My Go-To source for Automation Tips

MacAutomationTips is now my go-to source for researching new apps to improve my efficiency for my legal business. I've learned the valuable lesson that if I can figure out even a minor hack to be more efficient-- that minor hack can save hundreds of hours of inefficient work. Taking the BetterTouchTool course helped me automate tasks so I could spend more time face to face with my legal customers and my family rather than wasted in front of the computer.

Bakari! Just wanted to send you a huge shout of thanks for your site and for your Better Touch Tool course. I feel like I have entered a whole new world! Thanks for taking the time to create the course. BTT is so incredibly powerful, and I can't believe how much faster it is than almost everything else. You rock! PS I would really love to see you do a course on Keyboard Maestro. Your teaching style is great, and I don't feel like anyone has really done a great KM course anywhere yet.
