Technology is necessary.

It’s no secret that technology continues to change the face of how we do business. Love it or hate it, we all have to use it or risk being left behind by competitors that are using the newest tech to add value to their clients in new and innovative ways. As there are more choices than ever literally at our fingertips, it can be difficult to know which ones to adopt and which ones to leave in the app store. As a consultant, busy mom, and business owner, I’ve developed a few favorites that help me do more in less time and with less hassle and keep my mindset in check.

Here are my top five I can't live without (I know some are so outdated I am old haha)


At its core Trello is an online corkboard. You use it to organize “cards” into lists — those cards can be tasks, notes, projects, shared files, or anything else that helps your team work together.

  • Allows you to easily identify which tasks are done, not started, or in process,

  • Great visual for your basic workflow

  • Do, Doing, Done Columns

  • Highlights which tasks you should focus on - blog post, video, podcast, etc.

  • o Can easily create a detailed workflow for each task

Google Drive

Keeps documents organized. Almost EVERYONE knows how to use it.


The work management platform that teams use to stay focused on the goals, projects, and daily tasks that grow business.

  • Great for teams working on the same tasks/projects

  • Can assign tasks and specify a deadline

  • System of checks and balances for training

  • Allows a team member to mark a task “done” and notifies other team members that the task has been completed

  • Everybody can see what needs to be done and where the project is progressing

  • Your team can see what your expectations are and what your vision is


Get organized and productive with a note-taking application

  • Great place to have notes for those endless to-do’s

  • Can easily organize your notes in categories — a huge time saver

The Secret to Money

An app designed to change the way you think about money.

  • Features a personal development program of daily activities

  • Guides you through powerful practices that will help you develop a wealth mindset

When you’re implementing a new piece of technology, it’s important to give it time and not give up. There’s always a learning curve whenever we step into something new. Realize that the benefits you’ll experience from using the new app or program will be worth any frustration you have getting started.

Here are some quick and dirty tips that I use when guiding my team through the adoption of new tech:

  • Push through the tough phase (implementation)

  • Block your time to avoid being overwhelmed by the learning phase

  • Batch or time block and assign a day for each workflow.

  • The more structure you put in the more freedom you will have, so add structure!

  • Manage your business, don’t let it manage you

  • Create specific and targeted goals for each week

*Remember that you can do this. Tech is a tool and it doesn’t have to be a scary one. Take it at your own pace and give yourself time to learn the ins and outs of the app or program. Technology can sometimes get a bad rap because of the implementation phase nuances, but you will thank yourself and so will your team for saving time and money.
