I created this page full of resources to help you better navigate this online world. There are so many books you can read, so many podcasts you can listen to, so many tools you can use – so I compiled some of my favorites and most useful tools for you to check out and apply to your business! I never recommend something I don’t personally use and love! Please note that some of these links are affiliate links and I get a tiny commission if you decide to purchase.
Moms Mean Business – This book absolutely changed my life as a mompreneur. If you want to be a successful business owner while also being the wife and mom you want to be – this is the book. Erin and Lara did such an amazing job writing this book in a way so easily understood to us mompreneurs and that’s because they both are walking the talk! If you are already a mompreneur, or a mom wanting to start her own business – this book is a must read!
Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn – Pat’s podcast was the very first podcast I’ve ever listened to! In fact – Pat was the one who introduced me to this whole online space. What a blessing it has been to learn from him! If you are an entrepreneur and want to take it to the next level in everything that you do – I highly recommend Pat’s podcast! And on a side note, Pat is just as down to earth, kind, and generous as he is on the mic.
Trusted tools that I currently use:
Bluehost – Bluehost is what I use to keep my websites running. It has been the very first business investment I’ve ever made and the most valuable. Otherwise, I’d have to host my site on Tumblr, Blogstpot, or Notepad – and It didn’t look very appealing. Go Pro!
Mailchimp – Mailchimp has been the first email provider that I’ve ever used, even back in my network marketing days. I’ve since moved around to the next bigger, and better tool – but I’ve always come back to mailchimp (3 times) and will never look back.
Freshbooks – when I started my entrepreneurial journey back in 2012 I was assisting clients with Virtual Assistance and this tool made it so easy to bill and invoice clients. I still use this tool on a monthly basis to keep track of money that is coming in and our of my business. It’s like a personal mini bookkeeper!
Screenflow – I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for this tool. When I first started online, I did a lot of video tutorials. Recording the video and later editing in Screenflow was such a breeze! It is because of this tool that I was able to get consistant video out and even get clients from it!
Dropbox – I use this tool on a regular basis. That’s how I read most of my ebooks that are not formatted for kindle. I upload them to dropbox on my iMac and later read the books on my phone. Back when I worked with clients, the shared folder option kept my work and client files nice and organized.
