    My Top 4 Foundational Tech Recommendations for Your Biz

    My Top 4 Foundational Tech Recommendations for Your Biz

    Here’s the low down on our 4 favorite tech recommendations for your biz. In the online space, we have a lot of technology and platforms out there that we can choose from. 


     


    Having all of these choices can be great, but it can also lead to analysis paralysis where we get to this position where we feel like we can’t make a decision because we are so overwhelmed by all of the options that we have. 


     


    It can be tempting to try all the latest tools and platforms, however, just because you can use them all, doesn't mean that you should. Using too many tools in your business is actually going to make it difficult to stay productive. On Team EE, we take a lean approach to our biz systems so we are sharing our 4 favorite tools to streamline your business.

    - ClickUp


    - Slack


    - Google Drive

LOVE Courtney & Her Approach

I’ve been following Courtney & the Elevate Effect on Instagram for a while and love how straightforward and practical her approach is. The planning/daily schedule episode was a HUGE turning point for me in how I look at my days/weeks and time blocking in general. Can’t wait for more episodes! 😍

Amazing

Courtney is full of inspiration and practical advice! After listening I am now implementing ways to grow and scale and I’m so excited Ed! Thank you 😂

Your business bestie in your pocket

Courtney shares the perfect combination of strategy and action steps in her new podcast, and I can’t wait to continue listening to more episodes! I especially appreciated the one about planning your day—so often we forget to take ownership of our time and that shows up in lack of efficiency. And if anyone knows how to optimize a business from the bottom-up, it’s Courtney. I also love how they’re short but jam-packed—perfect for my busy entrepreneur schedule.
