Being a successful entrepreneur means taking responsibility for ensuring that your products and / or services are up to scratch, pleasing your customers, multitasking on a daily basis, and everything else in between.
Although it may sound overwhelming there are many sources of support and guidance, and it makes sense to use all of the tools at your disposal if you are to stay organised. Below, we take a look at some of the best apps guaranteed to make your life easier and help keep your eye on the prize.
Evernote is free to download and makes it possible for you to keep track of things like your business expenses, meetings and more. You can even use it to create impressive slideshow presentations!
We’re pretty sure that you’ve heard of Skype by now! But did you know that it can be an invaluable business tool as well as an awesome platform for chatting to your pals? Skype makes it easy for you to keep in touch with clients / customers, suppliers, partners etc. with its affordable video calling and handy chat function. Meetings-on-the-move have never been simpler!
This is another free app that can help you to improve your business acumen. The secret to becoming a successful entrepreneur lies in ensuring that you are able to stay in the loop. Keep up with trends and happenings in the market by using Audible to actually listen to important articles, books and news reports. Great for when you don’t have the time to sit and read them yourself!
While all of these apps are excellent tools to have and to use, what better way in which to keep your business going than by creating one yourself? Take local SA entrepreneur, Chris Faur, and his new start-up app, CarTrip, for example. Chris took action after discovering an important gap in the South African carpooling market and has been pegged as someone to watch out for in 2017. You can read more about his story here.
