Dear Readers:

As fall began and summer fun ended, I have been swamped with client projects and trying to rebuild a crashed website. There has to be a better way to be productive. Our schedules are so packed with professional and personal responsibilities that you have to work smart to get it all done. That is the dilemma I faced and I was looking for a few ways to be more efficient and productive.

Add-ins have become my new efficiency tools. I recently shared my experiences with Office TIMELINE, an add-in for Microsoft Office. It has helped but I needed more help to help me streamline some of these tasks.

This month, I am featuring two add-ins that I discovered. Each helped me solve a problem that derailed my productivity and help a client. The first is Live Web which enables you to add live web pages to PowerPoint. Ever half to make frameworks for a digital project such as a website? The task is daunting and overwhelming. So finding an add-in like Power Mockup enabled me to create basic icon and element driven frameworks built on shapes created in PowerPoint.

Our next webinar is scheduled for Thursday, December 1st with webinar boot camp with executive webcast producer, James Hillard of Hilly Productions. Register Today! .


Till next time,
