After a *steep* price hike, and too many suggestions of why I should upgrade even further for $22.50/month (yeah, you read that right), I'm more than a little disappointed with @evernote support. I write them rarely. When I did recently, through the app, I received a boilerplate email reply saying if I really needed support I should email them again! Why? Because they are "restructuring" how they offer support. Really? And I wrote them in the first place why?

Just saying ... I already have OneNote, which in my estimation doesn't measure up to Evernote. But, it's backed by massive support and knowledgebases.

Do you need to work from home (#wfh)? Are you doing so now? Will you soon?
'
My video focuses on the #technical aspect--equipment and basic setup--and will interest you if you need to expand or make a basic checklist. None of this is overly expensive.
'
If you are thinking of #virtualassistance, this is definitely for you. (I'm a trained VA.)
'
Give me a shout if you have a question. Good fortune!

A bit 'hidden', but definitely a treasure. Are you in the #donmills area? This cafe is no more than 5 minutes along the Donway West from Don Mills. The proprietor is a wonderful man, service plus. Food and ambience is always great. Stop by... Experience it for yourself, or take it away with you.

Me 'at the office'. (Well, close.to the School's office on campus.)

Do you still go, even for part of the week, to a physical office? Does that work for you?

If you live in or near #toronto, and are more than a casual @takethettc rider, you already know you need to use #sherlockholmes reasoning to find your way through the #maze of the larger transfer stations. Take #yongesheppard for instance. In short, I just added another 10 minutes to my already lengthy trip to @senecaatyork 😜

I am 100% a #computernerd. What a long time ago used to be a hobby for me, became fully realized in a #college classroom, and I've been doing this for three decades. But, wisely, I am the first to say I do not know it all. Not even close. So sometimes, I need an #expert who knows stuff that I do not know.

Mark, of MDG Computers, knows a heck of a lot more than I do. So far, there is nothing I've asked him that he has not at least had an answer to. On a much more practical level, he has so far repaired or updated a couple of my #laptops. He is very realistic about estimates and actual costs. Me, and my company, would highly recommend him.

What I do for a living is demanding. So keeping in good physical shape, while helping others, is to me a winning formula. I hope you as a business person, or one who is becoming a business person, make sure to stay fit and well.

The importance of good, thorough #customerservice cannot be underestimated. And on that note, I'm happy to say that all of my @senecacollege students are already listening!

They ‘take care of the small stuff’ (or big stuff, if that’s what you need), and that …

Stepping Up to Working From Home

Working From Home? In the summer 2023 school semester, I taught a course at my college called Office Procedures. One of the first things I do, and did, was ask my students what they felt would be the single hardest aspect of my course or the semester. They answered, in a discussion post, resoundingly: Work-Life …
