While it might be easy to jot down a quick note on a napkin or scrap piece of paper, you can keep yourself much more organized by taking this habit digital. We love Google Keep as it integrates with google docs and is highly customizable. You can jot down notes, add pictures, links and dictate notes via the microphone. Evernote is a widely used app that does many of the same things and links to a wide array of platforms.

Google Voice

Google Voice will allow you to text, receive calls and make calls all for free. There are voicemail capabilities and the ability to have multiple phones ring using just one number. Many people choose to use a Google Voice number for their investment business, with the call being forwarded to their personal phone. This allows them to separate business from personal calls and the ability to keep their personal cell phone number private.


Zoom is an excellent and reliable tool for holding video calls. One-on-one calls are free. There is a cost if you want to be able to talk with a team, however with its great service, the cost is definitely worth it.
