Technology To Improve The Way I Conduct Business

This post is sponsored by Best Buy – All opinions are my own.

I am very busy – always traveling somewhere for some reason.  I work as an urban public school business administrator during the day but then I head to the farm to spend time with my kids and horses – as well as do all our chores.  Once we are done we head home so I can work on my blogging.  We are often on the road for horse shows, camping, hiking etc… All of these are opportunities for me to take my work with me.

However, for me to even consider taking my work with me, I must have reliable technology.  This technology must be flexible and adaptable.  I have recently found the Google Pixelbook and I am very excited about all it has to offer and how much my business will benefit by having appropriate technology.  The less time I spend struggling with technology – the more I can be efficient and effective.

I am very excited about the Pixelbook!  It is the new high performance Chromebook along with the Pixelbook Pen.  The Pen is a smart, responsive stylus to help make my work even easier.  With the built in Google Assistant I will be able to work smarter and faster.  I absolutely love the ultra thin design making it the ultimate in portability.  I will be able to just place it in my tote bag and head out on the road.  It is complete with Chrome OS and a collection of apps.

The built in Google Assistant is accessible with a dedicated Google Assistant key on the keyboard or simply by using the “Ok Google” wake word or even with the Pixelbook Pen1 : simply press and hold the button, then tap the pen on Pixelbook’s screen to get help from your Assistant.

Just how thin is this Pixelbook?  Just 10.3mm and complete with aluminum construction to enhance its portability.  It also has a 360° touchscreen and 4-in-1 design so it can easily be adjusted to anything I am doing. It can be used to sketch or edit photos, stay productive with GSuite apps that Drive automatically backs up to the device, and enjoy on-or-offline access to movies and TV shows with apps like Google Play Movies and YouTube Red.

Chrome OS offers the latest security and has automatic software updates in the background.  It is ready to go quickly and starts up in less than 10 seconds which allows up to ten hours of use on a single charge with a fast charging, all day battery.

I use Google Drive all the time and this device allows access to all the Google Drive apps and allows for downloads from YouTube Red and Google Play to be enjoyed without Wi-Fi.
