075. Best Apps for EntHERpreneurs in 2017




Technology has made it easier for entrepreneurs to accomplish routine tasks, manage time more efficiently and keep track of responsibilities in a more orderly fashion. Being an entHERpreneur is not an easy job. Managing the product, the team and everything around it takes not only a lot of time but also creativity.


Here is a list of my favorite apps and some recommendations from my colleagues:


CashFlow Manager

The CashFlow Manager is an online cash flow management system which records, organizes and stores all of your business and personal financial transactions. The system was developed to simplify tracking your income and tax deductible business expenses so you can minimize your taxes and save time. Some key features are 256 bit encryption and physical security banks use to protect your data, it tracks income and expenses for business and home, it captures and stores receipts online, has pre-set and customizable income and expense categories, it tracks multiple businesses in one account and has recurring entry feature to minimize work


Canva

Canva is a tool loaded with enough easy-to-use features and functionality that anyone can create a variety of engaging content that gets shared. You can easily create beautiful designs and documents such as presentations, social media graphics, book covers and so much more. Use Canva's drag-and-drop feature and professional layouts to design consistently stunning graphics.


Facebook Ads Manager

Do you have a Facebook business page? Have you been advertising on Facebook? If no, why not? Facebook took another step for advertisers to manage their accounts anywhere by developing Facebook Ads Manager. With Facebook’s Ads Manager app you can pause and resume campaigns, budgets and schedules, view insights, and respond to alerts. Also, you can easily track all ad performance, create ads and edit existing ones, receive push notifications etc.


LISTEN

Another productivity app to consider is LISTEN. LISTEN's innovative app utilizes ringback tone technology to respond to incoming calls when you’re too busy to answer the phone. Its latest release features auto SMS reply capabilities which, when enabled, respond to both inbound calls and incoming text messages. You can also customize both your voice and SMS responses, sync your auto replies with your meetings with the calendar integration function and Location Detection, which responds to calls and text messages based on your geographic location. If that’s not awesome enough LISTEN also has a “drive mode,” which will play a status message informing callers (and texters) when you’re behind the wheel.


Dashlane Password Manager

Never forget another password with Dashlane, Dashlane organizes and keeps track of all your passwords in one secure place. Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Periscope, Thinkific, and Gmail... - these are just a few places where I have accounts, both personal and business. I cannot imagine how I would remember all those passwords, especially when, in certain services, you have to change them once in a while. For this reason I am so thankful for Dashlane to protecting them and not making me remember all those combinations.


KillsNewsFeed

KillsNewsFeed does just that, it saves you time by disabling your Facebook news feed and replacing it with a message reminding you not to get distracted. That's it. You can still check your messages and notifications, post status updates, and do everything you could do before. You just won't get distracting news feed posts anymore. That means no more wasting time on Facebook. No more getting distracted when you log on to send a message. It's that simple.
