I’m thrilled to announce the launch of my new video course on Udemy.com. Evernote – Quick & Easy was designed for everyone who feels that *should* use Evernote but haven’t because it looks too clunky or not intuitive enough.

Dennis’ course sells for $499 but because he knows I help so many writers who are just getting started – and who don’t have that kind of cash on hand – he gave me a code for readers of this blog to get the course for seven bucks.
