  • I would have to agree with your tools. 🙂
    Google docs is a huge help especially because we work from home. 🙂 It’s easier for us to collaborate with the team. I’ve also been using Evernote for work and for personal use. The one thing that I would like to add on the list is a time tracking software. Time Doctor helps us boost our productivity by motivating us to work better and harder.
