Happily Married...Really?

As therapists, we see people in our offices, determined to make a relationship work, when sometimes to us, it is evident that it is not going to work. As technology consultants, we see the same thing! Let me explain. I built my first website, all on my own using iWeb. I had a new MacBook that I loved and thought, heck why not use the free software to build my website.

Free Google AdWords Support!

Google Adwords is a way to advertise your website on Google. It puts your website into a funny little "advertiser" box and can help to force a new website to the top or side of the page.

I will give you the information below... but here are some things to understand BEFORE you set-up your first Google AdWords account:

But I'm old school- I don't do tech

So, I had a little fun this morning creating my own "geico-esque" commercial. I get to talk to business owners and a lot of therapist every day who are terrified that technology is going to take over their lives. Below I have put in a short, silly pirate video that does a "reenactment" of this conversation. I know doing a webcam video would be more personal-but I thought putting on different hats or using different voices might freak you out or make you think I was going nuts! Hope this video makes you smile!

Well we all know how much therapists don't like cognitive distortions!
