A few days back I had the opportunity of seeing Gary Vaynerchuk speak for the first time live. I’ve followed him online for several years, read Crush It and am admittedly a fan. I appreciate his message to get out there and do it and at times when I need a swift kick in the butt I’ll tune in for a healthy dose of motivation.

If you haven’t received an email yet about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) you must not be living on planet earth. That or you don’t check your email very often.

I met with a prospect the other day that told me they had to wait 4 days to get a new user account set up. Yep. 4 days. Nuts! It’s gets worse.

Microsoft Office 365 is everywhere. Over 90% of the clients that I work with the Office 365 platform. It’s fairly easy to get started with Office 365. All it takes is a some basic tech skills and a credit card and your up and running. The helps business get up and running on the platform in short order. It’s pretty awesome.
