Design, Feng What? The Essentials of Feng Shui

I've always been interested in holistic practices and feng shui is another subject I've become attracted to learning about. Mostly because, I do believe (even in PowerPoint) design and clarity are important to achieve success in what you aim to do. The idea that you can design a workspace at home or at the office that brings about more creativity, productivity and yes, even financial improvement intrigues me.

Here's a short posting on the basics of how feng shui may be applied to the home office or the external office.

PowerPoint Live User Conference 2008 and more...

Happy New Year Everyone!

Make sure and put this in your Outlook calendar. September 21 - 24 of this year, make a plan to go to gorgeous San Diego, California and attend the PowerPoint Live User Conference this year hosted by expert Rick Altman.

There, you will learn presentation techniques and methods from all of the top experts and Microsoft MVPs and have 3 days of glorious fun and education. You can see last year's schedule here for reference to get an idea of how the 3 days are usually planned.

I'm planning to be there myself and hope to meet some of you in person.

Also, Crystal Graphics has added 200 more background templates to their library on January 14th. This is an amazing deal $99 for the entire year for access to the entire library with unlimited downloads. Or, for $199, you can get access to the entire library of thousands of backgrounds AND a custom template for you, specifically. Good deal.

Finally, start off the new year with a more organized inbox. Here are 6 tips to avoiding email clutter in 2008!

The Brainy Betty newsletter comes out in a few days. Hope you are subscribed! Lots of free goodies this month to start off your year right. I've scoured the web and found some great resources for you.

Again, Happy New Year and have a wonderful week!
