One of my more popular presentations is called “The Virtual Agency.” In that presentation, I explore the various options available today for creating a 21st-century “office.” As consumer expectations change from physical face-to-face to browsing a website, to interacting via a mobile device, it may be time for you to rethink what your physical office looks like and whether you need a physical location.
I’ve been thinking about this for quite some time, and probably agree with what you’re feeling right now — there are some excellent reasons to have a physical office location. I have a physical office separate from my home. It’s not very big, nor very fancy, but it is a place I go “to work” when I’m not traveling. It actually might be accurate to consider it my “man cave.” You see, I realized some time ago that I am more productive and can concentrate better in a work environment.

Amazon’s Kindle is the most popular eBook reader. Many know how easy it is (sometimes too easy!) to purchase and download a new book onto their Kindle device. I like using a Kindle because it is easy, lightweight, and allows me to quickly highlight key points and take notes.
But, what about other documents that are not traditional books? These could be a PDF document, a report you want to review, or any other type of document that you want to take with you on your Kindle. Amazon has had a way to send documents to a Kindle for some time. Every Kindle device has a unique email address you can use to attach a document and send it to your device.
This does work fine. However, Amazon has made it just a little bit easier to get a document onto your Kindle by using Send to Kindle (for both Windows and Mac) as an option in Windows Explorer.
