Five tools to boost your work from home experience

Working from the comfort of your home is a dream that so many are chasing in 2020. With the popular trend, I want to let you in on the tools that I have found to be most successful in helping my work from home experience. Below are five tools that can improve overall productivity and organization in your work from home experience.


Here comes my obsession… LIST MAKING. Wunderlist is an easy way to organize and create lists. You can make to-do lists, add items with deadlines, and pertinent information. Best part? All can be accessed from your smartphone! Wunderlist also has the function to invite any team members that you may need to assign a task to, or even email a list!


There are so many CRM options out there, but I love HubSpot. Why? There are several reasons, but best of all.. IT’S FREE! With HubSpot you have the ability to create contacts, add activities, create reminders, and even schedule emails internally. You can also add team members, who can either have full access to your contacts, or just viewing access.


If you are looking for a project management tool, then this is the tool for you. While I love to have deadlines for a project, one of the best features on Trello is that it does not require a specific date. The application works on a Kanban system, so you have boards with lists and cards on them for each item that needs to be completed. All cards have a checklist, where you can add images, files, or even other cards and boards. I primarily use Trello to manage items that are more general (without a deadline). I have boards for social media content, blog posts, or even household/family items.

Strict Workflow- Pomodoro Technique

I know I can’t be the only one who has trouble focusing on multiple tasks. Well Strict Workflow is the tool for you! If you read our blog post on the pomodoro technique and are curious how to manage, try using the strict workflow browser extension. It enforces a rule of 25 minutes of distraction-free work, followed by 5 minutes of break. The extension is easy to use, and you can choose what sites to block during a work timer.


Lets face it, when you work on a computer you probably have so many passwords that it is hard to maintain. That’s why LastPass, is a true lifesaver. It is a secure digital password storage application, that has one central login password to remember along with your mail address. Passwords for all other sites are then stored under this one login. It is also handy to share passwords safely with clients or them with you.

Whether you are looking to advance productivity in work life or home life these five tools should be included in your daily routine. If your productivity still isn’t increasing, try delegating tasks to a virtual assistant. This will allow you to focus more on the bigger tasks at hand!
