Facing Fears and Moving Forward

Learning new computer and gadget skills is as much about overcoming “fears” as it is about learning skills. Most of my clients express some version of “I feel so stupid, or I’m afraid I’ll break it, or I’m too old to be able to do this.” When we try new things for the first time we…

Fear Not the F Word!

From my favorite business development program, http://www.BookYourselfSolid.com  As an educator, I always want my clients to know and accept that “there are no failures, only lessons.”   Enjoy! How I Nearly Got My Mouth Washed Out With Soap Growing up in my family, we never talked about the F word. It was never, ever tolerated.…

Amazing Uses for Photos This past week I did a lot of instruction in photo management and it wasn’t with vacation photos as you would expect for this time of year.  Of course, the techniques are the same but it’s amazing how many interesting things clients are doing with photos. Even more important to me,…

I teach online dating technology

Love is in the air!  Recently, I’ve been honored to help two clients set up their online dating profiles and learn how to use dating websites. Actually, I’ve done this many times before, including taking photos of clients in various attire and teaching them how to upload the photos to their profiles. (Professional photos are better.…
