After some of her speaking engagement, Shirley has been asked to provide
reports on various e-tools for time and meeting management. So this is
one of her goals for 2009. We need your help finding tools to

Shirley's goal was to write more articles and get higher hits in 2008.
49+ new articles were written with all articles hits on
32,630 (up from 4,820 hits thru 2007) and were republished on over 273
other sites all together. The most popular articles were in the categories of meeting

if your current business software has a goal feature or utilize your
spreadsheet software for tracking. Most spreadsheets allow for easy
creation of graphs too.
