10 Mobile Apps for a First Class Entrepreneur

Written by Kevin Nelson

Making important calls starting from the time the day breaks, writing and responding to hundreds of emails, filing a vast number of reports, creating thousands of plans, brainstorming new ideas, and creating efficient marketing programs at the same time: this is the daily life of an entrepreneur. And if you think that it is easy to keep the healthy balance and make everything work on the go, then you could not be more wrong.

That is why, with the growth of responsibilities, every entrepreneur needs the assistance of the latest technologies. As you know, there is a huge number of applications businesspeople can get to make their life easier.

10 Screens of Closely Spaced Names

There is an app I use called Insight Timer. It’s for timing meditation sessions. It’s a little clunky.  Pretty basic. You’ve probably never heard of it. Recently the creator of the app sent a note out to the users, via the app, and he got a response. A huge response.

A new app called Talko is launching. It promises to change the way you use a phone. You’ll have access to a swift-running stream of live talk, voicemails, texts, images – all organized into threads you can access later, or delete if you find something too embarrassing.
