Being Solo: Free Tech Solutions Can Save Your Vacation

David Leffler

When you’re on vacation, technology can be your friend or foe, depending on how you use it. You can allow yourself to be overwhelmed by e-mail, or you can use technology (free technology) to deal with your clients more effectively.

Really.
