If you ask any small business owner what they desire the most, they won’t say fame or even fortune, they will probably say, more time in the day!
What I find with many small business owners that I deal with is that they don’t leverage the many types of free applications that can help there day-to-day tasks, ultimately, giving them more time in the day. Many applications have free trials or often offer a nominal fee for the enormous value they give to the small business owner.
A couple of my favourite sites that I find tremendously useful are the following:
FreshBooks is an online invoicing, time tracking and expense tracking service that helps professionals in over 100 countries save time, get paid faster, look professional and focus on what they love to do — their work.
If you use more than one computer for your small business activities, say, a desktop computer, laptop or even a smartphone (e.g. Blackberry, iPhone), keeping track of all the files you create and edit can be difficult. Dropbox is a single secure place for all of your files to be located. It avoids having you to transfer files with USB and email files to yourself. It simply create one folder on your computer (usually located in you’re My Documents folder) and then syncs to your other computers. That’s it!
I suggest you take a look at these applications, I’m confident you’ll find tremendous value in them.
Be careful of your time. Be real.
