More About the Author
Writers, editors, speakers, consultants, and online pioneers--we wear so many different hats that it's a good thing we have two heads!
As information professionals we focus on bringing the latest in technology to the attention of everyone who could benefit from knowing how to use it. Our goal is to make sure these new technologies are easy to understand and integrate into our readers' lives. While we're busy researching the latest innovations, we're also meeting people who are using them successfully and gathering their stories. We are, before all else, storytellers.
Look at it this way. It's been a long time since most of us were fascinated by the magic of a microwave oven. But as mundane an appliance as it has become, do you know exactly how it works? Nah, neither do we. We honestly don't care about the technology behind it. We just want to know which buttons to push to make our coffee hot. Likewise, we can't begin to tell you how LinkedIn or YouTube have built their global networks, but now that they have, we can help you use them to make yourself more successful. We can also help you build a successful e-commerce business, if you'd like, whether on eBay, Amazon, or through your own website.
We have worked together for more than 25 years helping people become familiar with emerging technologies. From building a solar home, to convincing your boss to let you telework, to keeping your kids safe online, and earning your livelihood with your own e-commerce business, we've dedicated ourselves to making the online world safer, more accessible, more profitable, and yes, even more fun.
Our 20 books include The Complete Passive Solar Home Book, How to Make Money with YouTube, and How to Find a Job on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and other Social Networks. Our bestselling book is eBay PowerSeller Secrets, with more than 40,000 copies in print. We've also written extensively for the web, a whole different type of writing.
Whether you need an accomplished writer, a top-notch editor, a keynote speaker, or a consultant who can assist you with e-commerce or publishing, we can help. We bring creativity, energy, curiosity, and a passion for quality and results to every project. No project is too big or too small--we've worked with Fortune 500 companies such as McGraw-Hill, AOL/Time Warner, and individuals working on Internet start-up ideas. If you need a clear understanding of how to make the best use of the world's newest tools and want to be entertained while you learn, you've come to the right place.
