Technology changes fast and keeping up with it can sometimes be a daunting task. Maybe you've said to yourself, "I don't have time to learn another tool," or "I'm not tech savvy, I don't understand that stuff." If these sound familiar to you, you're in the right place. No Tech to Pro Tech is a podcast for people who find technology to be intimidating, but want to be able to use technology and digital tools to impact lives and help others through their businesses, organizations and passion projects. Hosted by Stephanie Ciardi, the Digital Problem Solver of Bobolink Creative, every episode is taking the intimidation out of technology so that you can be empowered to use the right technology + the right way.
S1E12 - Planning an event by using a spreadsheet
Have you ever planned an event and found it difficult to keep track of all the information you need? Maybe you had your guest list written on a piece of paper and had to manually total up your guests every time you got an RSVP. Spreadsheets don’t have to be just for CPA’s or the super analytical types. You can use spreadsheets in really practical ways like keeping track of guests, food, decorations, and everything else you need to plan your event.

I love the way she explains and makes it easy. The episode for using Evernote as a cookbook was awesome. I can't wait to get my recipes in order.
It is great to have a podcast that answers so many of my questions! I'm definitely full of questions about technology! No Tech To Pro Tech is such a helpful, easy to follow podcast! I was already able to use the information from several episodes, including "Using Google Docs, Instead of Microsoft Word" and "Scanning Without a Scanner". I was able to use the information to help me update my resume and cover letter, and also scan my transcripts to apply for a teaching position closer to home. It's been years since I have filled out applications and the entire process is a bit intimidating because everything is electronic! I couldn't have done it without No Tech To Pro Tech!
I'm looking forward to many more episodes!
No tech to pro tech is awesome. It's short, straight to the point, and full of excellent information. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who needs a podcast like this!
