Improving your productivity is essential if you want to be a successful entrepreneur. While some would ignore this, true entrepreneurs maximize their time and energy by taking advantage of the many available tools that we have access to in this digital age. Yes, you may not have an active staff or a workforce yet but you can have these 5 apps that will improve your entrepreneurial success.
If you’re working with a team, this is the best communication tool on the market. The app is collaborative and makes information or instructions available for your team, even when you are on the go. Its free format is already amazing, with connected plugins to Trello, Google Drive, and many other apps.
Business success is about people. It is why the right connections could benefit your success; you need to build social capital. But sometimes we may be so busy or occupied that it becomes difficult to keep track of who, where, and how we met someone. And who knows? This person might mean a potential new client/customer, investment, or partnership. The Humin app handles your contacts and helps keep the tiny details of how and where you met someone. Instead of getting stuck and trying to find information later, Humin reminds you of how and where you met someone by combining your contacts, dialing, and voice mailbox to improve your list and identify who your important contacts are.
As an entrepreneur, you could be traveling to a new city to meet with investors or clients. Of course, you need to understand the terrain. With Weatherbug, you can have a forecast for your neighborhood and whatever location you are visiting. It is available in many cities around the world.
It takes knowledge to enter the field of entrepreneurship. Most entrepreneurs are well-read and have never-ending curiosity. Audible offers knowledge on-the-go, as you are able to listen to the books that make you more informed and better prepared to deal with the challenges on your entrepreneurial journey.
Lastpass is your personal password manager. It can be difficult remembering all your passwords, since some of them are a combination of several letters and numbers, and, of course, as an entrepreneur you are busy. Certainly, it becomes easier for you to remember your password with such a tool.
With Wave, you can create invoices and send them to your clients. The app does it in seconds, which means that you can efficiently run your business, track income as well as your expenses. This tool is equipped with a suite of online small-business software products that will help you to be better organized with your daily transactions.
