Sanity-saving tools and resources.
Below you can find my absolute favorite tools to:
- Save tons of time, energy, and stress
- Batch and automate time-consuming business activities
- Access a team of experts about stuff I have zero knowledge of (and don’t wanna learn)
I will never, ever list something here that I haven’t used – and paid for – myself.
I’ve built my own business from the ground up using these tools, and I only provide honest recommendations for what’s actually been useful and valuable for me.

Send emails with ease: ConvertKit
Email marketing is, has been, and always will be the most essential part of my business. I can live without everything else (even my website) but please don’t take my ConvertKit account!
ConvertKit is my personal go-to for a few reasons: their customer support is great, they have tons of free resources to help you learn, and it’s really easy to use. It’s never too early to start building your list, so sign up for free RIGHT NOW.
Trustworthy web hosting: Siteground
I’ve had my fair share of *terrible* experiences with web hosting providers—e.g. my website constantly going offline and dealing with unhelpful customer support advisors—but I found my saving grace in Siteground!
I’m no expert when it comes to websites, so I need a company with an outstanding customer service team who can help me with everything (and explain it to me in simple terms). Siteground wins on all counts. Highly, highly recommended.
Create Awesome Images: Canva
Canva is a magical tool I use on a daily basis to create every image, document, or PDF I need (including the ones on this page). You don’t need to know anything about graphic design; their smart templates make it super easy.
Their free version is amazing and for a while, it was enough for me. But once I started to get more serious about my business and wanted to make fancy-looking graphics, I signed up for the Pro version and I haven’t looked back since!
