How do busy women get it all done? Creativity. Energy. The right tools. That's my key to success. Tomorrow I'm celebrating all of these at a special event with Microsoft Office 365.

As I type this, I am flying back from Seattle after three days of getting a glimpse of all the amazing things Microsoft is doing to help all of us get things done. I saw products and services that are aimed to help me be more efficient. While I'm 10,000 feet in the air, I have access to all my files thanks to SkyDrive--where I store my important notes. I can and DO work anywhere. With my Office365 subscription, I get 20GB SkyDrive storage, and I stash my notes, photos, and files. I'm able to get a jump on my week in the sky so when I get home to the kids I can focus on being mommy.

I'm admit I am a tad over-scheduled. Tomorrow, I head to the Noguchi Museum, but thanks to Office365 on my phone, I can access all my files on the go. When I work on the phone, it'll sync up to SkyDrive and I constantly have the most current information on OfficeMobile for my DROID phone.

According to a recent study conducted online by Harris Interactive on behalf of Microsoft, more than half of office workers (53%) would be willing to work more hours – and one in five would be willing to take a pay cut – to have more flexibility in where and when they got work done. Not only that, but nearly one in five office workers (19%) admit that they have worked while going to the bathroom. As a business owner, I traded in a reliable income for creativity and flexibility. Thankfully I've got the right tools to get it all done.
