Evernote is the best app to organize everything. It is available for both mobile and desktop version and easy to use. You can keep the tab on all your expenses (both personal and professional), make notes, create a slideshow and plan your every move.

Trello is a visual collaboration tool that lets you create boards for everything. It is an essential app for women who work from home. Here you can create boards to pen down everything which is on your mind. For example, I have three boards on Trello right now- Ideas, Working on and Accomplished. Ideas, where I have to write down every idea that I want to share with my readers on this blog; Working on boards is home to every ongoing project and the Accomplished board contains everything that I have completed so far. So, whenever I open my Trello account, I get to know what’s going on with my ideas and where to project my priority. It is time-saving and helpful for any woman who works from home.

As infopreneur, you need to read important articles, news and trends to know the market where you are working. But with kids and house works, it is not possible to read everything in a given time.

Admit it, whether you work from home or go to an office, you are the guardian who takes care of your family’s health. It is important to give your kids all the nutrition they need to grow.
