Learn how to create a website shortcut (or a fake app lol) for websites that don’t have an app for you to download.

Follow the steps below to copy the link to your homepage to create an “app-like” button for easy access every day. You can create this shortcut on any device, like for your:

  • Desktop Computer
  • Android phone
  • iPhone
  • Windows Device

Why are website shortcuts critical for successful entrepreneurs? Think about why we all love apps. It doesn’t take a lot of clicks to get access to what we want.

Okay, Boss, so think of all of the websites that you use for your biz, esp. our Breakthrough Boss Inner Circle members. What websites could you utilize this quick shortcut for to eliminate procrastination and distraction?

Speaking from experience, and as the efficiency Queen! Unlocking my phone, tablet or computer to get straight to the point allows me to prioritize my biz before anything else.

I have a website shortcut for my Breakthrough Boss Inner Circle modules and my most used biz resources.

Try it out for yourself.
