You know what it’s like to start and run your own business. After all, you’re an entrepreneur, and you’re in good company.
According to an recent article from Forbes, the ranks of entrepreneurs around the United States are continuing to grow. As they change the face of the working world as we know it, they need the latest technical gadgets and gizmos to help them stay on track, provide great customer service and, most of all, keep those profit margins climbing.
This is where apps come into play. Some are free, while others have nominal price tags. Most are never used, or used just once, after they are downloaded. However, there are a few valuable apps out there that entrepreneurs around the country couldn’t imagine their lives without. Those are the apps you need to have on your smartphone or tablet, especially if that’s what your competitors do.
Here are 10 of the hottest apps that men and women who have started their own companies wouldn’t leave home without.
