Skillshare is one of my absolute favourite places to go for learning new skills quickly! In particular my favourite Skillshare class has been Get Stuff Done Like A Boss: Design Your Workflow and Double Your Productivity in 21 Days. It’s a must for anyone who ever feels overwhelmed because they don’t have a system for taming the chaos of email, ideas, and documentation. (Not just in a business context, but a LIFE context!)
Freeagent is probably one of my favourite tools of all time. It is probably the most fun you can have with accounting (I’m not even joking). Designed for small business and entrepreneurs, you can see all of your finances at a glance, send estimates and invoices, manage expenses, and keep everything totally organized come tax time. It is one of the most valuable tools that I use in my business, and have been using it since I first started my business. Cannot recommend enough! (Free trial, + 10% off if you use this link)
I always use and recommend Shopify for building gorgeous e-commerce websites. It’s incredibly easy to work with for both developers and clients alike. Add products, adjust inventory, set shipping prices, and you’re ready to go. They handle the hosting as well, so no need to worry about security or SSL.
I recommend Drip for most email marketing and automation needs. It’s one of the first tools I recommend to my clients as it helps easily segment users, automate campaigns based on behaviour, and send more personalized emails to your audience.
I use Elegant Themes to build beautiful premium WordPress Themes: Elegant Themes. I use and highly recommend their Divi template for it’s flexibility and ease of use.
Create beautiful, next-generation online forms with Typeform, the form & survey builder that makes asking questions easy & human on any device.
NeuYear is where I get my absolute favourite yearly and weekly planning tools. I get a Neu Year calendar every year for yearly planning, and I use their Weekly Dominator planner which works really well with the 12 Week Year system.
RescueTime is highly recommended for those who wants to manage their time. It’s an app that will help increase your productivity by monitoring your computer use and letting you know your distractions.
