Resources to Help You Be Great

Welcome to my Resources page! For your convenience, links are included to take you directly to my go-to tools for operating my businesses, supporting my clients and maintaining productivity within my team.

 

MARKETING

I use Bluehost to host my websites, the backend is easy to understand and use.

Over the years I’ve used several different email service providers, I’m currently using Mailerlite and loving the automation features and interface.

My business cards are often a conversation starter because of their shape. Order your square business cards from Moo.

If you don’t have a graphic designer on staff to create your marketing materials, GetStencil can help.

Canva is also a great budget-friendly option for graphics, and I also it for creating digital downloads.

Create engaging videos for social media with InVideo.

Instead of storing your paid content on Youtube and hoping nobody finds them for free, host your videos online with this tool.

I leverage livestreaming as a tool to increase brand awareness, add subscribers and sell online. I have a Mac and I use Ecamm for my face-to-camera broadcasts.

My go-to tool for doing face-to-face interviews via livestream is BeLive – it’s super easy to add your logo and show text on screen during the broadcast.

TEAM, TASK & CALENDAR MANAGEMENT

Instead of bogging down my computers with files I store everything in Dropbox and its available to me and my team everywhere.

We use Trello to plan launches and I outline courses and product ideas on the go.

If you don’t want to share passwords (I don’t), use LastPass to grant access to your accounts without compromising account security.

Acuity is the online scheduler I prefer to use when I want to allow people to book appointments without needing to have a conversation with me.

To be as efficient as possible with managing client social media accounts and my own business accounts, my team uses Publer for scheduling.

SELLING ONLINE & MONEY MANAGEMENT

If you’ve ever purchased an ebook or workbook from me, you were on this platform that I set up to handle payment and delivery automatically.

As a small business owner you’re probably busy and find it difficult to keep up with managing your money. I’ve been a Taxbot customer since 2011 after starting my first business. The mobile app keeps me out of trouble.

Want to sell online courses or create a membership? My #BabyStepstoGreatness Academy is built on Invanto.

EQUIPMENT

I usually livestream across multiple platforms simultaneously. I have this webcam for my computer, use this tripod if I broadcast from my phone and have this ring light permanently set up at my desk.

I can change my livestream & video backgrounds using this portable green screen.

I also carry a portable charger to keep my phone battery alive.

If I’m broadcasting on the go I use this clip-on ring light, this microphone and minimize shakiness with this.
