Show Notes

In this episode I talked to Samantha Postman @SamanthaPostman about automating creator workflows for capturing meeting notes. I met Samantha in a writing class called #Ship30for30, where she continuously posted class notes into the chat. In this session Samantha tells us how she was doing this so quickly and without getting distracted from the class.

Samantha talks about why automation is so cool, tools she uses, and how she combines the tools to create powerful workflows.

1/ @Otter_ai: Transcribes speech to text. Useful for capturing meeting notes and for brainstorming on walks.
