3 Best Apps for Small Business
The life of a parentpreneur can be extremely hectic. From scheduling meetings, making appointments, emails, deadlines, to taking care of children, cleaning and cooking, the list goes on. It sometimes feels impossible to mentally digest everything.
If you’re anything like me you may have loads of apps on your phone. From social media apps to organisers and to do lists, everyone has their favourites. So I thought I would share with you 3 of the best apps for small businesses that I use on a daily basis, to help keep me organised and on-track throughout the day.
Tech applications and their ease of functionality can make our day to day lives so much easier with just the simple click of a button.
In no particular order, we have:
Trello is a collaboration tool that organises your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in any given process.
Sometimes we are not always sat at our computer working; we often have to work on the go. Trello makes it easy to keep a grip on all the different projects and collaborations you are working on. Trello syncs with the work on your computer and notifies you when one of your team members updates.
There is so much more to Trello, and Skillshare has a range of mini videos you can watch to see its full capabilities. There are other options out there such as Asana and more

The awesome reminder + timer app that is alarmingly great! It includes pop-up reminder alerts with robust repeat scheduling, flexible snooze and full customization. As well as pop-up timers with custom messages, countdown/countup options, and timer queues.
What I love about this app is that it’s focused on empowering you to get things done. A couple of ways I use this app are to remind me of Twitter hours on twitter that I may want to take part in. I also use this app to remind me when one of my children is due totheir medication. Life can get so busy that you can easily forget things you are meant to do.
Alarmed also has a “Relentless Nag-Me” feature that’ll keep repeating a reminder until you mark it as completed. You can set the app to nag you about your task once every minute or once every hour. This nag-me feature is very handy for critical tasks that occur during busy times of your day, its incessant reminder ensures you will complete the task, even when you are juggling ten other things.

There are many benefits and disadvantages to receiving email on your mobile phone, let’s face it mobile phones have become a vital piece of business and even home equipment for many business owners.
Some of the benefits are:
- Good customer service, this is particular useful if you have a business where you have a set timeframe of when you respond to your customers
- Increased productivity
- Working remotely (e.g. working from home or away from the office)
- They can become a distraction, especially if you are spending quality time with your family
- If clients and customers get used to you responding to their emails on a regular basis within a quick time scale, it can get them into a routine. What happens if you can’t respond within that timeframe?
There are so many great apps for your phone that you can download today to help your small business get more organised. It was hard to narrow it down, but below are a couple that I have recently started using.

LUCKY BITCH MONEY TRACKER
If you want to manifest more money in your life, you have to track every single penny AND keep a gratitude journal of all your good fortune. The Lucky Bitch Money Tracker does exactly that. I downloaded this app via a recommendation, and just so you know it’s not an accounting app. So far I am loving this app; it’s great for setting money-related goals.
