Mark: My tip of the week is learn more, go to and also, do check out the Money Tree Podcast.

Scott: Sometimes you have to move files from one computer to another, or you have to move files from your phone or iPad to a computer. Macs sometimes have Airdrop but it’s not always convenient so check out All you do is open it up on your browser and you’ll see this in the middle of your computer that says Coral Pipe (maybe your says something else), and what will happen is, if I go to another device around me like my phone for example, and go to it will now see through the internet connection the other computer. If I drop a picture or file through there, it will move it to the other device seamlessly.

Kirk: The one thing I think that has been the most productive for me this year is the book called The 12 Week Year by Brian P. Moran. It is so good, it helped me basically take a full year’s worth of productivity and jamming into one quarter. I got all my year goals accomplished this year in the first quarter, it was amazing and I’m still shocked that I was able to do that. That is one of the books that I love and I’m spending the next two weeks re-reading it again to make sure I can do it again this year.
