BURNOUT-PROOF YOUR BUSINESS PODCAST | WORKFLOW & PRODUCTIVITY SPECIALIST | FREE vs. PAID APPS FOR YOUR BUSINESS | FREE TRIAL | INVESTING IN YOUR BUSINESS | GROWTH STRATEGY
Knowing when to stay on the free plan and when it's time to upgrade to the paid plan of a tool (like Asana/Trello, Zapier, Acuity/Calendly) can be tricky.
Even trickier -- when is it time to switch away from free tools to a tool that is only paid?
Today I'm sharing how I go about thinking through this decision with my clients and for my own business. If you're wondering if now is the time to start paying for a tool, listen in.

Today's Permission Slip:
Each episode I give you a permission slip - a reminder to give yourself permission to run your business and live your dream life on your own terms.
Today I want you to take advantage of those free trials before you purchase a software. They are there for you to test out the app to see if it will work for you and your business. USE THAT TIME!
And if you need a little extra time, reach out to support to see if they can give you an extension! I don’t think I’ve ever actually been turned down when I asked for an extension.
I give myself permission to use the free trial before I purchase any new software or apps for my business.
