SCORE Austin Chapter 249 

Get Organized Using Free Software

Jan will show you how to take a project, break it down into manageable tasks, and schedule the tasks using the free software, Trello. The concept stays the same, whichever software you decide to use. Your project could be setting up a marketing plan with social media, a plan to get funding, or just a plan to get your week organized so you don’t miss something important. Whatever the project, the method is to break it into tasks, set it up in the software, and get the daily notifications of what needs to be completed.

Before the workshop: Please create a Trello account and a coggle.it account. Be ready to access and play with the software in class. Both of these are free resources.
