Already using Google for work? For multiple clients? For home? It’s a pain switching back and forth between accounts. Here’s how to set up bookmarks to take you directly to the different Google accounts, including Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Photos and Google+.
Email. The bane of our existence but something no business can exist without. Like a wild animal, email can be tamed and turned into something that we manage, rather than being managed by.
