Bye, bye Sticky Notes

If you're anything like me, your desk is usually littered with Sticky Notes outlining things that need to be done, calls that need to be returned and general reminders on how to solve the worlds problems.

My new principal and I have been joking the last couple of weeks about our growing affinity for sticky notes, but also the need to really get them under control (even though we knew that was probably just a dream).

This week, out of the blue, she comes by to show me something really cool that just made my sticky note loving, school counseling heart skip a beat!!

She introduced me to Google Keep.

This tech tool is incredible! She showed me how to use it in about a minute and reminded me that now I could take my sticky notes with me where ever I go! I love her brain and her humor!

With this tool you can create sticky notes, lists, etc on your desktop. You can even create check off lists. Each type of note can be shared with others, just like notes in Google Drive, and you can even set reminders on the notes so they notify you that something needs to be completed! Best of all she said to me, "you can take your sticky notes with you!" Did  mention that I really love this woman!

I just love this!!

Check out how clean my desk is now...

So, go forth school Counselors, lay off those paper sticky notes, free your desk, open up this Google app and get things done!

Let's all go to ASCA16

Each year I try to come up with unique ways to pay my way to the ASCA conference since my school district doesn't help financially.

This year I have been blessed with a successful Rodan & Fields business so I know going to ASCA this summer will not be as big of a financial burden as it used to be.

Now that I know I will have the ability to go, I would like to support the Counseling Geek's annual School Counselor Community Scholarship in a big way!

I don't have a TPT store or anything like that, but I can now share my small business success with the scholarship fund.

From September 1-12, 2015 I will donate 2% of all Preferred Customer sales to the scholarship fund! This is huge and could potentially send another person to ASCA16! I could never make a contribution like this on my own before I found Rodan & Fields, but now I want to share this blessing with as many school Counselors (and people) as I can.

I'm also running a pretty sweet special this month.

In addition to the 2% donation, I will personally donate $100 to the scholarship fund if I meet my personal monthly business goals! All it takes is 10 Preferred Customer orders and 2 Consultants to join me in business and start making their own residual income to make this happen.

Email me if you have questions. Check out my Rodan & Fields website here and learn more about the Counseling Geek's School Counselor Community Scholarship here.

I am hoping I can be one of those business people that donates a total of $350 to the scholarship. So, commit to buying yourself (or a loved one) quality skin care and in turn donating to scholarship---maybe you'll even win! Let's do this!
