Being a VA requires you to be an expert multitasker. There are multiple clients with multiple deadlines, all vying for your expertise at the same time. With so many balls in the air, it can be hard to juggle them all at once.

That’s why we put together a list of our favourite tools and apps to help you stay on top of your projects, which will make tackling your to-do list easier than ever before.


It’s an all-too-common occurrence. You’re working on several projects at the same time, and your web browser reflects that. The tabs are numerous and are accumulating at an alarming rate, making it more and more difficult to find what you’re looking for. You’re overwhelmed, and you need a solution NOW!

Enter Workona! Workona is a chrome extension that allows you to clump your tabs together in groups, and switch between those groups seamlessly. No longer will you have to worry about losing your place on a website, and you can say goodbye to having a crowded tab bar (the best of both worlds)! You’ll be able to find exactly what you’re looking for at all times and can pick up exactly where you left off when switching between projects.

Canva Pro

Canva is a great, easy-to-use graphic design app, but the pro version has a bunch of extra goodies that’ll save you a ton of time on your client’s next design project. Canva Pro opens up their entire stock photo and element library to users, saving you time and effort when scouring the internet for design elements. It also has an equally easy-to-use content planner that will allow you to schedule unlimited posts across all the major social platforms right in the same window.

With all these awesome features, Canva can essentially replace a stock photo subscription, a content scheduling software and a design software subscription, all at a relatively inexpensive clip.


Scheduling meetings can be downright hectic. Everyone’s busy and finding a time that works for everyone can require a ton of back-and-forth correspondence. Calendly makes it so scheduling your next meeting is as easy as clicking a button, saving you a ton of sweat equity, while also keeping your inbox free and clear of clutter.

The days may be getting longer but your workday doesn’t have to! Experiment with these apps to see a boost in your productivity today!
