As online business owners, we are constantly looking for tools to help our businesses grow and to make our lives easier.  Below are some of our favorites that we couldn't live without.

Teamwork Projects is the glue that keeps Reynolds OBM together.  This is the best project management software for teams.  Not only can you track tasks, who they are assigned to and how long they took on a project, but your dashboard will show everything across all of your projects so you really know what's going on.

Slack keeps everyone in the know and is a must for our virtual team.  Need to discuss something right now and want to avoid a meeting (ugh with all the meetings), send a message in chat.  The best part though is how it brings virtual teams from all over the world together to chat about their day, argue over whether the new Star Wars thing is good or not and what time happy hour is.

We use Quickbooks Online for our clients' and our own books.  You don't need to be an accountant to track you income and expenses.  Set up a payment account and you can receive payments directly from your invoice with credit cards or no fee ACH! (which basically pays for the subscription!).  This link will give you a 70% off for 3 months!!!!!!

Everyone knows that they should keep their passwords safe.  And yet so many people still have a spreadsheet with all the passwords listed laying around somewhere. Probably with their bank login info.  Be smarter and get LastPass.  It's an encrypted vault where you can share passwords to your team safely.

Virtual teams need virtual meetings to stay connected and on track.  What you don't need is some complicated system no one can use.  Zoom is easy, has tons of features and integrates with other apps to make you life easier. You can also use it to record videos (or meetings to make sure you remember what actually happened.)

Have you ever tried to set up a meeting and it took 5 emails back and forth.  Think about all the wasted time spent when you could have Acuity automate it for you!  A prospect clicks on a simple link, picks a time and gets a confirmation without you lifting a finger.  Want to send a questionnaire or take a deposit? Easy enough.

When you are running a business there is so much to do. Don't you wish you could automate sending out contracts, proposals, invoices and the email sequences that go with them? How much time would it save if your client onboarding was done without you? A ton. That's why there is Dubsado.

Send Owl makes it so easy to deliver digital products through automation with a safe checkout.  Link it to your email marketing service so you can make sales while you work on something else.
