My favorite Chrome browser plug-in in the world is called One Tab and you already be using it. Stick with me because I’m going to show you a feature in the app that you may not know about. If you are new to One Tab, it’s a free Chrome browser plug-in that allows you to collapse all of your open tabs into one tab, for future reference.

But that’s just the beginning of the fabulosity! . In the video below, what I show you are some features that allows you to create whole systems with a click of a button. Now, that’s my kind of app!

After you watch the video. let me know in the comments below if you found it helpful. If you aren't already subscribed to my YouTube channel, make sure and do that and you'll never miss one of these tutorials.

How to Use IFTTT to Automate Your Life and Business.

In this video tutorial I will be talking about how to set up your IFTTT applets. What is IFTTT? It stands for IF THIS THEN THAT. In essence it connects applications and devices together to automate things and make your life just a bit easier. These "applets" as they are called are "recipes" that trigger certain actions between apps and/or devices. 

There are literally hundreds if not thousands of combinations of these applets you can set up to help you manage lots of mundane, day-to-day tasks.

How I Use Evernote to Manage My Biz & My Life

How I Use Evernote to Organize My Biz and My Life

Evernote is one of the most important tools I use in my business, and my life.  Although I do still love a nice sharp pencil and a clean pad of paper, nothing beats Evernote for keeping things organized. The secret to using Evernote successfully is in it's tagging feature. Yes, you can create oodles of notebooks and categories, but if you are anything like me, you will forget where you put something as soon as you put it there. Tags allow you to simple type whatever logical word comes to mind into the search bar, and if you tagged your item, it will pop up instantly. 

I created this video, below, to demonstrate, and also a workbook.


 
 

 
 
 

How do you use Evernote? I'd love to know!

How to Hire and Train a Virtual Assistant (Before You Think You Are Ready)

how to hire and train your first virtual assistant

I wish I would have known this when I first started my business: hiring a virtual assistant, right off the bat is one of the smartest things you can do to grow your business.

I know the objections:

I'm not making money yet.

I wouldn't know what to give to a virtual assistant, I can barely figure out what to do myself.

I'm so disorganized. And by the time I explain it, I might as well do it myself.

But listen up:

If you spend your days doing $10 an hour tasks, that's about how much money you can expect to make.

That is time you ARE NOT spending doing the things that are actually revenue producing. 

Hiring a virtual assistant for my tiny little business was the best move I have EVER made in my business.

I've created an entire system that will walk you through how to find someone who you can afford to pay, where to find them, and how to onboard them in a systematic, automated way that will not take up a ton of your time.

Here's the link to the course.

Here are few of the courses I recommend to help make the process easier. When you log in to the course, I also give you a workbook with lots of other resources as well.

Onlinejobs.ph - These are VA's exclusively in the Philippines.

Screenmailer - Record your screen and voice and share video instantly. (No uploading or downloading required)

Trello - A project management system that allows you and your VA to be on the same page, literally. (I use the free version)

Lastpass - Allows your VA to access your accounts, without knowing your passwords.
