11 Apps and Websites Consultants Can't Live Without

CommPRO Global, Inc.  |

People working for large corporations these days are constantly told to think and act like they work at a startup. Fail fast. Be nimble. Wear hoodies.

Here’s a different take on that advice: act like you’re self-employed. After a 15-year streak working for media and marketing firms with barely a day’s break, I launched my own consultancy and suddenly needed to fend for myself. A handful of technologies have made the process much easier.

There’s a lot I miss about the corporate world. When I return sooner rather than later, below are some of the tools I will take back with me, and if you’re gainfully employed, some of these may come in handy today.

Looking at this full list together, more than half of these are free, and the rest combined could run all of a few hundred dollars monthly. They should save enough time and money that they will turn any CMO into a CFO’s best friend. The best part is that if you have a steady job, you don’t need to quit and become a consultant to learn about them.
