Don’t Just Plan: LIVE the plan Video tutorial

Did you ever spend a lot of time planning but then not follow the plan? Here are some tips for LIVING your plan #BLISSfulLife #LiveThePlan #planning #PlannerGirl #PlannerCommunity #PlannerNerd

I have learned that a lot of people who love planning aren't that great about making their plans a reality. That loses the point of planning.

Video Tutorial: Making Friends with Google Drive 2015

Have you tried Google Drive? It's a fabulous suite of tools, and it can save a whole lot of trouble with file formats.

Dealing with some technophobes recently, I decided to make a video tutorial to help them make friends with Google Drive. As an author, it can help you in so many ways, so here is that tutorial.

Why Use Google Drive?

Google Drive is a cloud platform that lets you work with all sorts of documents. It includes:

  • Word processor
  • Spreadsheets
  • Forms
  • Presentations

And you don't need MS Office or similar suites to use it. And no more issues of not having this or that program to open a document.

And its free

My Google Drive Product Review

I love it because I can access files in Drive from any device, and I can choose to share them, or not, with anyone or only with specific people.

It's a fabulous tool for collaboration. I'm on a committee, and I put all our PDFs, docs, spreadsheets and forms in Drive so we can have easy access. No more emailing files back and forth and working on an outdated version!r
