If you are a freelancer, small business owner – or a busy parent, you have probably read a lot about automation. Automation of things like social media posting, email marketing, newsletters, and so on. But software is not the only automation option – and it wasn’t the first either.
Subscription boxes are one of the best ways that you can add some joy and have what you need to be delivered every month. There are many options, from home and health to drinks and food.
Put your busy life in automation mode, and check out these subscriptions.
There are more remote businesses and small business owners than ever – and there are things you need every month. Perhaps the best thing about business subscription boxes is that they are typically made by other small businesses – and so are filled with things that will inspire you and help you build your own business. Boxes like The Business Box or Sparkle Hustle Grow are great options (with a lot of practical things every month).
Do you find yourself feeling very Lorelie Gilmore, and no coffee is enough coffee? Then the chances are you have found yourself running out of your favourite beans or blend a little too often for your liking. Coffee subscriptions are one of the best subscriptions available for coffee drinkers who like to try new things but also prefer to avoid needing to make too many choices – busy people tend to suffer from decision fatigue.
