Book Review: Effortless Entrepreneur

By |2014-07-21T17:27:02-04:00July 21st, 2014|Categories: Home Page, Product Reviews|

Effortless Entrepreneur is not an organizing book, but it does emphasize the importance of systems and it uses one of my favorite services as a model. It was written by Nick Friedman and Omar Soliman, the co-founders of College Hunks Hauling Junk. I had the pleasure of meeting Nick at the NAPO Conference this past May. He featured his services at the expo, then delivered the best presentation I saw all week: How To Work “On,” Not “In,” Your Business.

I have been a fan of Sharpie products for years. Every one of my team’s project boxes have black Retractable Sharpies in them, so we never loose a cap. My clients love them! Today, however I am looking at three new products from Sharpie: the Premium Pen, the Neon Permanent Markers, and the Metallic Permanent Marker

Product Review: See Jane Work

This is the first time I have ever reviewed a line of product, but the good folks at See Jane Work have sent along several samples. Jane is actually Holly Bonn-Weiss, a successful entrepreneur who believes there is no reason organizing products can’t be stylish. I agree. I have combined them in the photos, but I shall review them one at a time.

Product Review: 3M 1.5 X 2 Post-Its

I know what you’re thinking. “Really? Those nasty little notes that litter my husband’s computer monitor and desk?” No worries. I don’t like that look either and I don’t like what it represents: inaction. What I do like, no, LOVE about the mini Post-Its is when they are used well. They are used best when they facilitate flexibility.

Product Review: Cablox™ Cable Management

By |2013-08-13T17:46:28-04:00August 15th, 2013|Categories: Home Page, Product Reviews|Tags: , , |

The Cablox Cable Organizer definitely taps into the whole minimalist aesthetic. Their one page website sells it’s experience as the “art of cable management.” It makes a feature of the fact that is designed in Denmark. For some reason, that makes me think of Brut, by Faberge, like that somehow makes it more special. It is, infact, about as easy a cable management system as I have found.
