February 2009 Efficiency Newsletter

Technology does not create productive people. We do.

Can you believe that February is almost over? At SET we had some fun at home, speaking at Ignite Baltimore and taking an impromptu retreat in Charlottesville. This next month is full of conferences & far-away clients for me. (7 cities, yikes)
