The tools I use to run a business I love while I travel the world
The tools I use to run my business
This page includes affiliate links. If you click and purchase, I may receive a small commission at no extra cost to you (in some cases, you’ll even save through these links). I only recommend tools I’ve used and love, or think you will love.
CONVERTKIT – ConvertKit makes email marketing so simple. Advanced features and user-friendly. And their customer service ROCKS. I’ve tried others… they don’t compare.
CANVA PRO – My favorite tool for creating any graphics, whether for my website or social media. The Pro version saves me time and money and is worth every penny. It stores all of my brand colors and fonts (so I never have to look up hex codes) and lets me resize images with a single click. Use it for lead magnets, webinar slides, and more!
TAILWIND – This is what I use to schedule and automatically publish posts to Pinterest and Instagram at the best times for maximum engagement.
LASTPASS – Save your passwords and they’re instantly available on all your devices. It’s essential for me and a godsend when working with VAs. Free or pro version available.
DIVI – WordPress theme that I use to build all of my websites. No need to spend thousands on web design and no coding required.
NAMECHEAP – Whenever it’s late at night and a brilliant business idea strikes, Namecheap is where I go to purchase the domain name. You know, just in case. 😉
CREATIVE MARKET – If you’re “graphically challenged”, this site is like crack. Get beautiful branding templates, logos, fonts, and more. Look for their bundles!
SOCIAL WARFARE – More than just stylish social share buttons. Set custom images, titles, and descriptions so when people share your content, it looks and reads the way you want.
launch & scale
TEACHABLE – Monetize your knowledge with unlimited online courses! Teachable will host them for you. Instant payouts, and the Pro plan allows you to create an affiliate program to help you sell your courses.
clients & coaching
THE CONTRACT SHOP – If you work with clients or need contracts for any part of your business, these contracts will save you time, money, and potential legal headaches!
CALENDLY – Schedule meetings without the back and forth “what time’s good for you?” emails. Sync it to your calendar and let clients book around your existing schedule.
video & audio
AT2020 USB MICROPHONE PACK – I studied audio engineering so I know a thing or two about microphones. This is a great, affordable microphone for your podcasting, webinars, livestreams, online course lessons, or other video sound. Comes with adjustable audio boom and headphones. I love this mic.
LOGITECH C922 WEBCAM – I didn’t realize how bad my built-in computer webcam was until I got this Logitech. WHAT. A. DIFFERENCE. The built-in mic isn’t bad either for everyday use such as Zoom calls. Otherwise, I use this camera and my AT2020 mic.
RING LIGHT – Light up your face for video so you look your best! This one that I use comes with 3 different color temperatures and adjustable brightness. Includes tripod and camera or phone holder. If you’re recording in low light or don’t have natural light in your room, this will make a huge difference.
