Do you find yourself typing the same thing over and over again? I do. So much of what we write is repetitive.
I found a program that organizes your frequently used text phrases and allows you to paste them into any application. That means that you can type a paragraph, and then with just a couple of mouse clicks, drag it into the document you are composing. There is no need to open folders or documents, it's all in one place. The program is Phrase Express and it's free for personal use! You can save thousands of sentences or paragraphs and label them- to quickly find, and use in seconds.
Let's face it, support coordinators have a lot to remember. People to call, support plans to write, home visits to do, faxes to send, service authorizations to correct- must I go on?
I found a program called Cute Reminder, that is really helpful.
- Create desktop sticky notes
- Set up non-annoying "pop up" reminders
- Manage your ideas with just one or two mouse clicks
I have it on my computer. When someone calls me and gives me a task to do, I simply click the reminder button, type in the task, and click on the time I want the reminder to pop up. If the reminder pops up, and I'm still to busy to complete the task, I simply hit the "postpone" button.

Has your cell phone bill gotten out of control? You might want to look into Metro PCS's plans. They start at just $30 dollars per month for unlimited local calling. The most expensive plan is $45 per month. The best part is that everything is prepaid, so you CAN'T go over your minutes. Also, there are no contracts, so you can cancel anytime.
Even if the Metro PCS plan doesn't meet your own needs, it might be something your consumers would be able to afford. If you're interested in a Metro Plan, click on the link below, type in your zip code, and then click "other carriers" to see all the plans in your area. If your lucky, Metro will be listed.
