The Best Browser Extensions for Solopreneurs

It often comes up to a lot, the subject of the best entrepreneurial extensions to boost productivity. It's taken a few years to adjust and find the perfect balance of extensions that are not only useful... but are lifesavers in my personal and professional life. 

I've compiled this list of my most recommended GOOGLE CHROME Extensions you should add to your browser, right now.


Stay Focused

This amazing little tool came to my attention when listening to an audiobook on productivity. The author suggested finding a program that would allow you to block all websites you are constantly surfing mindlessly. 

What's great about this tool is it will block your websites on a timer so you're forced to stay focused on the websites that you need to complete your work. 

Warning: This is a powerful tool, it will block you for the precise amount of time you set. Try setting small limits first to get a feel is this is a good tool for you.


Grammarly
https://www.grammarly.com/

For those of you who type... this is a must-have. Of course, we are used to using the Microsoft Word programs and expecting them to tediously spell-check all of our work accurately. It's a tool we all rely on heavily when creating simple documents.

Imagine the power of spell-check on EVERY site you use... including this very blog. Grammarly snaps onto your google as a simple extension and will accurately adjust your spelling and grammar as you go. 

My favorite uses for this tool are for my Gmail emails, my social media posts and naturally blogging. If you aren't using this tool yet... well I imagine you've had a lot of spelling errors you may never know.

Honey
https://www.joinhoney.com/

Typically I use Honey as a personal money-saving extension. I've found though that it has benefitted my professional endeavors as well.

This is a simple extension designed to find coupons and discount codes for you at the click of a button. Often when browsing on Amazon or shopping for help on Fivver, Honey, saves me money without any effort on my end. 

Who doesn't love an excuse to save money?

 

Hubspot Sales
https://www.hubspot.com/products/sales

My MOST recommended tool for business owners and freelancers. You can download and use this tool (limited) for free. Basically, it allows you to create e-mail templates and to easily track and log who reads/ views your sent emails. 

This is a secret tool, perfect for tracking your cold email campaigns. It syncs up perfect to any and all of your g-mail accounts and flashes breifly on your desktop when your e-mail has been opened.

Dashlane
https://www.dashlane.com/

If you're anything like me, this tool is a must-have. I struggle tremendously remembering my passwords for almost every account. 

You shouldn't be using the same password for every account. Everyone knows that, and for those of you who heed those warnings... you're constantly forgetting your newest password. 

Dashlane is an incredibly safe password extension you can use to automatically save and update your passwords from Chrome. You can also have this app on your phone and on your desktop as well for easy access. It stores everything from my passwords, my bank information to my Drivers License number. 

The only password you NEED to know is the password that logs you safely into Dashlane.

Screencastify
https://www.screencastify.com/

This isn't a tool that all of you might find useful but certainly, many of you will find this a useful extension. This is a quick and easy company that allows you to record your screen for quick tutorial videos, gifs and screenshots. I tend to use this a lot to showcase my clients website via .GIF file. I also use this frequently to send videos to my virtual assistant or clients asking how to navigate their new site.  


 

Momentum
https://momentumdash.com/

Just a small motivator extension to get your day started right. Hold yourself accountable, add your to-do's, get inspired!
