Entrepreneurs truly have to be Jacks-of-all-trades, keeping track of just about all of the aspects of their business, all the time. Luckily, technology has provided many tools that the budding and aspiring entrepreneur can use to make their life easier and to stay on top of things at all times.
Here are five gadgets that every entrepreneur can benefit from using:
1. A smartwatch
Much more than just a way to tell the time, smart, fitness and lifestyle watches come with a range of varying functions. Depending on the device you choose, smartwatches can do everything from keep track of your health and fitness, to let you answer calls and send messages on the go. Often functioning as a complement to your mobile phone, smartwatches allow you to get everything done while getting on with a busy day.
2. Power banks
Everyone knows the sinking feeling of being unable to complete a presentation or task due to the battery on your device giving out. Entrepreneurs should always have charged power banks for their mobile devices and laptops at the ready.
3. An internet dongle
Just like running out of battery power, being unable to connect to the internet when you need to is a completely unnecessary frustration that many entrepreneurs experience. For those instances when you are out of range of mobile internet or a WiFi connection, always make sure you have an internet dongle with you.
4. A portable keyboard
Whether you have some time to kill, or urgently need to alter or draw up documents, a portable keyboard is a very useful gadget for anyone who is constantly on the move. Because it can connect with any Bluetooth-enabled device, users can quickly and easily make notes and write documents directly onto their mobile phone or tablet, without having to try and clumsily navigate a mobile keyboard.
5. A smart wallet
Forgetting specific cards at home or the office is a thing of the past. Smart wallets, whether mobile or standalone, are a great way to ensure that you have all the important bank cards with you at all times. These devices and apps are encrypted, so you don’t have to worry about sensitive information being accessed by malicious parties.
