    The technology has made the living style life on own terms and it has contributed a lot in the rise f the solopreneurs. Solopreneurs are not interested in building the large company instead they are interested in making their lifestyle as of their own. Other than this I would like to suggest some essential tools for solopreneurs.

    1. Task management
    2.Ever note
    3. GetResponse
    4. Skype

    Hello Deborah,

    I quite agree with you on the need for a solopreneur to have a website. It gives one’s brand a good impression before prospects, especially in a situation where competitors are everywhere. You can even use it as a competitive advantage.

    Thanks for sharing this amazing piece.

    Internet has indeed enabled a lot of opportunities for people wanting to work from home. With credible-looking website the website visitor doesn’t even have to know the entrepreneur is working from home: it’s easy to rent a meeting room if the potential customer wants to meet face to face.

    My own favourite free business tools are following (there are limitations but for 1-2 person companies the free versions are often enough):
    – Bitwarden (password management)
    – Hootsuite (social media management)
    – Trello (project management)
    – Evernote (for random notes)
    – Dropbox (file back-ups)

    I definitely agree with what you say here. A solopreneur will need a website. I’ve read once a quote which I think is very inspiring. It says: a website works for 24/7, no employee will do that. A website will work passively for you for years to come.

    I’ve bee a web developer myself for a long time. And I can see how people are thinking about their website. It’s a part of their investments. And It really is important if they’re serious about their business model.

    I’ve been using: Trello, ViralTag, WunderList, and GSuite. These tools have been pretty helpful for me over a course of time.

    Thanks for the nice article here,
    Keep up the good work, please. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi,Deborah
    Amazing article and a much needed one for all the solopreneur out there.
    I believe every solopreneur should have a website which at later stage they can make into a brand and create a business out of it.
    All the things you mentioned will surely help newbies during their early days.
    Thanks for amazing piece of content.

    Every single item listed in this article is absolutely essential. For those starting out, a website is absolutely essential, but without social media, the website may not get as much visitors.
    And if you’re to use social media, you must be social. Tools like picmonkey comes handy here.

    The likes of Emailmeform and wave makes it all professional. Great Article Deborah,
    Thank you.
