FREE Online Tools that can Grow your Small Business

If you have ever started a small business you will know that often you have to grow your business on a shoe string budget. Here are some free online tools that you can use to make your make business grow.

Wave provides business with ten or less employees with accounting software. Wave is a cloud-based, integrated software tool for small businesses. The software includes invoicing, accounting, payroll, payment collection and more. It also includes a platform for the user to manage their personal finance along with their business finance. However, users of this site will have to pay to use the payroll software.

What I love about this software is that you can create excellent invoices that you can tailor to your
unique needs for customers. Your invoices can be shared to your customer via a unique link. Once your customer views the invoice. You the business owner will see that reflected in Wave. If you own a small business but accounting is not your strong suit, this software simplifies the process for you. It is very user friendly.

The draw back to this software is that some of the futures are only available for persons operating a business in The United States or Canada.


Jotform is a personal favourite of mine. JotForm is a web based form builder; that allows the user to create forms by dragging and dropping various fields on a template to create a form.

You can create what seems like any document that you need for your small business. What makes Jotform ideal for the small business users is that it  you can integrate these forms into your website, blog, email or facebook page at no cost to you.

When you integrate JotForm into your site and you can receive real time messages to your email when someone completes your form. A copy of the completed form is also in the email you receive.


Canva instantly turns you into a graphic artiste. With Canva, you can create newsletters,  blog headers, Facebook covers, business cards and the list goes on. Canva is very user friendly, you can also upload your pictures or purchase pictures from them at a minimal cost. Once you have created your desired design you can download it as a picture and share it with your friends.

Out and About- Columbus Park Jamaica

The Discovery of Jamaica

On May 5, 1494 Christopher Columbus, the European explorer, who sailed west to get to the East Indies and came upon the region now called the West Indies, landed in Jamaica. This occurred on his second voyage to the West Indies. Columbus had heard about Jamaica, then called Xaymaca, from the Cubans who described it as “the land of blessed gold”. Columbus was soon to find out that there was no gold in Jamaica.

On arrival at St Ann’s Bay, Columbus found the Arawak Indians inhabiting the island. Initially, Columbus thought these Indians were hostile, as they attacked his men when they tried to land on the island. As he was determined to annex the island in the name of the king and queen of Spain, he was not deterred. Columbus also needed wood and water and a chance to repair his vessels. He sailed down the coast and docked at Discovery Bay. 

Columbus Park is said to be the location that Columbus first discovered Jamaica.
