With our first podcast episode in 2019, we're kicking off with software subscriptions - discussing investing in your favourite productivity tools, how to reduce your spend and a list of Francesco's current paid applications.

To skip Francesco's list, head to 14.30 minutes into the podcast.

*Your Checklist for Subscriptions *

  • Set a Budget: Budgets help us to reduce chances of over-spending.
  • Create a Runway Sheet: Summarise how much you'd be spending over 6 month or on the total subscription.
  • Pausing Holidays: Save money by puasing on holidays or periods of time you are not using the tool
  • Research into the Company: Do your homework on what the company's values are. Doist do this well, and so do Buffer.

Let me know if you want a topic covered on the solo episodes, ping me on email: francesco@keepproductive.com - our next episode: "The Personal Project Manager: A New Wave of Tools" - to help you consider between list and project managers.
