There are a ton of tools, books, resources, blogs, and apps available, but finding the right ones for your business (and your budget) can be overwhelming. After all, you shouldn’t run your business based on the tools available to you — first and foremost, you need to have a good product that solves a problem that people need solved, and a system in place to run your business. Only then should you bring in tools to improve your system, speed up your workflow, and save you time.

Over the last few years, I’ve used my fair share of these tools and I have a pretty good idea of what works and what doesn’t. Obviously, every business is different, so what I think is awesome might not work for you. Either way, below I’ve provided a list of tools & resources that have helped me and my clients in business. Most of these tools I still currently use, some I may have outgrown.

(Keep in mind, I’m affiliated with some of the resources below, so should you make a purchase using my affiliate link, I’ll receive a commission at no additional cost (often it is at a discount) to you. I’m only affiliated with products & services I trust, have used, and I would never recommend a product or service to you that I didn’t stand behind.)


Flywheel :  I have tried every major host out there over the years and I can tell you that managed hosting is everything!  Site speed, security, performance, ease of use, 24/7/365 expert support, and peace of mind  are why Flywheel is the only host I use for my business and my clients businesses.

Hover:  I have found it very useful to keep my domain names separate from my hosting.  This has enabled me to move websites from bad hosts to better ones in order to provide the best service to my customers and my clients customers.  Hover’s no-nonsense affordable domain managment has all the features you could ever want.  Use this link too get a discount when you signup with Hover.


Convertkit : This tool is so important it could go under any of the categories!  ConvertKit is an email marketing tool for entrepreneurs. It is hands down the most valuable piece of marketing software I use in my online business. I used ConvertKit for my clients and my own businesses and I’m so happy with my experience so far. If you’re a blogger, own an online business, or you’re just starting out and looking to build an email list — trust me when I say ConvertKit is the best tool for the job.
