  • Have to make figure out a way to offer a workshop on a dime? I've got the cheapest, multi tasking tool to show you!
  • Ready to protect your digital assets? I share with you my legal docs provider so you can CYA.

You need it. I know where to get it. Just look below.

Productivity Tools

Google Calendar

I revolutionized not just my work day, but my weeks, months, and yes, even my life using Google calendar. Trust me, you CAN be an entrepreneur and have a personal life whilst being productive and not neglecting the most often forgotten to do list item... self care. For me, that's Google Calendar.

Acuity Scheduling

The partner app I used with Google Calendar to revolutionize my life is Acuity Scheduling. This $10/month tool is a beast for any bootstrapper and for those of you wanting to up level, it's the queen of scheduling tools, from paid recurring meetings to scheduling potential client calls!

Course Creator Resources

LearnDash

LearnDash is one of the most powerful LMS platform around. It works right on your WordPress site and is a one stop shop for one off workshops, free courses, and large multi media courses with several modules of content. Some of the biggest online names use LearnDash... like ProBlogger, Digital Marketer, WPElevation, and InfusionSoft.

WooCommerce

WooCommerce is one of the must haves for every WordPress site. WC can handle single payments and subscription payments. PLUS there are a handful of plugins that can help you create custom order forms and thank you redirects... just like the expensive software but for pennies on the dollar.

Website Resources

Beaver Builder Theme, Themer, and Plugin

For those of you that have been around a bit, you know I love me some Seva. Well, Seva has some company on the list of my favorite tools... #AllThingsBeaverBuilder. Oh. my. WORD! Websites, funnels, optins, custom footers, unique course pages... you name it, Beaver Builder can help you create it IN MINUTES! It's a real time drag and drop page builder that runs lean and mean. Service is exceptional. The affiliate program is amazing. User interface is exceptionally easy. The best thing???  The cost is UNBELIEVABLY affordable!!!

Bridge Addons

Bridge Addons is a free plugin that ads some ninja functionality (advanced modules) to Beaver Builder. Pricing tables, testimonial sliders, custom buttons and icons, and info boxes are just a handful of my favorite modules.

TermsFeed

My privacy policy, terms of use, disclaimer statement, and earnings statement... all of them are from TermsFeed. This is no generic form generator either... you have to go through a series of questions about your business whilst the program generates the proper legal sections of your documents. Super affordable and NECESSARY for every website owner!

GDPR Cookie Consent

I tried out a few different cookie consent plugins when all the GDPR deadlines were looming... this is by far the easiest to configure and implement. Plus, it's FREE! So unless you plan to alienate everyone in the EU, get thee a cookie consent on thy website!

Akismet

Tired of spam in your server mail inbox? Akismet is the king of preventing spam! I went from dozens of emails per day to absolutely zero after I installed Akismet. I get a decent amount of website traffic every month, too. So if you're planning on running with the big dogs via SEO, then you better protect your site from spam. Or you'll be as busy deleting emails every. single. day.

Google Analytics

Data, my friends. Data is the answer to every question you have as an online service provider. You HAVE to know what content is getting traffic, where they fall off along the way, which content is converting... and many other stats that are necessary in order to work smarter, not harder.

Yoast SEO

Even if you don't know the basics of SEO yet, you can still install Yoast on your site and let the user friendly interface help you become a keyword/content ninja. Even masters at SEO use Yoast to help streamline their process, dotting all their I's and crossing all their T's.

Funnel Resources

Seva, formerly ConvertKit

Most people don't realize that the heart of a sales funnel is the email content, hence, the email marketing. By far the best email marketing service provider around is Seva. Hands down the easiest user interface of any email software I've used in all my years online. Think the power of InfusionSoft and the ease of Beaver Builder, that's Seva.

Their service is the BEST! And the company philosophy... well, let's just say it's something I aspire to.
