Rearranging Apps on Your iPhone

Power on your iPhone and unlock it. You likely have it protected with your four digit code (if not, I recommend you set this up in the Setting).  The top page you see is the Applications screen.  If you’re like me and have multiple pages of apps, you’ll want to get to the first Applications […]

Social Media in Plain English

Here’s a very simple, short video by the folks at CommonCraft that explains social media for small business. Don’t think I’d like Sylvia’s pickle flavored ice cream either…still, she was able to identify her niche!
