The Small Business Toolbox is your place to find free and low-cost software and services to help grow your business.

The resources I post are usually easy to use and will provide some value to your business.  All of the tools are ones that I either currently use or have used in the past.  I don't go into much detail here so I encourage you to take some time and explore each one to see if it will be of help to your business.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for tools, you can contact us here.

Adobe Spark – A free creative software tool that lets you create animated videos, graphics for social media and stand alone web pages.  It's a great suite of free creative tools and a nice set of beginner tools as well if you have kids interested in design.

Charlie – Free app that crawls hundreds of online sources to help you prepare for a meeting with someone.   You connect your online calendar and social media profiles and Charlie does the rest in gathering information about the person or business you have a meeting with so you are better prepared.

Canva Design Course – Canva, the creators of the super (and free) design tool for non-designers, has a free intro design course.  If you want to up your design skills and get better at creating compelling social media graphics, this is a great free course to take.

Never wish life were easier, wish that you were better.
