Feel Like a "Dummy"? We Have a Book for That!

Frustrated Office Workers

There are many new things out there that we would all like to try, but then phrases of doubt like “It’s too hard.” or “I am in way over my head!” pop into our minds.

Technology is becoming more complicated at such a quick pace that it is hard to keep up! And many of us that are 45 and older have an even harder time because we did not grow up with the internet being a standard part of our lives.

But not all hope is lost. For just about everything that you want to try or learn, there is a “dummies” book that can help you out!
