Ready to Sail

I think it is safe to say that today was not a very productive day. Not when you spend over four hours on the phone with "technical support".
No my computer is ok. Unfortunately my issue is with setting up my gmail account.
You may recall that on an earlier blog post I mentioned I was going to open a gmail account because I was so impressed with the extensions available on chrome. They only work with gmail (or Outlook on a PC). Of course I have a mac. So to make this sound somewhat interesting I can tell you that I have one company who hosts my domaine, another company that I use for an exchange server and then Outlook as my email provider. And now I have added gmail.
Seriously? I has some ok and great support folks on the phone today. Sometimes when I am doing computer stuff my hair color (blonde) has a tendency to shine and make me a bit dumb. But, it's all working now so who cares???
I set up a second email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) that is now technically my gmail address. And my email is getting forwarded to my gmail account and I have installed the extensions in chrome that will allow me to kick some butt in my email campaign to interior designers.
My head still hurts from the computer stuff today. And if you are at all interested, check out these google chrome extensions (apps). They are Hubspot Sales, Yesware and Data Miner. Let me know what you think! I can't wait to finish the tutorials on all of my new marketing tools.
