Make 2018 your year in business with our top picks of business products and services to help you achieve your goals in 2018!
I have raved about Canva for majority of 2017, so if you haven't used Canva yet, make it at the top of your to do list for 2018. An Australian company founded in 2012, Canva is a mostly free online graphic design website, with thousands of templates for pretty much everything. I currently use the free version and still get SO much done through it. If you are new to graphic design, or Adobe Indesign scares you a little, Canva is really user and budget friendly.

Once you've got Canva down pat, you're going to want to check out VidWiz - a "Canva style" setup for video's! It is still in it's Beta stage, but it's worth a look and a play around!

3. Wave Accounting
As a small business, budget and accounting is one of the most important, but somehow also one of the most neglected areas we should be focusing on. Coupled with the cost of accounting software, and the scary "accountant talk", it all falls back to the bottom of our to do list. Wave fixes all of that with easy to understand, and most importantly, free, accounting software for small businesses. You don't need a degree in business economics or a huge budget and it's extremely user friendly. If you're not a fan of your current accounting software, give Wave a try in 2018.

If you're anything like me you struggle to keep a balanced organisation between home and work. Communication can be lost and forgetting certain important family dates are key personality traits my family will be happy to tell you I have. No problem any more however, with the Life Sorted app. A cloud sharing platform so everyone in your family can connect to this planner so you can finally keep updated with everything that is going on. A small fee of $6 a month is a small price to pay for not missing another family dinner!
