The fall season is finally upon us, even though when we think about it we didn’t really have much of a consistent summer but the weather was nice and enjoyable overall. Fall typically brings with it the kids returning to school, the football season, the annual Susan G Komen’s “Race for the Cure”, and an inordinate amount of Pink all over the place. The Susan G. Komen foundation really does a wonderful job supporting the women in local communities throughout the country in the fight against breast cancer. Please support them, this goes directly to our wives, mothers and daughters!
The Cloud done right
We have been seeing a lot of interest from our clients about The CLOUD. Some clients are still having a hard time making sense of “the cloud”, what it offers and how secure it is. I did some research to find an article that really spells out the cloud for the small and medium clients that we support titled “5 myths about the cloud” which provides a nice non-technical review of the cloud. The bottom line is that if it is done right it can save your company a lot of money, provide a competitive advantage to the company, reduce maintenance costs significantly, provide resources that only larger companies could afford, protect the company from disaster, improve staff productivity, and provide business resources when and where you need them with minimal upfront capital investment.
For the remainder of 2013 TNCC is offering our clients a FREE NO COST assessment and consulting engagement for small business clients seeking to learn how the cloud can positively impact their bottom line and add value to their company and their clients.

Digital Notebooks – Not your Dad’s 3 ring binders
How many of you have a digital notebook? Remember back in the old days when we use to carry around 3 ring binders filled with notebook paper in them? They were typically broken up into anywhere from 3 to 5 sections. You’d take class notes in them so you could organize information and find it later. Seemed like a good way to get things organized in one place instead of having a bunch of loose papers flying around that could easily get lost. One of the best kept secrets in the Microsoft Office suite is a OneNote. We have included an article on this little gem that is basically a digital notebook application.
OneNote allows us to create multiple digital notebooks that can be used to keep track of just about anything – want to create a book of recipes for example? Then create a recipe notebook. Search the web, find recipes you like then print them out to your recipe notebook digitally, paste or insert a picture of the meal in your notebook from your iPhone, insert a website link to the recipe in your notebook, email it to a friend. Want to imbed a video showing you how to prepare the meal? Oh, you want to create a section in the notebook for just stir-fry recipes? That’s not a problem either. Enjoy the article below “5 Interesting ways to use OneNote” and organize yourself digitally.
