5 absolutely free and incredibly useful project management tools - plus helpful hints for nonprofits, writers, and solopreneurs
Luckily, as a freelance strategist and storyteller, I can justify the time I spent testing (and procrastinating) by sharing what I learned with nonprofit leaders, writers, solopreneurs, and like-minded productivity explorers.
In other words, you can benefit from the spoils of my procrastination. Here are my five favorite absolutely free and incredibly useful project management and productivity tools which are worth every second I spent testing them.*
I love figuring out how things work. I read instruction manuals for new gadgets - paying special attention to the "troubleshooting" section so I can anticipate potential problems. I drive my chiropractor nuts asking questions about why he is adjusting "this" joint to help "that" pain. And although I suspect she is exaggerating, my mom swears that my first word was “why?”
I’m a “passionate geek” about advocacy. A citizen’s right to tell her elected officials what she wants is, to me, an essential part of democracy. Google any political or social issue and you will find someone who advocates for or against it. The environment. The second amendment. Education. Foreign Affairs. Public Safety. Infrastructure. Animal Rights.
Advocacy is voting intensified. It’s freedom of speech. If you're in a group, it's freedom of assembly and association. It’s how we tell the government to spend money and shape policy to better reflect our values.
And I love it.
Includes professional topics, as well as thoughts about politics. I also keep a blog on Medium that includes these, as well as more personal posts.
