My favourite tools for life and business

Sometimes it can seem like there are 101 ways to do one thing online. By the time you get a Facebook ad for everything you’ve ever Googled – and some that you surely haven’t – it can feel like an old fashioned bazaar, complete with shouting in your face.

To try and help here are some of my favorite tools that I use in managing my life and business. Some of them may work for you, some of them not and some you may already use!

Betterment – An automated investing service helping people to better manage and grow their wealth through smarter technology for a fraction of the cost of traditional financial services.

Digit– We all know saving money is important, but actually doing it every week or month can be hard. Every few days, Digit helps by checking your spending habits and removing a few dollars from your checking account if you can afford it. You can easily withdraw your money any time, quickly and with no fees.

Acorns – Want to start investing easily? Acorns automatically invests spare change from your purchases.

Motif Investement – Motif is a trading platform built around you and your insights. Many investments don’t offer a clear picture of holdings and pricing when you need them most. You want to see and understand what you own, what it’s worth and what it costs to trade, at all times. No hidden costs, no management fees.

Fancy Hands – Fancy Hands is a team of US-based assistants at your fingertips. Use any device, at any time of day, and their assistants will tackle anything on your to-do list! No negotiating, no waiting, just send your requests and they’ll get to work immediately.

Sanebox – SaneBox works on top of your email account. After a quick analysis SaneBox is able to determine the importance of each email as it arrives in your inbox. It moves unimportant messages out of your Inbox into a new folder called SaneLater, and summarizes them in a digest.

Mailchimp -My current and favorite email marketing system. Pretty emails you can send easily and inexpensively.

Sometimes I use affiliate links on this page. This means if you make a purchase through my recommendation I may get paid a small percentage of the fee. This in no way increases your cost, and in some cases gives you a discount.

    Hi Jen,

    I love your insight and articles on Daily Worth.
    For the websites you stated above, do you know of any UK equivalents?
    I am from London, however, struggle to find good resources for life and business here.
    I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for the knowledge you share.

      Hmm, I will have to look into that. The more contact I have with people overseas the more I’ve been realizing that these kinds of apps and tools, especially those that connect with banking systems are not international. I will do some research and get back to you!
