I am as in love with the internet as ever! I actually got passionately upset last night while speaking to this guy on the phone. We were being set up, and I decided to have a conversation with him first, and he wouldn’t take my answer for what my job was (acting…I’m in a play…), so I said, okay, well I’m also into Social Media Consulting. He went on to talk about how Facebook was useless, and for children, and a waste of time. Well I gave him my two cents (is the idiom cents or sense??), and needless to say there will be no date.
But this post is actually about something new I found through my friend Danny. Genbook is a website for appointment scheduling and client management and I LOVE it. I’m all about the virtual office: save resources, flexible schedules, happy employees. I’ve worked in many virtual/home office environments and there are a few things that make it tough. The worst being that it’s hard to leave work at the office, because work is there all the time. Another tricky part being attempting to maintain a sense of team and community among employees when everyone is separate. But if the little things, like scheduling appointments & meetings, communication via chat/email/smartphone, and information sharing are taken care of, then the other things are easy to work on. Such as saying “No, I will not write that grant at 3am because I am not working right now and I worked from 9-3!.” Anyhow.
Genbook helps you setup an online calendar, and folks can setup up appointments by checking it out and submitting an appointment request. Its pretty handy, and the cheapest package is …. well…Free.
Check it out…More info on how to contact me using Genbook coming soon…
