Do you work with people in different geographical locations? Whether the others are in a different house, a different city, or somewhere on the other side of the world, Google Hangouts can make you feel close. I currently use this app every day as the team I work with on a day to day basis is all remote. This is great for connecting with family or business associates, too. With Hangouts, all you need is a Google account and a webcam and you can: Video conference with multiple people When a person is talking, their picture appears on everybody’s screen with everyone else’s video in a smaller inset frame at the bottom of the screen. Share your screen with others on the conference call Share texts, links and documents during the conference call Get the app here https://plus.google.com/hangouts It’s available for computers, tablets and mobile phones.

How to Get Someone To Do Almost Anything for $5

Yeah, that’s right. For $5 and change (they charge a transaction fee on top of the $5) you can get a person to do almost anything on Fiverr.com. I’ve spent a lot of money on this site over the last few years mainly on helping me in my SEO (Search Engine Optimization) endeavors. There are literally thousands of applicable offerings for your life, too.  Vendors on Fiverr.com make money not on the $5 initial offerings, but rather on the Extra Gig offerings. Sometimes the initial offering is enough for me, but many times I chose the extra gigs, too. Just like eBay, the vendors are driven to please you and get a valuable review. All reviews for vendors are published on their profile. I’ve never regretted a gig I purchased on Fiverr.com. So, are you ready to look for a new job? Maybe you need some resume and cover letter help. Great, here are some offerings for resume and cover letter services starting at $5. Here is an example of what the Initial Gig and extras might cost: Basic Gig – $5 Extra Fast (3 days) – $20 Optimize your LinkedIn Profile – $20 Write a Cover Letter for an application -$20   I have also used Fiverr.com to find an artist for the book cover of my book, “Fat Burning Secrets.” So, go to Fiverr.com and use your imagination.    ...
