11 Business Tools Entreprenistas can’t live without


With so many business tools and solutions out there to choose from, we know it can be difficult to decide which to use. Our team asked some incredible Entreprenistas to share their favorite solution with us so that we could provide a round up of trusted tools for you to check out as you begin or continue your Entreprenista journey!

Canva – Create social media graphics, presentations, and more!

Kamal Brar of Healthify Tea: “Canva is our favorite business tool because its a fantastic creative solution for the marketing needs of a small business.”

Sophie Dornstreich of InCircle Fertility: “Canva! We use it for everything from social media posts to business proposals to marketing materials!”

Shopify – Grow your business with a multi-faceted and easy to use e-commerce platform.

Lindsay Applebaum Stuart of Mamalux: “Shopify. I’ve been using it for five years now (with my previous company and now Mamalux) and I can’t imagine doing e-commerce with anything else. It’s so easy to design, update and optimize a site.”

Veed.io – Edit video content to share on multiple channels.

Cassie Tucker of CAMM Media: “Veed.io is one of my favorite business solutions because short form video is driving real results for my clients and this platform makes it easy to create branded, subtitled videos that are suitable for a variety of social media platforms! I’m currently using it to create Instagram Reels to generate buzz around my podcast Marketing Happy Hour.”

Google Drive – Keep all shared team documents in an accessible hub.

Elisa Molina of COVEDOZA: “My favorite business tool is Google Drive. It allows you create company folders, share content with people you work with and make communication so much better.”

Kajabi – Master e-mail marketing and create courses.

Life Coach Mary Massey: “I love Kajabi. It handles my email marketing, funnels, website and much more.”

Quickbooks – Manage finances easily.

Susan Sarit of Operations Made Easy: “Quickbooks is the best, because it manages my finances and keeps them in order. I used to track via a manual spreadsheet but that had to stop as my business grew.”

Grammarly – Avoid grammar mistakes when typing.

Ashley Pisek of MISS SWISS: “A tool I use for my business that I really enjoy is Grammarly. I was diagnosed with dyslexia in high school so having a tool to make sure I’m not making typos has been amazing for me.”

Calendly – Easily allow clients to book calls and manage time more efficiently.

Catalina Escallon and Daniela Guarin of Noodo Studio: “Calendly is our favorite! We do so many calls per week and scheduling time with other people is super tricky. Calendly just lets you chose a slot and it becomes hassle free scheduling.”

Later – Schedule social media content and make the most of Link In Bio.

Yesenia Reinoso of Y Communicate: “I love using Later – a social media scheduling tool that I can schedule posts in advance and analyze engagement.”

Zoho CRM – Keep all projects in one central location for task management.

Stephanie Cartin of Entreprenista: “Finding a CRM that could grow with Entreprenista was so important to us when starting out. Zoho CRM does that for us, and we can manage our growth so much more efficiently with their easy to use platform.”

Slack – Communicate quickly with teammates.

Katrina Summers of KSB Agency: “My favorite business tool is slack because it gives our team a sense of comradery, water cooler talk, support, and just being there when anyone needs some help quickly. We’ve tried a variety of different communication platforms and slack really has an all encompassing aspect for casual conversation to integrating our project management systems and working docs so everyone is on the same page.
