I’m so excited to provide you this concise list so you can get going asap!
My Go-To People to Help You in Life & Business:
❤️LIFE COACH: Lindsay Preston can transform your life! She'll help you work through the crud you are dealing with in your life now or in the past and move you forward so you can make big things happen!

My favorite email provider:
My favorite easy website Builder for selling services:
👉Squarespace is amazing! I have used Wix and others and they are great…but to me, Squarespace is the simple, keeps you within boundaries and easy to integrate with so many other options as you grow! You can try it for free as well :)
My favorite website platform for selling products:
Shopify is the best way to sell your physical products online! I absolutely loved Shopify for many years as I had a gift boutique online for 16 years and the last 5 of it I was on Shopify. It is easy to use, has tons of customization, is easy and is so perfect for selling online products!
*Best course hosting platform AND ALL IN ONE platform - THIS IS WHAT I USE NOW! Every piece of my business is ON Kajabi!
Kajabi is absolutely amazing! I had been using multiple programs in the past to link up email with my website with my analytics tools with my sales pages and more - and FINALLY have it all in one saving me so much time & money! I could go on and on - but it is a great tool to simplify your life if you sell digital courses, workshops or any type of online teaching / learning! And - in fact, here is a 28 day trial link to Kajabi (as the normal trial is only 14 days) and this will give you plenty of time to test and love it! Try Kajabi Here!
My favorite graphics program:
There is nothing you need more for your business than CANVA! Seriously, I use this EVERYDAY! You will use it for anything from your social media posts to photos for your website to images for all kinds of marketing, for emails, for printables and just about anything. I had to use Photoshop for years to do basic graphics for my business and could not be happier that I finally have CANVA to do everything all the time! They have a free plan and and a Pro Plan - and yes, I have the Pro-Plan and love it! You must try Canva!
My favorite social scheduling app:
Tailwind rocks! I was so happy to find this and schedule out Instagram and Pinterest - and even FB Posts - you will be so thrilled to batch work on these and not have to do them every day. I love how the hashtags finder helps me find the right mix of broad and niche hashtags that have helped me tremendously! Try Tailwind - they give a free period and it’s awesome!
