ClickUp

The best task management, planning and project planning app on the market.

This has been a 'game-changing' app that I use to not only map out my goals, track my projects, but also to run my weekly and daily planning. This is the first app where I've been able to seamlessly use my 4-3 productivity method.

Fiverr

Need a blog written? A website built? A spreadsheet to do something incredible? Look no further than the worlds largest collection of freelancers.

I made my business boom with the help of some amazing people on Fiverr. There is some serious talent here that you do not want to miss out on.

Daily Greatness Planner

I've used these business planners for over 2 years and I love them. Not only does it help you plan your business goals and strategy it keeps you focused on what you need to do to hit your goals.

The Best

Knowing which service to pick for your email, hosting, social media scheduling, etc. is a long and time consuming task. I know, I’ve been there and tried them. Here are my top picks that will not let you down.

Namecheap Hosting

Hosting, Domains, SSL and so much more with incredible support.

I've used this company for years and I only left them once. It was for about 48 hours before I decided that I had made a terrible decision and came running back with my tail between my legs.

Their support is incredible and honestly, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

SmarterQueue

I used to use MeetEdgar, then I found SmarterQueue and boy, am I glad that I did.

This isn't just another social media scheduling platform. This takes your management of all your platforms to the next level.

With the ability to categorise, automate and plan, you wont regret making the decision to switch. I know I don't!

ConvertKit

After years of fighting with MailChimp I followed the recommendation of Pat Flynn and signed up for ConvertKit.

At first you'll miss all of the fancy designs of other mailing list software - but it wont last long.

The conversion rates are so much better with simple and effective mailouts. You won't look back.

Evernote

Another tool I've used for years and wouldn't be without.

If you're a note taker, or even if you just need to keep all those important things in one safe place... Evernote is the ideal tool.

Both my personal and business life are on Evernote and without it's quick, all platform apps I would be lost!
