In this episode, Eve and Corinne address the topic of tools; not necessarily CAT tools, but tools of all kinds that help us work more productively and keep us happy. We talk about tool categories such as editing and proofreading, images and image manipulation, incorporating, hiring service providers to work with you, and listening to music (important during a quarantine!).
