Are you up to your eyeballs in snow, sleet, rock salt, and scarves? Yep, it's winter all right, something my Ottawa neighbours and I know all too well. Even though this year's season got off to a late start, Mother Nature is making up for lost time.
There really are apps for everything, and you better believe I was keen to find some that help me survive winter in style. And, at the very least, playing with your phone is a fun alternative to all the shoveling! Have we left any of your favourite apps of the list? Let us know!
Have you ever heard the expression that if you want something done, you ask a busy person? It's absolutely true! The busier a person is, the more efficient they are at getting things done. There's no time to mess around - you become a lean, mean, list making machine! And some of the busiest people I know are small business owners. But even these productive people need a little help with organization and these 4 apps can help you keep on task.
These are the best apps if you love to cook, travel, dream & eat!
There are few industries that have been revolutionized by social media quite like the food industry. From popup restaurants earning fans on Twitter to children learning new cooking techniques by following chefs on YouTube, food and cooking are more accessible than ever before. And if you want some culinary inspiration on the go - or if you have a food based business you're looking to take to the next level - these 5 apps will have you reaching for your knife and fork.
I think it doesn't matter how old you are - September will always be back to school time! There's just something in the air every autumn that makes you want to sharpen your pencils and hit the books. But for the kids, that feeling isn't optional. They're plunging back into their education whether they want to or not! Happily there are some awesome apps out there than can help them get back in the grove - and will satisfy their parents' need to feel scholarly again.
Photos are a key component of social media success. But how should a small business start snapping?
Studies have proven, time and time again, that variety is a crucial ingredient for social media engagement. Posting at different times of the day, posting a mix of fun and serious materials, posting a mix of words, videos, and photos. And it’s this last part that is often so intimidating to entrepreneurs. Do you have to become an expert photographer on top of everything else?
Stress not - it’s easier than ever to create great images on your smart phone for posting on social media. I presented about photography apps on CTV Ottawa Morning Live and I'm thrilled to share 5 of my favourites with you as well.
