Small Business Must-Haves

17hats - Manage contracts, questionnaires, time-tracking, invoicing, accept payments, bookkeeping and more. 17hats is the Swiss Army Knife of small business management.

Asana - I manage all of my client projects in Asana. It's high-powered virtual to-do list that keeps everyone on the same page and streamlines communication on tasks.

LastPass - Quit blurting out passwords in emails and start securely storing and sharing login credentials with Lastpass.

GSuite - Get your own you@yourdomain.com email address and use it with Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Hangouts, and Docs.

odrive - Sync Google Drive (or other cloud storage) with your computer, so files you work on update in Drive automatically.

Squarespace - The best way to get your business online. If you don't have time to screw around with a website constantly (I'm looking at you, Wordpress) get on Squarespace. It just works.

Teachable - Create beautiful, professional eCourses. Teachable hosts your entire course, sales page, and handles payments.
