Small Business Must-Haves

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.

Wave - Easy to use and understand business bookkeeping and invoicing.

GSuite - Get profesh with a you@yourdomain.com email address and use it with Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Hangouts, and Docs.

Shift - For managing multiple email inboxes and communication channels inside one app (and getting all that ish out of your browser tabs).

Asana - I manage all of my client projects in Asana. It's a high-powered virtual to-do list that keeps everyone on the same page and streamlines communication on tasks.

Templana - Prebuilt Asana templates for all kinds of business tasks that you can import to your Asana workspace with one click.

LastPass - Quit blurting out passwords via email and start securely storing and sharing login credentials with Lastpass.

odrive - Sync Google Drive (or other cloud storage) with your computer, so the files you work on are updated in Drive automatically.

Betterment - When you're your own boss, you 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!

Strict Workflow for Chrome - Pomodoro timer to keep you on-task


Email Lists + Social Media

Convertkit - Need a high level of control over your list via ultra-specific tagging, trigger links and drip sequences? Convertkit starts at $29 per month.

MailChimp - Have a super simple email list? MailChimp is easy to use and free for up to 2,000 subscribers.

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.
