smallbiz TOOLS


Maybe you heard – I’ve been BLABbing the day away!(BLAB is a new live broadcast platform!)

I’ve lurked. A few times.

I even jumped into a guest seat once or twice until my friend Dorien Morin-van Dam (More In Media) and I decided to put together a series of #SmallBizBlabz focusing on solving problems our smallbiz viewers might be facing within their very own small businesses.

Our first official BLAB was focused on tools: Small business tools for small business success.  Tools to run your biz, tools to help you with marketing, tools to make a day in your smallbiz a bit easier. Since we do not take for granted the tools we use we were so ready  to share our favorites only to be even more excited when our guests (who jumped into our guest seat) shared the tools they can’t live without.

Watch our replay now to see the dozens of tools we talked about  – I know you will learn something new, I sure did!


Don’t have time to watch our replay? We get it!  Below I share some of the tools Dorien and I (and our guests!) BLABbed about:

Design Tools:  Canva & PicMonkey

Content Curation/Schedulers: PostPlanner, Feedly & Buffer

Auto Responder: Crowdfire App

Accounting/Bookeeping: Wave, Quickbooks

Family Calendar/Lists: Cozi

Appointment Schedulers: BookedIN, TimeTrade, Setmore

Calendars: Good ol’ Google

….and many many more were mentioned during our broadcast.  Dorien and I agree this is just the tip of the toolbox iceberg discussion. Want us to continue this topic, just let us know!

P.S.  The magic of a successful live broadcast…the comments and feedback from the viewers and attendees. Our guests bring a ton of value to our #SmallBizBlabz – it’s fun, educational and my hope is that you will soon sit in our guest seat too.
