Laurel Thomsen leads a charmed life. For over half of the year she travels the world, giving violin performances across the U.S., Europe, and Canada. She performs in concert halls, at festivals, in living rooms, and once even for the resident ghosts of Western Canada’s oldest theater—frequented by the likes of Charlie Chaplin. The remainder of the year she spends at her home base in Santa Cruz, California, teaching violin lessons, composing music, and plotting her next musical escapade. When asked what’s her secret, Laurel responds without hesitation, “Skype!”

Laurel is part of a growing network of professional consumers who use Skype as an integral tool to connect with potential clients, share their professional service, and supercharge their homegrown businesses.
月桂树是一个日益增长的网络专业的消费者使用Skype与潜在客户联系不可或缺的工具,分享他们的专业服务,和增压的本土企业。

“I’ve pretty much played violin my whole life—I’ve always wanted to do something creative, but it was just a matter of figuring out how I was going to create a career with music,” says Laurel.
“我已经差不多拉小提琴,我的整个生命中我总是想做些有创意,但它只是一个问题搞清楚我要用音乐创造了职业生涯,”劳蕾尔说。

After 13 years of teaching in-person violin lessons, in 2009 Laurel discovered Skype to keep in contact with students who had relocated or moved during the course of her tutelage. She soon began teaching full lessons over Skype and has never looked back.
在13年的亲身小提琴课教学后,2009岁的月桂发现了Skype,与在她训练期间搬迁或搬迁的学生保持联系。她很快就开始用Skype教授完整的课程,从来没有回头看。

“Skype is amazing because it’s allowed me to expand my performing career. Prior to teaching on Skype, I felt very limited in how much I could travel and who I could play with because I needed to be home teaching. Now I’m traveling six to eight months out of the year and keeping up with all of my students via Skype. Instead of only having local students, I also now have a worldwide client base, and I get students who I really am already the best fit for. They’ve already found me online and are really excited to take lessons with me. I now have students who are all over the world, in places like Australia, India, and Africa. It’s crazy to think that without Skype we would have never met. I’ve learned a lot more as a musician through the variety and caliber of my students over Skype.”
“Skype是令人惊异的,因为它让我扩展了我的演艺生涯。在Skype教学之前,我觉得自己在旅行和玩游戏方面的能力有限,因为我需要在家里教书。现在我每年旅行六到八个月,通过Skype与我所有的学生保持联系。我不仅拥有当地学生,而且现在有一个世界性的客户基础,我得到了我真正最适合的学生。他们已经在网上找到我,跟我一起上课真的很兴奋。我现在有世界各地的学生,在澳大利亚、印度和非洲等地。如果没有Skype我们就永远不会见面,这太疯狂了。作为一名音乐家,我通过Skype的学生的多样性和才干学到了很多东西。

No stranger to using Skype to expand a growing business, Laurel was also an alpha tester for the brand-new Skype Professional Account Preview app—a new tool specifically designed for professionals like Laurel. Skype Professional Account allows users to create a verifiable professional profile, schedule Skype calls with multiple clients, and manage payments directly through PayPal.
使用Skype来扩大业务增长并不陌生,Laurel也是一个alpha测试的全新的Skype帐户app-a专业预览新工具,专为专业人士如桂冠。Skype专业帐户允许用户创建一个可验证的专业配置,与多个客户安排Skype通话,并直接通过贝宝支付管理。

“I found it pretty cool, particularly the calendar features and the ability to integrate with PayPal. I used to go through my calendar manually and count lessons to determine payment, but with Skype Professional Account I was able to do the lesson and the payment in one seamless process. I love having it all in one place,” states Laurel.
“我觉得它很酷,特别是日历功能并整合与贝宝的能力。我曾经通过我的日历手动和计数的教训,以确定付款,但与Skype专业帐户,我能够做的教训和付款在一个无缝的过程。我喜欢把它都放在一个地方。

Skype Professional Account also enables business owners to take notes directly in the app, allowing for better organization, and most important for a growing business—save time. “I was spending a lot of time after the lessons taking and organizing inventory late into the evening. With Skype Professional Account, it can literally all happen in that lesson with just a few clicks.”
Skype的专业帐户还使企业主可以直接在应用程序中做笔记,从而可以更好地组织工作,而且对于不断增长的业务节省时间最为重要。“我在课上花了很多时间,直到晚上才把存货整理好。Skype专业帐户,它可以真正发生在这一课只需点击几下。
