“ 11 Free Things for Entrepreneurs That Make it Easier To Working from Home” written by Guest Contributor.

How would you like to work from home? I can tell you from experience that it’a the best. No alarms.  No commute.  I get to work in my yoga pants.  And, of course, freedom with my schedule.

I could never go back to a 9-5 job.

I do have to admit though there are a few minor drawbacks. Somedays I miss adult interaction. My little dachshund Chocolate is not much of a conversationalist. I noticed I tend to latch on to anyone who will strike up a conversation at the gym.

And since I am responsible for my own schedule  I can tend to get distracted. Especially with YouTube videos of Jimmy Fallon-Tonight show game videos.

11 Free Things for Entrepreneurs That Make it Easier When Working from Home

I put together a list of a few free tools I’ve used to help me with these minor issues and added in a few tools for marketing your message.

11 Free Tools For Entrepreneurs When They’re Working from Home

Noiz.io

Noiz.io is a really cool free app called an “Ambient Sound Equalizer.”

There are times when you’re working that you want some background sounds and music is  a little too distracting

Noizio gives you beautiful nature sounds to have playing in the background while you’re working. It ‘s kind of nice to have the option to have the sounds of a roaring fire or ocean waves while you are working in the comfort of your living room. I’ve used It a few times and to be honest It get’s a little annoying after  about 10 minutes or so. It’s nice to have the option though.

Skitch

Since I work on line I need to be able to communicate in as few words as possible sometimes. With Skitch get your point across with fewer words using annotation, shapes and sketches.

Its really fun. You can use a screen shot take a new pic, sync with Evernote or upload a pic. Here is an example below. You can use arrows or draw text box or use the sketch option.
