Here is a link is to a video I made of a Primerica agent who swears by Ring (powered by VSee).  This was at the Primerica show a few weeks ago.  If you fast forward to about 6:00 min, he does 1:45 min story on how he showed an elderly, reluctant…

Skype and GoToMeeting, together at last?

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Skype and GoToMeeting (Citrix) are banding together to try and shore up each other’s weaknesses as collaborative business tools.  The former has begun asking $9 a month for group calling but has a limited screenshare and no collaborative tools; the latter charges even…

Remote vs. On-Site Time Perception

I read this very interesting article on GigaOm last month and have been digesting it ever since.  Although I don’t necessarily think remote workers are any more (or less) productive than on-site workers, Ms. Laidlaw makes a fantastic point about the productivity mindset of remote workers.  Any company that has…
