I’ve taken over 300 rides with Uber over the last year and I must say I love riding with them with a passion!
I’m blind and Uber was the answer to my dreams for transportation, both convenient and affordable.
I wish I would have thought of the genius concept the Uber founders came up with. Me being a tech head and all…the ability to scale a billion dollar business from GPS and a iPhone.
Nevertheless here’s some of the main reasons why Uber is a huge part of my life.…
Uber provides accessible receipts and you can even tag them for business expenses..
This works perfect for me and our accountant.
I no longer have to wait ours for transportation. I wait minutes…often times less than 6.
Uber’s customer service is second to none. They’ve answered e-mails in less than 30 minutes.
They didn’t just give me an auto response, they actually solved the problem in the first e-mail. Everything from correcting fairs and processing refunds was handled with excellence.
I want my company to operate with that type of excellence as well.
So add in the friendly drivers, the fact you can rate them, there is no cash exchange, they use PayPal, Apple Pay and credit/debit cards, their app is accessible, you can split the fair , etc.
I must say @uber…Thanks for changing the world!!!
You can now use the code uberblind (all one word) and get a free ride.
Uber is in several US states and a multitude of countries, so sign up using the code uberblind and take a ride on us.
Enter the promo code uberblind and we’re off.
You can call a Uber car from your Apple Watch as well. A few taps and you are on your way…OK, I’m gone now my Uber driver Drew in a Lincoln Town car, license plate #skhdo12 , will be here in 1 minute.

Drop Vox with a “V” as in VaShaun is your one stop recording utility for both the Mac and iOS.
On iOS you just install the app, configure a couple of settings and double tap on record.
On the Mac you install the app, set a default folder and press the spacebar to record. Press it again to stop recording.
Both apps for the Mac and iOS make it really simple to record one off audio files for reminders, podcast and audio notes.

One of the biggest tools in a successful individuals toolkit is the Calendar app.
It doesn’t matter if it’s managed by your virtual assistant, secretary or you use an app.
The goal is to be efficient and effective with your time.
You can make more money if you lost it, but the one thing you cannot get back is time.
Managing a feature rich calendar app is the second most effective way to create margin in your life, manage your affairs, stay on task and on target to hit your goals.
The first most effective way is to have another person manage your calendar for you.
If you can’t afford to have someone update and track your appointments then a simple calendar app can do it with little effort on your part.
The best thing is that you can always move up to a personal assistant as you grow. You can share the same calendars with your assistant in a few taps.
With a little coaching you’ll be calendaring in no time.
Here’s seven reasons why you should learn to use your Calendar app effectively.
1. You wake up with a plan
Every night I add to my calendar from a list of events I have written down that need to be added to my To Do list and multiple calendars.
When I wake up at around 4 AM I review my calendar to prepare my mind for the day ahead. This gives me clarity on what I’ll be focused on that day and why.
2. What gets calendared gets done
In the same way that following an agenda keeps you on task scheduling events, reminders and to do’s keeps you working towards your goal.
A good calendar app will have reminders, task and to do list functionality built in.
3. Multiple calendars
The Calendar app allows you to have multiple calendars.
For example you can have a calendar for your company, your home or a general purpose one for keeping track of your otherwise hard to manage schedule.
You can toggle these off and on as needed.
You can even create a calendar for your ideal week.
I have a calendar called Perfect Week. It has what I want my ideal week to look like.
We both know things are not going to always go as planned, but this way gives you purpose and direction for your day and week ahead.
5. Live life on purpose
Proper calendar management keeps you aligned with your focused areas of opportunity.
You live on purpose proactively verses being reactive to whatever life throws your way.
One empowers you the other leaves you feeling powerless.
6. Types Of Events
One time events are events that only happen once or once in a while.
An example is having lunch with a friend, carpet cleaning Monday at 3 or when your Mother needs a ride to the doctors this Friday.
A recurring event is a calendar entry that is ongoing.
For example a meeting that happens every week or a due date for turning in assignments or task.
How to schedule one off and recurring events along with alerts using the Calendar app made easy in the iOS Master Series.
7. The difference Between Successful Individuals and very Successful Individuals
Warren Buffett says…
“The difference is that very successful people say no to almost everything.”
Very successful individuals work in extended uninterrupted blocks of time.
Being able to say no allows you to be able to say yes to the things you like and want to do.

Are the home screens on your iOS device beginning to get out of control? Well if you are anything like me you have probably got far too many apps on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch than you could possibly use, and more than likely all of those apps have caused you to have several pages of apps to scroll through when you need to locate one. Now that I have finally jailbroken my iPhone I have found an answer to this problem and it is called Infinifolders!
I’m pretty trigger happy when it comes to deleting unwanted mail. The stuff in my Junk folder, the spam folder and of course those pesky people wanting to sell me their latest this or that.
Have you ever thought about jailbreaking your iOS device? If so, are you worried that your device will somehow be harmed during the process? In this post I will show you just how easy it is now to perform the jailbreak of your iPhone,, iPad, or iPod Touch, and it will only take you about 10 minutes of your time to do. So sit back and lets get ready to learn how you can join in the fun!
A few months ago I went to a sporting event with a friend of mine. We ended up having to park about the half mile from the venue in a grassy field. With this event ending late at night and thousands of cars around us, how would we ever get back to our car? If you have an iPhone with iOS 7, then this predicament would not be a predicament at all.
