In Part 1 of this Office Show, Tina and Laura used Office 365 to get their dog grooming business up and running with email, calendars and shared documents. In Part 2, they step up their game and create their own website, edit a Word doc simultaneously and set up a customer database in Access. Cool things for sure, but will it be enough to fight their ruthless corporate dog-washing competitors? Watch to find out...
So what is Office 365 and how can it help your small business? This Office Show answers those questions with a special two-part episode, wherein our heroines Laura and Tina start a business from scratch with Office 365.

Huge congrats to author Jennifer Egan, whose novel A Visit from the Goon Squad just earned the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Jennifer was a guest of the Office Show late last year, and spoke to us at length about how important PowerPoint was in formulating her book.
A Visit from the Goon Squad features an entire chapter written in PowerPoint, and to hear Jennifer talk about it, it was a key chapter in forming the structure of the book. She also wrote a special blog post for us, detailing her top tips for storytelling with PowerPoint. Since then, her book has racked up dozens of awards and landed on just about every major "top 10" list, but the Pulitzer is obviously the big one. Congratulations, Jennifer!
