I was griping (ok, ranting) the other day about my irritatation that gaming notices can no longer be blocked on the Facebook newsfeed. A friend mentioned that you can change your own privacy setting in Facebook so that your friends don't have to tolerate your gaming posts.

Ta-da! Here's a great explanation on how to change your settings and stop irritating your friends! http://tinyurl.com/cytu79z

"Time is what we want most, but what we use worst." - William Penn

I don’t know about you, but for me, time is all I’ve got most days. Every minute not billed is a minute, well, not billed. I am routinely faced with the need to deliver stuff to my clients, but I don’t want to waste their time and money paying me to make a delivery. Enter…the courier!

I have found that utilizing a courier is one of the most cost effective ways of efficiently getting something somewhere. Today, for example, a courier is making a delivery for me – pick up at 8:30A delivered by noon - all for $11. Excellent!

Where do you find a courier? I am a member of the local Chamber of Commerce and utilize fellow Chamber members whenever possible; my courier of choice is A&V Daily Courier - (651) 905-1213. If you’re in the Twin Cities Metro Area, give them a try!
