Getting stuff done
In the old days, you would go out, come in, check your post, get on with stuff.

More recently, you'd go out, come in, check your post, check your answering machine, and get on with stuff.

These days, you go out, come in, check your post, check your answering machine, check Twitter, check Facebook, check LinkedIn, then get on with stuff.

It's all because you have to let people contact you whichever way they want. But no wonder it feels as though not so much stuff gets done.

Exactly Jackie. I recal a BNI member wanting to start a LinkedIn Group for us all to keep in touch with each other. I couldn't believe what I was hearing!

We all meet once a week and have 400 of each other's business cards detailing countless other more conventional communication concepts. Why do we need another one to worry about?

Personal:
Hates: tomatoes, alarm clocks and shoes. Likes: dancing, scuba diving and making people laugh.
Professional:
I run a writing and design agency that specialises in making complex information appear simple. I spend two-thirds of my time doing hands-on copywriting, and one-third training other people how to do it themselves (mostly for websites, newsletters and social media). My experience comes from over three decades in the marcomms industry, spanning copywriting, graphic design, print, web design, sales promotion, brand identity and much more. Before going freelance in 2001, I worked my way up to Senior Manager level in the corporate world, with a team of 12 graphic designers and copywriters reporting to me. I have also worked as an insurance clerk, a barmaid and a tea-lady.
