A few of my favorite things....

I have 2 mantra’s that have served me well:

“Work smarter not harder” and the second one is “I have a love/hate relationship with Technology. I love it when it works and I hate it when it doesn’t!”

Having said that, I am going to be sharing my favorite apps and programs on Tuesdays, or as I like to call it TOTS (Tips On TuesdayS). Some will be Tech Tips others might be productive tips, networking tips, career search tips or cooking tips. Okay maybe not cooking tips, I just wanted to see if you are really reading this or just skimming through it.

Some apps might help you work smarter, be organized and some are just fun to use! It’s also a good career move to keep your skills current and know the trends and lingo.

I’m not saying that you should go from being non-techy to being super techy in one day, but think about learning a new program or app a month. Then just keep the ones that work for you!

If these don’t appeal to you, remember there are THOUSANDS of apps out there, find one that supports you best! But seriously, use technology to assist in both your personal and your professional life.

I’m starting off this series with……. Canva!

I love Canva! It’s so easy to use and saves me from having to hire someone to make cool graphics for all my social media posts. You can upload your own images and logo (tip: always put your logo on your images, people like to “borrow” a.k.a. steal them). 

And, yes this image was created with Canva, don’t you think it’s captivating?

I will be giving a tutorial on how to start using Canva, if you’re interested in learning how to use this easy program, drop a comment below and I will send you the details!
