When I first decided to become a freelance writer I knew I wanted to create content because I loved it. I love words!
Building a business can be challenging but there are a few options that make the tasks easier.
Work smarter not harder is what I always say, so if I can have software or some way to outsource; well then I’m all for it!
As an entrepreneur or business owner there are so many hats you have to wear, you may lose track of one or two during the month or quarter too.
I’ve compiled a few things that entrepreneurs, bloggers, and business owners a like can greatly benefit from.
In this handy list you’ll find programs to help make life simpler, keep track of everything with the click of a button, and help you keep your sanity.

Billing and invoicing – this is the most time consuming for me. It’s not that it’s hard but the fact that I just don’t like doing it and it’s so important. This software and I are best friends, if you will. It does all the work for me as I only have to push a few buttons.
Time tracking – I’m horrible at manually keeping up with my time, which is bad because ya know you like knowing what you’re making an hour so you don’t have to lower prices because you forget to track. If you’re not like me and you’re good at it this little tool will help keep you on track without a problem.
Payments – Oh payments, I love that word! This program makes it easy to collect payments quickly without any hassle.
Business cards – I love business cards! I love everything about them from designing to handing them out. This program makes it so easy to customize your own business cards. You can choose from different paper stocks, ink colors, fonts, even down to the edges of the card.
I use these tools on the daily, they’re like my best friends! It makes it convenient that I can also track side jobs that I get.
The holidays are coming up so if you let someone you know is a business owner or an entrepreneur, these would be great and unique gifts to give this year.
You’ll benefit from these 4 tools all year around, then like myself you’ll be in love with them and won’t understand how you ever lived without them.
