Work faster with your laptop

Over the past few months I have been working one on one with real estate agents teaching them how to use Facebook to promote their businesses and themselves.  I’ve also been teaching agents how to use various software products that are designed to improve their productivity.

You are your own worst enemy!

You are your own worst enemy! Pretty bold statement, but I felt like I needed to get your attention quickly.  I am of the opinion that the real estate industry is masterful at shooting itself in the foot.  We have a number of ways that we do this, many because of national and state association…

I just love this infographic! (History of the Internet)

Time for a little fun!  You may have heard the term “infographic” being bandied about.  It refers to a collection of facts on a topic that are presented in place of or in conjunction with the facts being discussed. While noodling around on the interwebs the other night, I ran across this one on the…

A fast and easy method to transfer files (you’ll love the price!)

Recently I have been working both from my office PC and my iMac at home.  (I keep a PC at the office for old times sake) and have had to move some big files back and forth between the two.  I’m talking Gigabyte size files.  Really big ones.  Huge, in fact. I’ve been using LogMeIn…
