You've got a life - and no time to learn the intricacies of yet another online program!
"Thank you Nancy for making my life more productive! Now that I know the basics of using my Evernote program along with some of the other Apps you talk about throughout the course, I can keep much more organized. I also make training videos and over the years I have become more sensitive to crappy videos & you have hit a home run in my book. The quality of the audio & visual segments of your course is top shelf all the way. Thank you for taking the time to make it right." - Steve Dougherty
The secret to Evernote is using only the features you need. (Like I do)
You work, play, travel, create, cook, plan, and relax - and don't have time to learn every little feature that Evernote offers. In fact, if you're like most people, you've probably downloaded a version of Evernote onto your computer or phone, checked it out and then uninstalled it because it didn't look easy enough. Who has time to learn all that stuff? Not me.
At the end of the course you'll be able to create your Evernote account, create notebooks and notes, and start clipping online resources in less than 2 hours.
Don't waste time learning stuff you'll never use
Everyone needs to organize something:
Yes, you can keep things to remember on scraps of paper (think: back of napkins!), bookmarks in a Web browser, or random reminders on your phone. But with Evernote - the quick and easy way - you can quickly (and I mean fast) set up folders for every part of your life, then dump notes, images, audio, video - anything you want to remember into the correct folder. By the way, Evernote calls folders Notebooks. Whatever.
The cool thing is - Evernote has a lot of add-on apps (and more being created all the time) - so you can do things like have a scanned receipt sent automatically into your Receipt Notebook, snap a photo that's instantly e-mailed to you OR sent to Evernote, and set up (free) commands that save things like the photos in Facebook that tag YOU right into Evernote.

How to create your free Evernote account
Before we begin using Evernote, install these important apps and web browser add-ons
Learn how to create Evernote notebooks - and why they're a time-saver. Great for work, school, life
Save anything you find on the web using your Evernote web clipper. Save to specific folders, tag with search-friendly phrases
If you add tags whenever you create or clip a new note you'll always be able to re-find the note using Evernote's powerful search engine
Once you start using Skitch, you won't know how you managed without it.
Where to get all three apps for free - both for iOS and Android.
My most-often used of the DO apps. Take a photo and it's automatically sent to Evernote. Done.
I love this app - when I'm out of the office I can make notes about projects and they're automatically sent to Evernote.
My least used of the DO apps - but you may find it's an important part of your app arsenal. More for controlling home electronics than using with Evernote.
If you're a foodie, you'll love learning about Evernote Food. Save recipes, restaurants, images of your favorite meals.
