Running your own business has never been easy. There’s endless work to be done to make sure things are running smoothly and it can often times feel overwhelming. Thankfully, the help we’re able to get from our smartphones has transformed them into tools for more than just calls and texts. They’re able to manage and organize our time in some incredible ways. Here is Keenans Accounting’s list of the top five free apps to help organize your small business.
The ultimate way to make, take and store notes! With an account that covers all of your devices, cropping and saving webpages for future reference is as easy as a few taps. Highlight the important parts and make annotations to make sure you never forget why it’s important. It also has a template for any type of note that you’d require at a meeting and even integration with apps like Gmail, Outlook, Google Drive and more, it means you don’t ever have to forget about saving the important parts of your business communications. With secure cloud storage that ensures your notes will never get lost, it’s why Evernote is our pick for note taking.

Scanners used to be a daunting expense for small businesses, especially for those that rarely used them. Thankfully, phone cameras have come along so far that for a brand-new business, Genius Scan can often work as a wonderful substitute, especially on the go. Taking a picture of a contract, receipt, invoice or any other document will result in a perfectly sharp PDF, ready to be saved or emailed.

Running your own business can be stressful, we know. That’s why it’s so important at times to take in a deep breath and center yourself so you can focus on the real issues. When we’re stressed, we tend to focus instead on the smaller problems, and breathing and relaxing can absolutely help. Breathe2Relax is a portable stress management tool which provides detailed information on the effects of stress on the body and instructions and practice exercises to help users learn a skill called diaphragmatic breathing. Take a break, take a deep breath and get back to work with a clear head and a calm mind.
