Helpful Tools & Services
We created this page as a quick one-stop resource to show you our favorite and most helpful tools that we use every day. These range from marketing and connecting with clients, to apps that can help you plan, schedule, and declutter your professional (and personal!) life, to help your business run efficiently. Next to each item, we have a quick overview video about how we use each service, and a button to easily sign up for them.*

Invoicing & Payroll
Square has many payment solutions, though it’s their invoicing and payroll services that we love the most.

✔ Automated reminders (for those clients who aren’t always on top of their payments)
✔ Payroll services, with support for hourly and salaried employees, time card integration, and health coverage
Evernote has been around for a long time, and there’s a good reason for it! We find it indispensable for taking and organizing notes, thanks to some handy features such as:
✔ Quickly attaching images, documents, or invoices to notes
✔ Easy sharing options, including sharing company-wide notes
✔ Helpful integrations such as Outlook, Slack, and Google Drive
Microsoft To Do (formerly Wunderlist) helps us quickly and easily put together to-do lists with minimal effort and tailor them to our needs, saving us a ton of time. Our favorite To Do features:
✔ A “My Day” view showing all items that matter to us right now
✔ Due dates, reminders, and recurring tasks for those daily, weekly, and monthly items that will always be there
✔ Like Evernote, To Do lists can be shared with anyone, making group projects easy
How many calendar apps are out there? There are many options, but the simple-looking Google Calendar can likely take care of all your needs.
✔ It’s easy to use with a clean look
✔ It’s everywhere: Anything you change on any of your devices will sync to one another
✔ Easy appointment and event sharing options
Dropbox is a must-have for easily sharing documents, photos, and more across your team and to clients.

✔ Manage contacts within Zoom, making it easy to reconnect

Your Color Guru
Your Color Guru is a great tool when you look in your closet and think you have nothing to wear.
