I’ve been a happy Trello user for years: I use it for my editorial calendar, for keeping track of my business operations, for passion projects, as well as various team projects I run. I’ve converted at least twenty other people to Trello, and they loved it so much, they started using it for their own business, school, and personal projects.
For every entrepreneur, life is a series of events and segments of time.
Copious spare time is scarce (or non-existent) because there is always something else to do or coming up waiting in the wings.
Products to launch, networking events to attend and leads to follow up with, speaking opportunities to line up and prepare for, deadlines to meet, email newsletters to draft, edit, and schedule to release, marketing campaigns to develop, new clients to get acquainted with, trade shows to prepare for, business goals to reach. The list goes on and on.
For many entrepreneurs without a team, it is your sole responsibility to develop and produce new products and services, create and implement your marketing and social media strategies, attend to administrative tasks, serve as the sales force and deal with customer service issues, pay the bills and collect unpaid monies that are owed to you, network, build your brand, and if you are lucky, get a little bit of sleep or try to have a life outside of your business.
