Making our lives and business run more efficiently is something we work really hard at. We are constantly looking for tools to not only better us as a brand but an overall team and family unit. Today we’ve pulled together the top five apps we are using daily right now. We hope that at least one of these apps can help you achieve more efficiency in your life too!
We absolutely love how this app has helped keep us on track with our daily goals and has helped us ensure we’re pursuing healthy habits. It is set up so you can individually track your accomplishments and create a streak! You can create up to twelve different habits you want to keep track of, six of which fit on a single screen when you open the app. We both have ours set up to six different habits including taking vitamins, mindful minutes for meditation, water intake, reading, exercise and taking our supplements and smoothies.
Looking for a great way to actually start meditating or having mindful minutes? Check out the Calm App. We started using this early last year when we knew we wanted to work on meditation but just didn’t know where to start or how to go about it. And we can honestly say this alone has been a game changer for us.
This is a big one for the company. Slack essentially eliminates a massive inbox while organizing all of our project communication into an easy to access channel. We’ve found this beneficial for internal communication with our team and employees, as well as with our partners on collaborations outside of the everyday client projects. It has allowed us to talk about each individual project and break the projects down by channels to help keep everything organized and easy to find.
We’ve been working hard on trying to manage our time to the best of our ability. Tailwind has been a game changer when it comes to scheduling out content. For years we’ve been using tailwind for Pinterest and just this year we’ve welcomed the app with open arms to start scheduling out our Instagram accounts.

Keeping track of hours on multiple projects can be challenging. We’ve implemented the Hours Tracker app, allowing us to accurately account for every minute spent on a project. The large benefit for us is future forecasting to give us a better understanding of how much time a project will really take. The last thing any business wants to do is burn hours and profit.
