Five Apps to Make Entrepreneurs’ Lives Easier

By The Harbor team 

As an entrepreneur, one of your main focuses should be finding ways to work more efficiently. When you’re building a business from the ground up, time is certainly one of your most valuable commodities. We believe these five apps will help you save time and sanity while pursuing your entrepreneurial endeavours!


Ever come across an article, image, or video that you are interested in, but don’t have the time at that moment to partake? Pocket is incredibly helpful for those who are looking to save content to view/read for later. The best part? You don’t even need internet connection to view what you’ve saved. You can “pocket” via email, your web browser, and from over 1500 apps.


To successfully start a business, you have to be on your financial game. Mint helps you with your personal finances. Keep track of upcoming bills, receive alerts on unusual spending and manage a customized budget...all in one place.

Google Drive

For ultimate team productivity, the Google Drive app is a must. It’s free to use, you just need a Gmail account. With Drive, no more worrying about only saving a document on your laptop with no traces of it on your desktop. All of your files will be in one space, accessible from your phone, computer or tablet. All photos, documents and videos that you upload to Drive will be saved- safe and sound.


Don’t slow down when trying to pay or be paid. Venmo allows your to send or receive money securely, for free. You can pay using the money you have in Venmo or choose to link a bank account. The app works best when you connect to others, and we recommend utilizing this feature to split bills and track your team’s spend in the early stages.


Time is money, and you don’t want to waste yours on counting up the time you spend on the job. HoursTracker is the most highly-rated time tracker in the app store. You can choose to clock in and clock out as you go, enter exact times or even have the app automatically clock you in and out depending on your location. Divy up jobs based on custom tags and filters to be smart with your and your team’s time spend.
