Also some words of creative wisdom from Bashy.
When you quit your 9-5 and started working for yourself or started a side hustle, you thought that your time will be yours to utilise. The 40 hour weeks then turned into 80 hour weeks and you find that you’ve become busy beyond measure. Missing birthdays, weddings, holidays just so that you can keep the hustle alive. It’s not easy being your own boss and that’s why we’ve got a couple of tricks and apps to help you organise your workload and free up your time.
Google Calendar – syncs with your gmail inbox so that you can keep track of all your appointments and events. It also syncs with Google Maps, which pushes a notification to your phone to tell when to leave to get to each location on time.
Evernote – a note-taking application that allows you to sync your notes across devices. It also lets you clip articles and web pages.
Hootsuite – a social media management application that lets you schedule your social media output. Extremely important for a busy entrepreneur.
Fiverr – an app that lets you outsource work to freelancers for only $5USD = £3.50. Whether it be logo design, blog posts, animations etc., you’ll find the service advertised. Task Rabbit is another app that offers a similar service, at higher prices but the work is higher in quality.
Also have a look at Later, which specifically lets you schedule your content for Instagram based upon how it will look on your feed. Ensures that your feed stays aesthetically pleasing.
