QR Code, Google Voice, and Business Phone Line, woot!

I purchased the iPhone4 in August 2010 in order to use Facetime for iPhone and conduct mobile counseling and consult sessions to help my clients stay in touch, keep regular sessions, or find a therapist even if they live in a remote area of the country.

Next came my Google Voice number. You can call 425-200-5271, and if I can’t answer, calls to my mobile or my Google Voice account get transferred into a text message, making it easier for me to answer urgent calls on break without having to listen through all my messages.

Finally, I’ll be adding a second line. The current mobile number will become the dedicated business line, and a new number will be for personal use only. For some time, I’ve used one line for EVERYTHING, much to the chagrin of family and close friends. That, like everything else with technology, must change.

In any case, you’ll have more ways to get a hold of me. And that’s good news for you!

BTW, next time you stop by my office, you’ll see a QR code in the window. Use any standard QR code reader on your Android or iPhone, and you’ll pull up my mobile number and URL. No more wondering if you have my number on you if you’re outside my office. Just add it to your contact list.
