With everything we’ve been doing in the HHE office lately, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite tools and references to keep me organized. There are so many things that are helpful in staying organized, but these are my mainstays. Some of these tools are even contributors to some big changes coming up!

Fave 5 Biz

Powersheets: I’d be lost without these lovelies from Lara Casey! They keep me on track and constantly remind me of my core and why I do things. When I feel overwhelmed, these are the pages I turn to, in conjunction with the Word.

Planning Pod: Y’all, I can’t even express how much I love this software/app! I’ve been using it for 3 weeks and every single day it proves more amazing. It keeps everything in one spot, connects my clients with the same information without umpteen email attachments, helps me manage my backend (finances, invoices, proposals, etc.) and even has electronic signature contracts that connect to PayPal! Once I’ve delved in further and have been using it longer, I’ll likely write a full post about it. Serious nerd alert on this one!

Spotify Playlists: You know I love music, it inspires me, helps me focus and is just plain fun. This week I’ve been head over heels for the new Sara Bareilles album, particularly this song, here.

Emily Ley printables: Between the client notes and daily schedule pages, I am able to plan out my days and agendas for meetings with a completely simplified approach. These are wonderful for me to take to consults and client meetings. Along with my Simplified Planner and Planning Pod on my ipad, meetings are so much more organized. The daily planners are so helpful on days I need to stay on schedule. I can allot myself blocks of time to tackle my list and when time is up, I move on. Emily, thank you for these!

B is for Bonnie “Navigating Entrepreneurship” series: Last, but certainly not least, this series on Bonnie’s blog is amazing! If you are a small business owner, you should go read this now! She covers everything from your ideal client, dreaming, and community to boundaries, time management and general tips for good business. Some of it is common sense that you just need to hear sometimes and other bits are new perspectives. Either way, all of it is helpful!

Do any of you use some or all of these tools? If so, I’d love to hear any tips or comments on your experiences!

xoxo- Jenn
