This episode is also brought to you by Trello. During tough times like these, one thing that brings us all together is our common humanity. Another is technology. Now, more than ever, teams must come together and work together virtually to handle challenges, opportunities, and everything in between. And Trello is here to help. Trello, part of Atlassian’s collaborative suite, is an app with an easy-to-understand visual format and tons of features that make working with your team more functional and more fun. Teams of all shapes and sizes — and companies like Google, Fender, and even Costco — all use Trello to collaborate and get work done. It’s one of the few tools that has made the cut with my team.
With Trello, you can work with your team wherever you are, whether it’s at home or in an office. And no matter what device you’re using — computer, tablet, or phone — Trello syncs across all of them so you can stay up to date on all the things your team cares about. Keep your workflow going from wherever you are with Trello. Try Trello for FREE and learn more at trello.com/tfs!
