Google integrating our lives! Resize and email your pics. This is useful news :)
H/T +Denise Wakeman ... thanks for sharing +Yifat Cohen's post!
 
Gmail Update - Email your smartphone pictures from your computer.

If you use Google+ to automatically back up your smartphone photos, you'll now be able to email those images from your computer more seamlessly.

The new Insert Photo button gives you instant access to all the images backed up from your mobile device via Google+, starting with the most recent.

The update also lets you email entire albums that you have created with Google+. In addition, you can now resize images while composing messages by simply dragging on any corner. This way you don't have to include a massive image that might otherwise annoy the recipient - awesome!

You're welcome +Rebecca Quinn! A seemingly subtle change yet one that can actually save time.

I'm sure this has been shared a million times already but I'm going to do it again. Hopefully everyone will see it and take it seriously. I know I have some major cleanup to do tomorrow. Damn bugs.
 
Changing passwords is a pain in the behind. But everyone should be doing this because of the Heartbleed security problems that have come to surface the last few days: http://www.techmeme.com/140410/p3#a140410p3

Some things:

1. If you don't have a different password for each site you are doing it wrong! (Particularly for banks, email, and major social networks).
2. If your password isn't at least 12 characters long, you are doing it wrong!
3. If your passwords have ANY dictionary names in them, you are doing it wrong (things that appear in the dictionary).
4. If you aren't using two-factor authentication on EVERY site that offers such (Gmail, Facebook, Twitter all do) then you are doing it wrong.
5. If you aren't using a password manager like Lastpass then you are probably doing it wrong (I let it generate all my passwords now to make sure I get truly strong 20-character passwords).

Good luck out there!

+Jason Frasca just made my day! I love Post-it® notes for all kinds of things but especially for creating processes & workflows & laying out new programs ... all over the wall! Can't wait to check out the Evernote integration as well.
 
14 Ways To Use Post-It Notes For Collaboration
Save Them All with Evernote Post-It's

Fast Company wrote a fascinating article on Post-It Notes - How The Post-It Note Could Become The Latest Innovation Technology: http://jmf.im/1jQVgH3

It covers the fall of paper and the recent resurgence of the Post-It Note. How 3M is partnering with the likes of Evernote and their innovation to meet market demand with new Post-It Note products.

To capitalize on the revitalization of Post-It Notes, 3M has developed Collaboration Central - http://jmf.im/1kfj36g where you will find 14 collaborative ways to use Post-It Notes. I thought the list was fascinating:

14 Ways To Use and Collaborate with Post-It Notes

1.  5 Whys 
2.  Affinity Diagrams 
3.  Nominal Group Technique 
4.  SWOT Analysis Attribute Change
5.  Attribute Change 
6.  Logic Tree 
7.  Reverse Thinking 
8.  Brain Writing 
9.  Mind Mapping 
10. Simple Process Flow Diagram 
11. Storyboarding 
12. Fishbone Diagram 
13. Critical Path Method 
14. Agile / Scrum Methodology

Of course I believe the best thing you can do is to use Evernote Post-It's in all of these exercises to save and share them after each exercise. 

Read on, for details including Evernote integration: http://jmf.im/1e2BngF

What are some of the most creative ways you are using Post-It Notes? Do you collaborate with them? Do you use Evernote Post-It Notes? I'd be interested to hear in the comments below.

Requests to Join this Community

As we near 50,000 members we are revisiting what we are doing here and how we can create more value for our members. You will see the moderators rolling out new guides, FAQs, opportunities, Hangouts, and more. You are welcome to offer suggestions as well - just contact any moderator!

When people submit a request to join we will be looking for the following on their profile, business page, and/or hovercard:

• A real name and/or business name

• A profile picture and/or business logo

• Completed profile and ‘About’ section

• Evidence of a business one owns/is connected with, such as the company name, location, address, phone, website, what the person/the business does, etc. 

• Their posts should have value and not be all promotional. (While one can post as they choose on their own profile/page, we have found members who make only promotional posts also tend to think they can do the same within our community.)

• A statement saying 'entrepreneur' or 'self-employed' is not enough. Most business people use their company name because they want others to see that they own/have a role in that company. At the very least, the profile should state what the person does. For example, 'web designer' or 'copywriter' if there is no company name.

• In the case of a student or future business owner; something on the profile should indicate a plan to start a business.

• Existing members are grandfathered in unless they violate Community Guidelines, in which case they will be removed from membership.

• Membership requests that are not approved may be cancelled and resubmitted once they meet the above guidelines.

Reason: Up until now we have been very liberal in allowing nearly everyone in. We wanted this to be the global business community for all. Unfortunately this has resulted in scores or hundreds of posts made here every single day that are either (1) flagged by Google’s algorithms and placed in our spam folder or (2) do not meet the Community Guidelines and must therefore be removed.

Tighter join requirements are expected to improve the overall quality of the membership by restricting it to those who show on their profile or business page that they really are a business owner, entrepreneur, freelancer, self-employed, etc.

Effective: Immediately

This is what it's all about, for me. Having a lifestyle business lets me also do the things that are most important in my life ... like spending time with my twin grandsons! You'd never know they weighed in at only 2 and 3 pounds now that they have those chubby cheeeeks!

REMINDER: Motivational/inspirational posts are NOT ALLOWED. That includes text, quotes, quips, memes, graphics, videos, audios, and any other form that may exist. Reason? That stuff is all over the whole internet if you want to see it ... we don't need more of it here. Let's save this space for useful business conversations and helping one another!

Introduction

Small Business Success Adviser. Make your business the best it can be!

  • Business owners share common challenges: Overwhelm. Wearing all the hats. Going into business to do what you love but not loving the business stuff. Getting the word out to get more customers and make more money. Wanting all the parts of your business to work together.

  • For small biz owners, solopreneurs & professionals.
  • Business plans. Marketing plans. Operations. Online presence. Getting you found online & off. Emergency preparedness. Customer service. Organization, automation, outsourcing.

Did you go into business to do what you love? Are you spending too much time doing everything but that? You didn't go into business to be an expert ON business. I did.
