    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.
