who to follow up with for further discussion. 2.
