Whether we need an online conference call for a one-on-one meeting or the ability to host several people for a video webinar, Zoom has got us covered. We love how easy it is to invite people, and the integrations with our other systems makes it easy to use in our operations.
Think of Airtable like an Excel workbook x Access database on steroids. It’s an awesome tool to organize data, present information to your team, and store information that you may need to manipulate later. We use it for our customer database, but there are so many more opportunities to incorporate this system into our business.
Asana is a winner for our internal organization needs. From onboarding to tracking to note-taking, this has really changed the game for Little Fish in terms of keeping track of team needs and responsibilities.

Who doesn’t know about PayPal? Quick and easy payments from clients for goods or services. If you use it as your main source of payments, you could also benefit from the reporting and invoicing functions. We use it to make it easier for clients to pay us.
We use Stripe for our bank and credit card payment processing needs, which integrates with our other systems like Acuity, Dubsado, and Squarespace. It is such a seamless experience that you might forget it’s taking care of business for you.
There are many cloud accounting systems out there to support your business in creating invoices, categorizing transactions, and producing financial statements, but we recommend QuickBooks above the others. They’ve been in the game for a while, which is reflected in the many integrations and apps available, and the customer service has never let me down.
Need to take payments in person for your sales? Square is the easiest way to do so, either with their free card swipe or low-cost card reader. Square even offers the ability to manage inventory and view reporting to analyze on and offline sales.
If you want to take advantage of business mileage as a deduction, you are required to track it throughout the year. Luckily, there’s an app for that. Mile IQ will track your trips, and allow you to categorize them Tinder-style: left for personal, right for business. At the end of the year, you can run a report to use with your tax return to claim the expense.

Another rideshare app that works pretty much worldwide. In addition to allowing for business v. personal reporting, you can also include your team and clients on your account for easier expensing and tracking.
