Are you making the most if your cloud storage options?? Check out what Google offers #GoogleDrive #CloudStorage
 
Did you know Google Docs, Sheets and Slides files don't use any Drive storage? Neither do files that have been shared with you — even if you move them into your Drive. To see how much storage you’re using, go to your Drive on the web and look in the bottom-left corner. With 15GB of free storage, create and share away! http://goo.gl/fQt5JB

Many folks have problems with their G+ business pages! Admittedly the issues are a bit complicated, and more education on the topic would be helpful.

+Mike Blumenthal has done an excellent job here helping to educate people, and gives some very helpful advice for those needing help with their Google+ business pages.

One thing we've found very helpful is to understand that there are two types of Google+ for business pages. They are:

1. A Local Google+ Business page
These are often automatically created by Google, but only exist if your company has a physical brick and mortar location.

2. A normal Google+ business page
This is the type of page most businesses create when starting out on Google+. 

Choosing which type of Google+ for business page to use is important. In some situations it is advisable to use both! Check out the article linked below for more.

The generation gap. This is why no generation likes their grandparents to listen their music. I'm pretty sure the same reaction was garnered when Elvis and rocknroll appeared. Funny how they say all the cuss words then their reaction includes the cuss words. Double standards - I think so.
 
*Three Hilarious Reactions to Beyoncé's "Drunk in Love"

... and once you hear the lyrics for the first time you might have the same reaction, too.

Bragging rights
A Creative, Resourceful, Serial Entrepreneur - I'm in love with my husband and 3 kids and enjoy creating a home that nurtures. I love sports (playing and mostly watching nowadays) including netball, rugby, basketball, golf, fishing, cycling, swimming and adventure but also a tech and gadget geek (hide my iPhone and you're dead!). Learning to incorporate walking, yoga and meditation as an integral part of daily life. I love the beach (sun, sand and surf) and rural life (still own a shiny black pair of gumboots) - one day I will live where I can have both. I am however a girlie girl and enjoy the bling, high heels and lipstick of the city for playtime.
