The Freelancer’s iPhone: Productivity solutions for independent professionals
by Dave Caolo on Jun 16th, 2009
Last summer I started to fantasize about working for myself. I pictured a home office, afternoons with the kids and life as the boss. My employer maintained a similar fantasy, and a few months later they went out of business and left 120 of us high and dry. Synchronicity is cruel. Thanks for that, Carl Jung.
I’ve learned that working solo is 1 part thrilling, 90 parts horrifying and 9 parts educational. Also, I’ve found the best setup for my iPhone to help me through my self-employed day. Here I’ll describe the apps, settings and hardware that I’ve found most useful. Feel free to share your own.
