Must-have iPhone Apps For Business Owners
Owning and running a business can be a big chore. However, there are many different iPhone Apps available to help keep things organized and running smoothly. Stay coordinated in the palm of your hand, everywhere you go with these Apps.
When it comes to general organization, Evernote is leading the way for iPhone. This App allows you to create and track to-do lists, scan and upload documents, and store contacts and Twitter posts. It also works as a virtual scrapbook, giving you the ability to clip, tag, and notate content from across the web, such as articles and photos. It also keeps all this information organized, handy, and synced to your mobile devices and computer.
Wunderlist is also a great to keep projects organized. This App lets you create task lists, share the lists and even assign specific jobs to employees and set deadlines. The lists also automatically sync to keep everyone on top of what is done and what is left to do.
Keep payments to employees and from customers simple and easy by using a finance App. PayPal, the originator of online payment options, offers an App and card reader to connect to your iPhone to take credit card payments on the go. You can also use the App to pay your employees and all transactions are kept organized to view on your mobile device or desktop computer.
Whether it's keeping in touch with customers, employees, or associates, communication is an integral part of your business. Skype has held the edge in communication for years, but newer Apps are breaking through as well. Slack allows you to create separate message groups and organize them by theme or project. It also uses a handy search feature so you never have to worry about trying to find information from a conversation again, just search for parts of a message and see the results. You can also send and receive files directly to your iPhone with this App.
Also in the category of communication, Addappt has messaging features, but more importantly, keeps contact information updated. This App automatically updates phone numbers and email addresses for your contacts as soon as they make the change. This can be a huge life saver, since you will always have the most up-to-date information for everyone you communicate with. It also keeps track of how you last communicated with a person, so you never forget if you sent the email your friend asked you about on your last phone call.
One of the advantages of running your own business is that you get to make your own schedule. But sometimes this can cause you to lose track of time. Time management will never been an issue for you if you use RescueTime on your iPhone. This App tracks time spent on each application and website so you can better evaluate how you spend your time. Try out the free version, and if you like it, you can upgrade to a premium version, which has alerts and the ability to block distractions.
Book review- "Awaken the Giant Within" by Anthony Robbins
Anthony Robbins is the most renowned self-improvement and motivational spokesperson. Although his very first book 'Awaken the Giant Within' was released more than ten years ago, it still has great relevance in current society. This is a book replete with a lot of strategies on how to take control of your emotions, health, relationships and finances. It is a broad based book that offers classic philosophies that can assist you to reach your actual goals and uncover your actual zest in life.
From the renowned author of Inner Strength, Unlimited Power, and MONEY Master the Game, Anthony Robbins, the nation's pioneer in the science of ultimate performance, shows you his most suitable strategies and techniques for controlling emotional and physical health, personal relationships, finances, and your total life.
The renowned expert in the psychology of transformation, Anthony Robbins offers a schematic program professing the basic techniques of self-control that will empower you to unleash your actual motto, take charge of your life, and tap the forces that form your future.
I first read this book in the early 90's and ever since Tony Robbins has published more books and more audio systems but the basic philosophies remain the same. This book served as an introduction to Neuro Linguistic Programming which achieves good results if one practices it. Tony speaks extensively about his personally experiences also and some of the conflicts he faced while growing up which permits the reader to compare to their recent situation.
The only thing that should be emphasized about this book is that it will not offer you a process in discovering your purpose in life. Tony has many an equipment in the book to help you in taking charge towards achieving your goals but one has searched for what you should be actually doing is completely up to you. The only reason why one says this is that one has read reviews in the current past where people walk away unhappily because they have enough fuel and no vehicle to put it in. Such as life, it's up to us to get a hold of the car.
