Power up your productivity

This list of online learning resources has sites I use for clients and also in my volunteer work when training. If you want to increase your skill level in a software program, start with a free site and plan about 15 minutes per day to watch a video per topic. You will be amazed at the end of one week how much more productive you have become in such a short time. Promise!
