Every Sunday, we have a family skype call with my parents, my brother, my aunt and us. It’s great to touch base once a week and it’s so important to keep in touch.
Skype has virtually eliminated my long distance charges. I also use it at work when meeting with clients out of town and even when talking to clients in town (it saves me cell phone minutes) and it’s saves on meeting times.
And if you’re not ready for your close up – you can opt out of video and just chat by audio – so it’s like a hands free phone.
It’s a great tool and I’m grateful that I have it. I’m not sure I understand their business model but it certainly helps with mine.
