Busy Mama's Resource Guide.png
 

Don’t have time for endless resource research?  
No worries, my love, I’ve got you covered.

I am always getting asked for recommendations of the tools and resources I use to manage and grow my biz.

So I gathered them together here for you.

These are the resources my team and I use every day in my business to help things keep running like clockwork and to keep that needle moving in the right direction :)

NOTE: Many of the links below are affiliate links and I may receive a small commission if you sign up to the specified product or service.  But I only EVER recommend the things that I use in my own business and life.

Make Business Easier

Convertkit

email provider

Let me take a wild guess... 

You've outgrown your free email provider?

I am a big Convertkit fan.

Great functionality, easy to use, great customer service.

Acuity

Acuity

client booking calendar

Sending messages back and forth trying to find a time that works...

Who has time for that??

Get your clients to schedule/reschedule their own appointments, get Acuity to take their payments.  Happy days.

Squarespace

website builder

I made this website myself with Squarespace.

I make all of my landing pages with Squarespace.

Easy to use, beautifully designed templates, great customer service.

Zoom

video calls

I love hosting my coaching calls in Zoom. 

We can share screens, when I want to teach on something technical.  I can record sessions for clients to watch back.

I also use it to host group coaching calls and host or pre-record masterclasses.

Samcart

online checkout

Although my private coaching clients sign up and pay via Acuity...

For all of my courses and other digital products I sell via Samcart.

You can create a product and start selling it in about 5 minutes flat in Samcart. 

As a Busy Mama, I like that.

Tailwind

social media scheduler

Did you know to use Pinterest properly (i.e. strategically) you need to be pinning like 30+ times a day.

Do you have time for that?

Me neither.

Enter: Tailwind.

It schedules your pins for you.  Winner.

Get Creative

Creative Market

marketplace for creative stuff

This is where I bought that handwriting style font I use.

I also buy textures here (like the marble or gold foil or pink glitter you see around my website)

GIMP

image editor

Kind of like Photoshop but free.

Definitely not intuitive to use but I use it to make text filled with a texture (like the pink glitter in my logo).

I also use it to improve or scale photos sometimes.

Canva

graphic design

Graphic design made super easy.

Social media posts, ebooks, website graphics, you name it.

My team and I do it all in Canva.
