The Google Academy-

Home Stager with Room Service Home Staging

Yesterday, Patsy Overton wrote a great and informative post  on what she learned at the Google Academy.   I couldn't wait to "Google" it and find out if it might be coming to South Florida.  If you want more information you can go to to learn more about what they have to offer.

Think you know everything about Google?  Hey I don't even think THEY know everything... yet.  I'm sure there's more to come.  One thing that Patsy shared with us was Google's FREE 411 Directory Assistance.  And, still if you haven't read her post, and the follow up one today,  please treat yourself and head that way.  Whether you're a Realtor, Home Stager, Home Inspector, Mortgage Specialist or any other Professional, we can all use this tool! also has training for Educators and Small Business Owners.  If you go to the site they share a daily tip, for example, today's tip was the FREE 411 Info phone number.  If there isn't an "academy" in your local area, they offer remote training as well as Group and On-site training.

Below is a schedule from their site.

Now, this doesn't take the place of RainCamp or the ActiveRain University ... knowledge is power, so why not take advantage of all there is to learn out there!!

Hi Anna- it looks like there is.  I haven't had a chance to investigate further but I also bet there's one in Houston.

Roger- "google" became a verb of mine long ago! 

C- many thanks!!!

John- Hope you find something helpful there.

Richard- Be sure to get there as she shared a lot of information. 

Debbie- Don't we all.  At least here at ActiveRain you can get condensed versions.

Christine- I've already added the Google 411 number to my phone.  Think how many times we call 411 and are charged for it!

Malcolm- I didn't know about it either until I read Patsy Overton's post.

I think googling has become a national pastime.  I needed a phone number the other day and foolishly pulled out a phone book.  I couldn't find what I needed and after three attempts I said, "why don't I just google it" and sure enough there it and easy.  Whoever thought that one day finding someone online would be easier than a phonebook?

Sharon- I end up recycling my phone books as soon as I receive them.  It is just so much easier to "google" something.

Rebecca- I'm glad you're going to read it.  She posts about some other hints she learned that could be useful.

Phil- Don't forget to put the 411 number in your phone!
