The Basics

  1. Leadpages. Can’t rave about this tool enough maybe because I’m a funnels, marketing and overall tech geek and leadpages is hands down the easiest most effective tool for building converting landing pages. Not only do I use it for my funnels but I also use it to host webinars, video replays and the occasional home page. Click here to check it out. 

  2. Convertkit. My autoresponder of choice. It’s the perfect cross between mail chimp and infusionsoft/ ontraport. It’s easy to use and does not include the hefty price tag that comes with infusionsoft/ ontraport. Click here to learn more about convertkit and give it a go.  

  3. Squarespace. My website and my blog. Very user friendly.

Graphic Design

  1. Canva. Graphics, images, quotes, pdfs… want them to look professional and gorgeous? This tool is a must use!

  2. Picmonkey. Another tool I use for my graphic design. Like Canva it’s a drag and drop kinda tool and like Canva you can use the FREE version with amazing results. (You can learn how to use both right here)

  3. Placeit. For those mockups and image placements without having to be super tech savvy.

  4. Pages. Yet another tool (comes free with your macbook) that I use to create workbooks and some graphics.

  5. Google Docs. Also used to create workbooks and worksheets plus custom resources for clients that are easily shared.

  6. PDFescape. Used to make those worksheets even more professional. You can add fields - so it’s fillable and you can make the worksheets clickable and interactive.

  7. SmallPDF. No one wants to wait 4 hours to download your pdf… I’m sorry we just don’t and this resource helps you to compress them and make them smaller. It’s also great for merging your pdfs (especially from Canva since only 30 pages can be made on Canva at any given time)

  8. CompressPNG. This does the same but for your images

Organization, Marketing and Client Work

  1. Google Suite of Tools (Google Drive). Don’t own excel or microsft word or powerpoint? Google drive to the rescue. FREE and works pretty much the same. You can even download the apps to your smartphone and work on the go.

  2. Keynote. For slideshows and presentations (but you can also use powerpoint, Canva and the free Google sheets)

  3. Adobe Creative Suite. An inexpensive option to getting your hands on powerpoint, indesign and those other tools that otherwise would put quite a dent in your pocket.

  4. Google Calendar. Syncs with EVERYTHING.

  5. Sunrise App. Keeps my google calendar updated on my phone - because hey us lifestyle business owners are always on the go.

  6. Gmail + Boomerang. Replying and keeping your inbox empty made EASY.

  7. Calendly. Still the easiest scheduling tool out there. There is a free version that I used for a long time but when you start offering multiple meetings you can add additional options and best part it syncs seamlessly with Google Calendar.
