How I used Evernote to Onboard My New Virtual Assistant

18So how did you pull off this week's newsletter you ask?  I've been working with another Sandy, literally another Sandy!  My new assistant, Sandy, is beginning to take on some of Sandy #1's tasks.  Since Sandy #1 and I shared an extensive Evernote notebook, I invited my new Sandy to join.  Sandy #1 had done such a good job of documenting her tasks, that I have been able to just give my new Sandy a tour of the inner workings of The Inspired Office without reinventing the wheel.  Helpful notes in this shared notebook are logins, examples of old newsletters, YouTube publishing schedule, Sandy's weekly tasks, email templates, and more.  This Evernote notebook essentially serves as The Inspired Office's back office handbook. How to share a notebook:

  • Invitee must have an Evernote account.
  • In Notebooks, select notebook to share.
  • Click the share icon.
  • Invite via email.

How I Use Evernote To Keep Track of Who Has Keys to My Home

17How many times have you made copies of your keys and passed them out for safe-keeping, for the pet sitter or for family members, swiftly forgetting who in the world has access to your home?

Last week I had to make some new keys for my building and unit.

This brought me to a note in my "Home" notebook called "Keys to my home."  In here I keep track of the 5 people who have one or both keys to my home.

How I Used Evernote to Recall a Band My Friend Told Me About

14I was making dinner the other night, thinking: "What was that band Jamile told me about when I visited her NYC?"

I opened my "Music to Listen To" note in my "Music" notebook and there it was.

You'll see that I have notes from many various sources.

How I Used Evernote to Save a Coupon From My Email

Ever wish you had that coupon on you? I forwarded my REI coupon to Evernote this week, knowing that I'd use it over the weekend.

Instead of cluttering up my inbox, it was there waiting for me in my "Shopping" notebook.

Was a piece of cake to bring up at the register.

How I Used Evernote to Capture My Video Recording Set Up

Last week, inspiration hit and I recorded 11 new YouTube videos in about two hours.

I found the perfect spot in my bedroom to achieve the clean white background I've been wanting and I want it to be exactly the same each time I record there.

I photographed my set-up (stool, 2 yoga blocks and a mini tripod) so I can remember exactly how to set up my "recording studio" for next time.
