Me with my first iPhone 🙂

It’s been 10 years.

Wow! Time sure does fly by. I remember when the iPhone first came out and how excited I was. I didn’t immediately jump on the bandwagon and go buy one. I waited awhile. Just until they had got rid of some of the kinks. Then I jumped and never looked back.

I did a post a few years back with my first iPhone. 2 posts as a matter of fact. You can read them here and here. But I wanted to revisit just how far this device has come and how it has helped me all these years in my business.

How The iPhone Has Helped Me Run My Business

Now you know I am a big fan of tech and utilizing tech to help me stay productive and organized. The iPhone has played a major role in that by helping me keep my client’s files and my own calendar at my fingertips. As well as stay sane with my music and audio books.

When the iPhone came out gone were the days where I had to lug around my client files when I went on a job. I also didn’t have to carry around a planner anymore. That was huge in my book! The best thing of all; I was able to capture my ideas and notes on the go without having to carry around sticky notes or depending on random sheets of paper.

Apps, Apps Galore!

The invention of the App Store was a game changer. With that you have no excuse for not being organized. There is literally a app for EVERYTHING! Some of my all time fave apps are Evernote, Nozbe, Asana, Dropbox, and Google Keep just to name a few. I also have apps for collecting money, monitoring my money, games and creating awesome images for my social media and website.

There is so much power in this phone. Now I know what you are saying…”What about Androids?” I hear you. I think they are great too. I had 2 androids and they worked great. I was able to find comparable apps when I made the switch. But the iPhone wooed me back. It’s just smoother and more polished in my humble opinion. AND this is a post about the iPhone so…

All in all I’m glad that the iPhone exists. Would my business be where it is today without it? Probably, but it would have taken a lot more work than it has. And frankly I don’t want to think about a world without the iPhone. So here’s to you iPhone! Thanks for making my business a lot more streamlined and productive.

What’s your iPhone story? I would love to hear about it in the comments below.
