Praise for This Workshop:

“I want to give you a huge thanks for this course…I haven’t implemented everything yet, of course, but I can certainly see where I want to go with this.” –Win Day

“Thank you so much for doing this! Not only do I appreciate it, but I’ve already cut my inbox down from over 1200 (wow!) to less than 250 and I’ve started my Release Day Planning checklists in OneNote. This was such a great class for me. Thanks again!” –TJ Shaw

“I am so impressed! First off, I didn’t realize until I finally went through your initial OneNote lessons that I could create separate notebooks. I had everything in one giant mess – and you’d shudder to see how disorganized that one notebook is! All my years hassling my youngest about his overflowing messy school binders, and I went and virtually created the same thing. So that tidbit alone has made this a worthy class!” –Melanie Greene
