    Valerie how do you cope with all the social media; Facebook, Twitter, linkedin? do you set aside a time each day to run thru them and post as well as keep up to date?

      I generally set aside time each day to read, post and respond. It’s also useful to have some tools like Hootsuite (for scheduling and posting to multiple social media platforms); and Zite for curation, to name a couple.

    Valerie the chaps over at Manager Tools have some awesome approaches/habits when it comes to effective meetings which mirror the ‘no meetings’ idea. It’s another great podcast for the tool kit to sit beside SBBM and Timbo.

    Great productivity tips Valerie. I totally agree with reducing meetings. I am currently trying to use Evernote to replace my old system of post it notes all over my desk for recording ideas, to-dos and notes. It is a work in progress!
