Small Business Must-Haves
17hats - Manage contracts, questionnaires, time-tracking, invoicing, accept payments, bookkeeping and more. 17hats is the Swiss Army Knife of small business management.
Teachable - Create beautiful, professional eCourses. Teachable hosts your entire course, sales page, and handles payments.
Squarespace - The best way to get your business online. If you don't have time to screw around with a website constantly (I'm looking at you, Wordpress) get on Squarespace. It just works.
GSuite - Get your own firstname.lastname@example.org email address and use it with Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Hangouts, and Docs.
Asana - I manage all of my client projects in Asana. It's high-powered virtual to-do list that keeps everyone on the same page and streamlines communication on tasks.
LastPass - Quit blurting out passwords in emails and start securely storing and sharing login credentials with Lastpass.
odrive - Sync Google Drive (or other cloud storage) with your computer, so files you work on update in Drive automatically.
Betterment - When you're your own boss, you also have to save for retirement all on your own, so I have a SEP IRA with Betterment. It's like a 401k for self-employed people!
Email + Social Media
MailChimp - Have a super simple email list? MailChimp is easy to use and free for up to 2,000 subscribers.
Convertkit - Need more control over your list via ultra-specific tagging, trigger links and drip sequences? Convertkit starts at $29 per month.
Buffer - Schedule your social media updates across multiple platforms from one simple interface.
Click To Tweet - Create prewritten "Tweet This!" links and drop them into your website, freebies or email campaigns.

21.5-inch iMac - Heavy-duty computing
