I created clever conversations as a platform where I can engage with like-minded small business owners who want to change the world by growing and scaling their business. If that sounds like you, #BeClever and subscribe to our newsletter! Today I want to start the conversation by asking,
Why did you start your business?
For me it was simple. I wanted to share my knowledge of best practices and proven growth strategies with other entrepreneurs.
I also wanted to build a business that allowed me to spend time with my family and provide a financial stability that would secure our future over the years. I’ve come across a few tools that have really helped me to organize my life increase productivity in my business and ultimately improve my time management.
Dropbox is great for storing files, but if you’re like me you’re constantly taking notes, making lists, researching topics online. I needed a way to access that all of that information on the go. Evernote helps me do that. Evernote allows you to write notes, make lists, and save links to online articles or websites I may want to revisit later.
Of course I also use my own website as a tool to increase productivity. My website is a central hub for my team to store information, communicate with clients and prospective buyers, and even process payments.
Having an FAQ page on my website really decreases the amount of time I have to spend answering questions. It saves time and gives my customers access to information about our company even when our office is closed for business.
