As I mentioned before, I share these Small Business Productivity Tips because I have found them helpful in my small business. They improve organization and make tasks easier as well as take less time to do. I love automating processes. As a small business owner, executive, or employee, if you create lengthy documents, you will love the ease of making a table of contents.
The beauty of creating a table of contents in Microsoft Word is that once you created your headings, as taught in SBPT #7, you have the elements needed to swiftly and easily put one in place. By the way, you need the Headings (H tags) defined in Styles, not custom styles. You can, however, redefine each heading level.
I prefer the manual table because I use Heading 4 a lot and want them to show in the table.
NOTE: The different lines in a table of contents created this way work as hyperlinks to the specific content you want to jump to. In Microsoft Word, hold the <Ctrl> key while you click on the line.
By the way, this post is a transcript of the video as I read it to create the video.

I have a strong love for small businesses, especially brick and mortar companies. After an 18-year career in sales and marketing, I started my own service company, which I grew in both sales and profits for the first five years. In my sixth year, the bottom dropped out of the printer market such that it made more sense to sell my assets and return to Southern California. There I went to work for an international small business consulting company. I spent over three years on the road with them helping small businesses to become more profitable and better managed. I then started my own company specializing in sales and marketing consulting, coaching and training. My emphasis is on heart-centered, relationship selling that empowers prospects to make their own choices.
