Who said that life of an entrepreneur was easy? Yes, your are your own boss and you dictate your own schedule, but on the other hand, you juggle everyday tasks, meetings and other responsibilities. Moreover, you’re constantly on the move, trying to get the work done. When you’re away from your desk, it’s common to get in different unpleasant, frustrating situations that can negatively affect your business. Let’s look at solutions, in the form of apps, to some of the more common problems faced by on-the-go entrepreneurs.
Oh My Precious Computer, I Miss You
Rarely did you need to access your office computer while you’re on the go, admit it. It’s not that you weren’t prepared for that meeting or presentation, actually you brought all necessary documents, but old friend Murphy mocked you again. Somehow you keep missing some relevant information – usually stored on your desktop computer. Miles away, unfortunately.
Luckily, there’s a way to access your files from a computer with help of mobile devices. TeamViewer app offers effortless, quick and secure remote admission to Mac, Windows and Linux systems.

You need to sign a contract, a check or other document, but you aren’t in the office to do so. As the result, you need to postpone it and reschedule it. It can be really frustrating and stressful. Then you’ve probably wished: “If only a teleportation machine existed!”
Ok, it’s not a teleportation machine, but it can be helpful. HelloSign is an app that allows you to elegantly sign documents on your iPhone or iPad on the fly.

Why is it that you always seem to have to take an important call when you’re away from your office? Naturally, you can’t memorize all necessary facts, so impulsively you’re looking for a piece of paper to write down some crucial things that mustn’t be forgotten. If only your secretary could be there and take notes.
