Getting Up and Running With Google Docs/Drive

This presentation will show you the basics of using Google Docs/Drive for productivity in your business, and answer your questions about the service.

Ever since the age of 3, when she watched Wheel of Fortune with her grandma as a goodnight ritual, Emily Cooper has been fascinated with the English language.  And since the age of 6, she's enjoyed experimenting with computers and discovering what was possible to do with them.

In the summer of 2007, as a sophomore in college, she bought a computer foot pedal and dived into an online medical transcription course.  She enjoyed learning medical terminology, but soon realized that she preferred serving college and graduate students, writers and (especially) members of the small-to-medium business community rather than working in a hospital.

In the summer of 2009, Emily Cooper joined the freelance website oDesk.com, starting with just a few small transcription jobs. That same summer, she happened to be exploring Meetup.com for groups to join and saw one called Hillsborough Coffee and Contacts.  The next meeting was that day, Thursday, at Saratoga Grill.  When she timidly walked in that evening little did she know the group would become the source of so much of her business.

As the women of C&C told her their needs, Emily's business expanded to include not only transcription -- which she really liked -- but also helping with computer tasks, making Facebook and LinkedIn pages, designing business cards, and managing newsletter mailing lists.  Wanting to promise not just quality work but a speedy turnaround as well, she began calling her small company "It's Due Tomorrow".

Over the next few years, Emily's client list, both local and worldwide, expanded greatly.  Positive feedback from the now "Women's Power Networking" group eventually led her to call herself the "on-call digital secretary"-- helping business owners with their repetitive day-to-day tasks (particularly those involving writing or entering data) so they could spend more time serving their own clients.
