Tools you need...

This Hub is where I am going to post cool tools that I have found that are either FREE or very low cost that help me with my online success. You are going to need tools after all.

Google Talk your Internet Marketing best tool

You are going to have to talk to people if you are going to be online. There has to be some form of communication beyond the emails and the chat boxes.

RhondaKaye, my Kansas girl, turned me on to Google Talk. You can chat or better still like Skype (only better in my opinion) you can Google Talk. Just put on the headset and mic and wha-la!

Google Talk is Free and since its from Google the download is fast and safe.

I was burning up way too many minutes marketing on my cell phone so this was the perfect tool to provide some balance.

You can talk FREE and still have the chat box open for copy and posting links to each other which is a great way to look at the same pages or share content that is relevant to the conversation.

RhondaKaye and I were networking and brainstorming like we do (for our Internet Marketing students) and we were laughing out loud!

I'm telling you right now, we came up with some things that will just be wonderful in this industry. "Coming soon"

Laughing is nice when you have used your time wisely to establish a relationship so that you can have some FUN while you work. Rhonda did you feel like we were working? Did we come up with some great ideas? SURE!

Your business, its something that you own and you create if you want to enjoy the people that you work with,build those types of relationships. When you get enough people together like that, you will be unstoppable and have FUN.

Download the Google talk and add me: (it will send an invite to be on your list/chat if you just type in myhappylaptop in your Google talk box). Tell me you heard about it here.

Enjoy saving your minutes and being able to type and talk at the same time with a good headset. Remember, Oprah calls it multi tasking.

To your Success,
