Welcome to the first Tech Talk Tuesday.
Most readers of this blog are self-employed in some fashion. If you are, you probably know that there are hassles that come with being self-employed. One of the biggest is the amount of paper that seems to stack up. Bank accounts, taxes, investments, payrolls, lawyers, receipts, bills, invoices the list goes on.

2) Get an Evernote account. It’s free to try, but you’re going to want to upgrade to get the search within documents.

The Fujitsu ScanSnap allows you to 1-button scan directly into Evernote. Evernote allows you to search within all of your documents even if they are just scanned PDFs, as well as tag them however you want.
