As a woman entrepreneur, I am always on the lookout for tools and services that make my life easier, as far as my work is concerned. And I have noticed most of these helpful tools that I use daily are from Google. So if you are like me, here are the 5 Google tools for women entrepreneurs that I highly recommend to make your professional life less chaotic.
Gmail is secure, safe and lighting fast as compared to your mail client or any other email. Plus it has the option to load less when working on a slow connection.
What I love best about Gmail is the power to place promotional emails away from my regular emails. Just make sure your categories are set up right and you won’t have to deal with those random mail unless you really want to.
If you are using G Suite, you can enhance your Gmail inbox too, like scheduling, advanced proofreading, etc.
Google Drive is where you place all your files in one place. Documents. Spreadsheets. Photos. Videos. Anything you can upload can be placed here. And shared with anyone you deem fit.
I remember this one time my laptop broke down and I uploaded my ALL my files to Google Drive because I didn’t have any backup option at that time. Since then, I’m hooked onto Google Drive – it’s one of my favourite Google tools for women entrepreneurs.
Backup your computer here. Don’t waste CDs or USB drives anymore. After all, 15 GB is quite a lot of free space to deal with.
As a G Suite user, I have access to 30 GB of space on Google Drive. And this is why this is one of my favourite Google tools for women entrepreneurs. No hassles about limited storage space!
I take notes a LOT. Sometimes in one phone. Some in another. Some on my whiteboard. Some on a piece of paper. The best way to organise these notes is to keep them all in Google Keep. It’s not very popular because note taking apps are a dime a dozen, but come on, this is a Google app, so why bother with any other?
Keep your notes all in one place. Place reminders where you need to. Basically use Google Keep to make your world a lot less cluttered.

Explore Google Trends. It shows the trending stories by category as well as by country. It can also go back in time to show you the trending stories by category and by country for the time you pick.
This is a great tool if you are researching something in your line of work, especially if you are a writer, or your company deals with content writing services.
An online strategy should be an integral part of your business plan. And one of the first things you need to do is set up custom alerts in your company’s name, your name, the names of your products, and so on, so that whenever someone says anything about your business, you get to know it right away.
If it’s a positive update, kudos to you and your team, so thank the person. If it’s negative, try to respond quickly but in a way that defines you as the good guy.
