This episode is brought to you by Basecamp. You’re working on a team project via email. When more than a few people or files are added, things fall apart and become a mess. Someone misses a CC update. Another person adds many people to the thread, even though most don’t belong.

Not to mention the coworker who starts a new thread about the same thing. Someone would call a meeting to fix the mess and start a new version. Email is great for one-on-one communication but terrible for project management.

Basecamp helps makes it easier to manage projects everyone can do: You start a project, post a description on the message board, and let everyone else catch up.

Messages are posted on the bulletin board. Someone posts a quick question in the chat. When sharing a file, everyone can see the latest version in Basecamp. Communication works.

Basecamp streamlines project collaboration. Basecamp reduces email and meetings. Start a free 30-day trial at basecamp.com/adriantan. You can cancel online without a credit card.

This episode is brought to you by Zencastr. During the pandemic, I considered restarting my podcast after five episodes in 2016. Zoom wasn’t ideal for recording the podcast. Intermittent connection issues worsened the sound quality.

Zencastr saved me. It provides crystal clear sounds recorded locally before being pushed to the cloud. You won’t have to worry about connection problems affecting audio quality.
Complicated tools are useless. Zencastr is web-based and not downloadable. Zencastr is browser-based, so anyone can use it.
