Having worked with many entrepreneurs and startups over the years, I’ve heard about all sorts of apps, tips and tools across just about every category of running a small business.|
Sometimes clients, particularly new companies that are just getting established, ask: are there any basic tools that you might recommend? This question comes in from a range of business owners, from solo practitioners to entrepreneurs with a “virtual office” with a handful of colleagues working from their homes across the country.
When you are running a business on a shoestring budget, service subscriptions can get expensive. That said, even the smallest businesses need an arsenal of tools to help run the business efficiently to maximize time and profits. And, as with everything in business, the ROI needs to be there for it all. With smaller businesses, the threshold for trying services that cost something is different than for larger businesses with more resources to experiment and sample more expensive tools.
