You keep most of your business information in your head. Perhaps you tried a few programs but gave up when they were more trouble than they're worth. Or you just don't know where to start to make them reflect the way your mind works.
Top Tip: You can make your life a lot easier with just 1 or 2 simple solutions. You really don't need the very latest expensive program to run your business without the headache of having to remember every detail (or just plain forgetting them sometimes).

Whether it's spreadsheets, Google Documents or good old-fashioned notebooks... You like things simple and straightforward, and using documents lets you store all the information you need and know exactly where it is. It takes a lot for you to try out a new piece of software, and documents (whether digital or paper-based) feel like the familiar option.
Top tip: Documents may be familiar but they can't automatically remind your clients about appointments or send emails for you. The world of systems might seem a little scary but you don't need complicated systems to lift a few tasks off your plate. Setting up 1 or 2 simple programs alongside your documents can keep you on track without the hassle.

AppSumo is your best friend, you can’t help but snap up every new offer. You truly believe that each new system is going to solve all your problems, if only you had the time to set it up so it’s working properly. In the meantime, you're actually running your business using a mismatch of systems or even relying on emails and paper.
Top Tip: It could be time to rationalise some of those systems and cancel a few subscriptions. Start by working out what you really need to run your business and then identify the tech that will do that for you. Make the tech work for you, not the other way around!
