Use trial programs. Most software program offer free trials. Take advantage of these to make sure that you need and want the program. Download the trial version and read the fine print. Many of the most popular programs simply notify you that you must purchase the program at the end of a specific time period. You can then make your decision. Others automatically bill you after a certain time. If that is the case, mark your calendar to cancel the program before that date. Sometimes, the thirty days were all you needed!

Activities Directors Love Our Classes and So Do Their Members
I am very excited to share my ideas with the Activities Director community. I developed Deerfield Marketing’s fun classes for your community and other communities like you where the Activity Director is faced with the challenge of find new, innovative programs for their residents.
As the Grandma of seven, a public speaker and entertainer since age 12, I makes every minute of every class a positive experience. As a small business owner, I know how busy people are. I have juggled being an entrepreneur, wife, mom and grandma for over forty years.
Whether you are an Activities Director, Park District Manager, or anyone planning meaningful activities for groups of people, my goal is to share my computer, organizational, smart phone and tablet tips and tricks with everyone and to help them keep up with the technology of the 21st century.
Customized Classes are also available.
I promise every Activities Director the same thing: If your members can turn on a computer, smart phone or tablet, I can take them into a uncomplicated, useful world of technology.
