Tools and Resources Your Business NEEDS
As an entrepreneur, you’re likely always looking for ways to be more efficient, organized and effective with your precious time. I’m right there with you!
There are a million and one tools out there today to help you with that, and each one is designed slightly differently to suit each individual need.
I know it can be overwhelming to know where to start and which ones to try, so I thought it could be helpful to cover
There are 3 overarching categories that I believe are crucial for all business owners to utilize.
- A calendar scheduler
- A social media scheduler
- Project management software
Let’s dive into these a bit more…
Did you know on average it could take 8-14 emails to simply schedule a meeting?! Imagine how much time you waste trying to organize a time and place to meet with a customer, client or even long lost friend!! That’s why I love using a calendar scheduler like Calendly or Acuity to make it SUPER easy and effortless.
Social Media Scheduler
We all want to be consistent, but sometimes life just gets in the way. Whether you’re an “in the moment” poster or the planning type, having a scheduler is something I LOVE using in my business because it helps me stay consistent and outline what I want my feed an posts to look like. I personally use Later.com, but have also heard good things about Planoly!
Project Management Software
This is SUPER important, and if you’re not currently using a project management software, get ready to have your LIFE changed - especially if you have a team. There are tons out there, but some of the most common are Asana, Monday.com and I’m currently using one called ClickUp. These will help you stay ultra organized, by managing people, timelines and projects.
- A little bonus tip: If you have a Gmail account - try the plugin Streak, it’s a completely free software that helps you snooze emails, create snippets, and organize your inbox!
Do your research and take advantage of the free trials that are available to make sure these resources work for you and your needs.
