Clients and colleagues always ask me what things I use in my business to save time and money. And I ask them as well! If there’s something out there that will make my life easier, I want to know about it.
So, in order to help you save time and run your work-at-home business smoothly, I want to share the apps, tools and software that I use in my business every day.
Dropbox: I save all of my files in Dropbox. I love that it’s in the cloud so that I can access client or personal files from my desktop, laptop or phone.
Freshbooks: This is great for invoicing as well as tracking your work. I also use it to track my expenses.
Canva and PicMonkey: These are both fabulous for touching up photos or creating graphics for blog posts, social media posts, presentations and marketing materials. And they’re super easy to use, even if design isn’t your thing.
Google– Docs, Gmail, Chrome browser: I’m kind of in love with all things Google because they really do make my life easier.
Evernote: I use this for lists, notes, recipes, saving snippets from websites, blog post ideas—you name it, I save it in Evernote.
There are so many more tools that I use, but these are the ones I tend to use daily. Now it’s your turn. What’s a tool or app you can’t live without in order to run your business? Share in the comments below.
