2020 New Year Resolutions

Start The Year Right!

This showed up on my reading list, and the words inspire me for this next year:

  1. Bring value to the customer.
  2. Provide 51% of the value in a relationship, whether its's with an employee, a client, or a stranger.
  3. Always play the long game of lifetime value.
  4. Smart work will never replace hard work; it only supplements it.
  5. People are your most important commodity.
  6. Patience matters.
  7. Never be romantic about how you make your money.
  8. Try to put yourself out of business daily.

ZOOM will allow two people to communicate from two different locations using the Internet. People can see each other, talk real time and, as appropriate, share computer desktops.

Zoom is one of the few products that works equally well on both Apple and Windows computers.

Now, you can practice and learn with me!

LastPass Password Management 2019 Review

I have been using LastPass password Manager for several years.

I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews before I selected LastPass.

One determining factor at that time was that it was free. (It's still free!) After the first year I paid $12 for the premium version, but I never used any of the features the Premium plan brought to me.

That cost is a bargain because LastPass in now managing over 800 passwords for me...
