Many years ago, I was audited by the IRS.
It was awful.
Letters and phone calls kept coming, telling me that I needed to produce all sorts of documents, forms, and other paperwork.
I remember standing in my garage, surrounded by file boxes full of piles of loose documents,
"That stupid paper has got to be here somewhere."
The audit itself was... unpleasant. No surprise there.
But, the clutter made it almost unbearable.
These days, things are different.
Almost without exception, any important piece of paper I receive can easily be found in the smart phone in my pocket.
And on my tablet.
And my laptop.
Oh yeah, on the web, too.
If you asked me to produce my last three tax returns, I could do it in a couple of minutes from anywhere in the world with nothing more than an Internet connection.
Likewise for my kids' baby pictures, the confirmation from the Irish hotel where I stayed a few winters ago, and the leases for my last three houses.
I've been using it for years and it's incredible. The piles of paper are gone from my life and now everything is in a virtual filing cabinet that I can quickly search anytime from just about anywhere.
I don't want this to sound like a cliché, but Evernote really did change my life.
Problem is, it doesn't come with an owner's manual...
When you open the app for the first time, there's a blank page waiting for you, and you're not sure what exactly to do.
So, I made the manual that should have come with Evernote.
It's called Evernote Essentials. And it's unlike any other software manual you've ever read (really).

Evernote Essentials is an amazing resource...
Like a genie in a bottle
Have you ever misplaced your keys?
You walk in the door from an errand and set them down in an unusual place, or maybe they fell out of your pocket unnoticed.
Either way, you've just gone from zero to annoyed, and fast.
You'd turn your house upside down looking for them and, hopefully, they'd turn up. But you probably spent way too long looking for them.
Now imagine standing at your front door and hollering "bring me my keys" at nobody in particular — and your keys magically appear in the palm of your hand.
That's Evernote with your important documents, records, memories, just about anything digital that's important to you.
Ask Evernote and, like the genie in the bottle, your wish is granted.
But you have to know how to ask.
That's just one of the tactics I'll teach you in this 200+ page guide...
Brett is an absolute master at explaining complex concepts in a way that makes them easy to understand.

An exceptional book with a lot of helpful content. A bargain.

This book was MUCH more informative, and calming, than any of the 'less expensive' e-books I initially purchased.

And, actually, Evernote agreed because...
Evernote hired me to write their user documentation after reading Evernote Essentials.
(And they're still pretty big fans)
