Hi Guys…. just wanted to share a little about my everyday runnings and what I use on the go and in general. As you know today’s workforce is on the move, but staying productive while traveling can be challenge. How do you get work done on-the-go? Do you have a list of your favourite mobile apps? Have you used any cloud-based blogging tools or other Online Business Tools that could be highlighted ? What kind of laptop do I prefer? I want to share my experience and ask you my readers for your recommendations on what you use that is extremely helpful to you.

Iam addicted to youtube and whereas I used to find traffic, which we experience daily, a real drudgery. I now kinda look forward to traffic because i use that time to listen to a youtube video or Podcast. So my Samsung J7 Prime phone is my TV and Radio all in one. The apps I have on my phone are my squarespace app to check my website as well as the wordpress app to write my blogs wherever I want to.
Kindle is my favourite reading App and I tend to buy books that grab my attention based on the area I’m researching. At work or when I need to scan a document without having to wait until I get back to the office especially if I can’t take the document with me then I use my favourite scanning App CamScanner. I have the Etsy App as well to monitor my Etsy Shops. For my Podcasts I use the Anchor App. Again it’s very easy to use and it shares my Podcast to other platforms.
I recently added the Tik Tok App but I don’t use it as much as I should to show off my Art. I use Instagram on my phone or Laptop to post my new art pieces. I use a MacBook Pro laptop and macs are the best. I’ve loved converting from the PC to Macs twenty something years now and I converted my husband as well because he kept crashing laptops because of the amount of pages he had up and as he was about to buy another PC I told him to get a Mac because they don’t crash and they are much more resilient and so said so done and he hasn’t moved from the Mac since.
Hi guys…. so we’ve been on lock down for about 3 weeks now and as I mentioned i’m used to working from home but my husband isn’t. But as time passes and we start to organise our separate spaces things are working out well. I have my little corner in my bedroom where I do all of my Coaching sessions and he does his meetings and sessions in our Library/art studio at his desk. It gets hot in there at a particular time of the day so he then moves into the bedroom with me…unfortunately that is when challenges occur but we’ve managed to work those out.
So my phone, macbook Pro laptop, are the key electronics I live on. I like to write so my planner is where I do all of my scheduling, daily and weekly. I love Bullet Journalling which I started 2 years ago, when I discovered them on Pinterest. I have about 3 bullet journals that I’m using all at the same time now and I really enjoy filling them out as it allows me to be creative in my planning. Some of the other software I use and most are on my phone and mac are:
- Squarespace App
- WordPress App
- Udemy App – To go through my courses
- Duolingo App – to learn Spanish
- Scrabble Game – to play
- LinkedIn – to monitor my personal and business page
- Fossil App – to monitor my Fossil Watch and see my step rate and sleep count etc.
- Tik Tok
- Microsoft Suite – Word, Excel and Powerpoint
For my Blog and all the other Sites I run, I use the following online tools, such as:
- Tailwind – to schedule my Pinterest posts
- Placeit.net – to design my tee designs, tee smock up and intro videos for youtube and my sites
- Canva – to design all my thumbnails, forms, printables and more
- Teespring – to post my tees for sale
- Teechip – to post more tees for sale
- Mailchimp – to design my landing pages, for email marketing and storage for all who subscribe to my list
- Pinterest – for research, info and ideas
- Youtube – to lear about anything I don’t understand.
- Redbubble, Zazzle and Society 6 – to sell my artwork on products
Most recently based on my Executive coaching business I’ve been using Zoom a lot more because many f my clients although they live on the other side of the island I tend to go to their offices, but the traffic these past few years has been horrific so I use Zoom to coach my clients in St. Lucia so why not use it here in Trinidad. So next week I’m doing some of y Coaching interviews with the participants and their managers via Zoom. That cuts down the time as I don’t have to spend two hours in traffic. I can’t wait, i can therefore do reports with the extra time. YIPPEE!!!!
Well guys…..that’s it for now, those a just a few of the apps and online tools I use daily, some of them might help you, check them out. i didn’t go into detail with them but like I said I use them every day.
Love you guys and stay safe
