Yes my loves, it is in fact that time of year. Back-to-school time!

As I’ve said before, I LOVE back-to-school time because you feel all the butterflies of possibility and you also have an excuse to get new folders and notebooks so it’s truly a win-win.

But once the first-day jitters settle down, you gotta get down to business. And by “business” I mean homework (unless you’re an entrepreneur and have a side business which doesn’t surprise me because duh you’re a bossgirl and you’re reading this, in which case we will specify school business!… my middle school teachers would NOT be happy with that run-on sentence!)

I’m all about a good productivity hack, and a lot of the time you can hack your way to better school-skills with an app.

That’s why I’m jazzed Levo League just released 8 Apps to Make Going Back to School Just a Little Bit Easier

Some of my personal favs from the list:

  • Freedom (strong arm your distractible self into actually getting work done lol)
  • Happify (yay for mental health activities!)

One app that deserves a spot on the list of back to school life hack apps: IF (also known as IFTTT for “if this then that”). Check out some of their back to school recipes for ultimate life hacking.

Lucy Ross | Editor-in-Chief

I went to NYU for Film & TV and had the entrepreneur’s spirit since being a tot when I contracted chores out to my older sister for a profit (ha!). I run Hello Lucy Design (a web management and design biz) full time as well as Editorial Direction for LikeABossGirls.com. As a full-of-energy go-getter, my motto is “Why the heck not?”. I'm a mid-western girl who has worked for the BBC in London, Nickelodeon in NYC, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. One of my proudest accomplishments was serving as Co-Director for three consecutive years for the Fusion Film Festival of NYU, celebrating women in film, TV, and new media.
