In this episode, I talk about a couple of business topics. Have you ever tried to go paperless with your notes? If you are like me, you like to take notes on notepads.. not just type them into the computer. I have been using a solution for years and introduce you to a new way to do it! Scannable and searchable.
I talk about some new Twitter friends, my end-of-the-year review.. more about our focus going into 2022. Hint, networking is going to be a bigger focus. And look out Milwaukee market.. here I come. 🙂 I also talk puppies. We recently had the big decision about if we are ready to introduce a St. Bernard puppy into our household. What did we decide?
And I close with a touch on some WordPress stuff.. and the “Always Learning” mindset. Enjoy!
