Two Best Business Investments from 2017
2017 was a big year for me. Did you find it was for you?
In 2017 I made some bigger investment, but today I wanted to share my 2 favorite business investments from 2017 that you can make right now. These won’t look so glamorous on the surface, but saving your sanity pays off quickly and comes with the best ROI!
Transparency Note -> Please note that while this blog post contains affiliate links, I'm annoyingly particular and only share content or resources that I either personally use, or can personally vouch for. I might get a small kickback for purchases made through this link, but I wouldn't recommend this resource unless I trusted using it for in own business.
Ok, now let's dive in!!
Contract Templates - I finally got my shit in order, and bought the additional templates that I needed for my website. I mean, that sounds lame, but the freedom and burden that lifted off my shoulders upon purchase and setting up those terms and privacy policies was amazing! And, it was perfectly timed with my new website launch last year! Total peace of mind for protecting yourself. I bought my contracts from The Creative Law Shop that is run by Paige Hulse. You can shop her site with code BROOKEOLSEN10 for an extra bonus on checkout!
Mile IQ - This app is gold. I drive A LOT, and it was always annoying to try to figure out where I went and oh, was that even business mileage?!? Add on top that I would forget to write my starting + ending mileage…. So yeah, this program was a life saver in 2017! It was worth every bit of money they charged, and I will happily renew this month. The app runs in the background and you check the program daily and just swipe left for personal and swipe right for business. It’s that simple! You can get even fancier in the app if you want to categorize more elements, but I’m not interested in that right now. I already ran a summary report for 2017 and have the pages ready to send to my CPA for year end taxes. Talk about feeling on my game! You can read more about MileIQ here!
More of my favorite tools will be popping up in my blog posts soon, so check back soon for more details to save your sanity in business!
