Tools & Resources
These are some of the tools and resources I've used over the past 15 years. I hope you find the list useful.
Accounting & Bookkeeping Software
There's nothing better for managing your accounting and bookkeeping than Quickbooks. It's easy to set-up and you can control your sales and expenses in one online platform.
Calendar & Scheduling
I wasn't a fan of online scheduling apps for a long time but recently began using Calendly and it has been a time management gamechanger. Acuity is another great one.
CRM (Customer Relation Management)
There are many options to choose from for database management. Many of my clients favor Zoho and SpeakerFlow because they are robust CRM systems.
Marketing Tools & Services
If you're a do-it-yourself kind of person, I highly suggest using Canva. This platform lets you design anything! They recently added a video function that allows you to record yourself making your PowerPoint presentation. Great add-on for the virtual world. Social media posts, presentations, flyers, graphics, and much, much more.
