Simple Life Together Video Tutorials

You know we love to talk organizing and tech on the show, but sometimes just “hearing” about a topic on the show isn’t quite as effective as “seeing” something in action. I guess that’s why so many of you asked us to do some video tutorials to help you really grasp tech and organizing topics. So, since you asked, we decided to give a shot!  Here are our goals for our video tutorials:

  • Cover interesting topics that you can actually use to simplify your life
  • Do our best to break down these subjects so they are easy to understand
  • Try to make the videos interesting with real examples
  • Produce professional videos that get the job done, but don’t get caught up in trying to make it look perfect. Perfect takes WAY too long…and it’s just not “simple”

In this 1 hour+ windshield tour of Google Drive, you’ll learn how to create text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and even forms and surveys! (The forms and surveys are REALLY cool!).

I compiles some notes from many of my initial attempts to build my first few website. Geez, the learning curve for me was like a hockey stick! So, I put together this guide to help others as they start their own side gig.

Let’s face it, just like all people are not inherently into simplicity, many of those who are probably wouldn’t consider themselves “techies.”  But in today’s world, technology plays a major role in the success of your lifestyle business.  Tech stuff is probably one of those things you’ve been telling yourself you need to get better at.  The problem is, a lot of it seems so confusing and complicated.  Besides, you’re busy and can’t handle it all, right?  Well, this guide might be exactly what you need! I hope it helps! I know it will save you tons of time!
