Last Pass is a password manager that allows you to save and automatically fill in your passwords when you are on a website for which you have saved the password.
So, for example, if you log into your Google account and see a Lastpass icon next to your password, you will automatically be told which different accounts are connected to that page, and when you click on the account, it will automatically fill in the password for you, so you never really need it to remember your passwords.
It's been a lifesaver in my business, especially as I deal with password protection, so LastPass was a big change for us, especially as we use many different platforms.

Reduce browser clutter and increase productivity with OneTab

Communicating with classmates, colleagues, clients or customers online can sometimes be challenging.
It is a convenient way to communicate more effectively with the people you work with or for whom you work, so you don't waste time texting back and forth.
Once you have recorded your Loom video, you will immediately receive a link to the video for instant sharing.
Videos capture not only what's happening on your screen, but also your tone of voice, so there's less misunderstanding, which saves time because you don't go back and forth to clarify what you meant or comment on screenshots.
Best part again?
They have a free tier!
At the time of creating this Instagram post, we were actively using Trello for our entire product and project management.
Asana is a web-based project management platform that helps you stay up-to-date with all moving parts involved in a project.
It has a super friendly interface with movable cards that allow you to list your projects and tasks. We recommend that you upload a profile photo and assign yourself a card for each task for which you are responsible.
It is a psychological trick when you see your face and know that this task is yours and helps you to stay productive and organized.
You may not feel that your work or your life necessarily falls within the realm of project management, but chances are that you do so in some way.
If you are a student: Asana can help you track the deadlines of your projects or study schedules. If you’re studying for a test, such as the MCAT, Asana can help you plan deadlines for when you need to finish studying each section, and how much time you need to spend on the review, etc.
If you are an entrepreneur: your business will have many moving parts that you need to manage.
If you are leading a team or a distributed company: you need a platform where everyone can easily communicate and work together and whose tasks are clearly assigned to specific people.
Complicated projects and lives become much more manageable if you have a good organizational and project management tool that helps you.
As always, best part? It's free!
