Have you ever noticed that a lot of successful entrepreneurs recommend like, a million tools to keep their businesses running? How in the world do they manage all their management tools??!!
You need tools to run your business, but don’t let your tools run you! (Click to tweet!)
I know it can feel really overwhelming to figure out which small business tools you need, and which ones you can live without.
In today’s episode of She Takes on the World TV, I’m going to share with you the THREE (that’s right, just three) amazing tools that are absolutely essential to keeping my business running. Check it out:

Let’s recap. Here are the three small business tools that my team and I cannot live without. You’re going to love them:
- Infusionsoft: Bills itself as an “all-in-one” sales and marketing tool, and wow does it deliver! Now, I didn’t switch to Infusionsoft until I had several thousand people on my list, but it’s allowed me to grow my business significantly by offering all the features and functionality I could ever dream of as I launch products and programs, and host free training and events. Before I was ready to make the big step to Infusionsoft, I used Aweber for my email software and I still love it, too.
- Asana: An elegantly simple, but super powerful, task manager and customer service management system that we use for pretty much everything in our business right now. My team uses it on a daily basis to communicate and make sure everyone is working on what they need to be working on.
- QuickBooks: This is a finance tool that I’m (admittedly) not an expert in because I leave all that fun stuff to my finance and accounting team. It’s an essential tool to giving you financial empowerment to make really good decisions about your business. Related to this, I do personally use Shoeboxed to gather up all my receipts as I’m traveling so that they can be scanned and exported to Quickbooks – so simple and easy! I feel I’ve got to give them an honorable mention here because I love them!
My business really doesn’t need much beyond these tools, even as we grow, and I’m of the mindset that the fewer we have to use the better.
