Tools &Resources

I have read, tried and created my fair share of educational materials and business tools and resources over the years. I know what works and what doesn’t. Here is a treasure trove of recommended resources for you.

Some of these are new – others are oldie goldies that have impacted me along the way. All are inspirational books
that offer clarity and wisdom for fulfillment and growth in different life realms.

My Top 10 Tools and Resources

Sometimes simple is best. You don’t have to be an expert at everything but having the right online platforms to keep you productive will allow you to master how you spend your time and effort. Here are some of my favorite online tools.

REMINDERS – my favorite online ‘to do’ list that syncs to all my devices

ASANA – for tracking, managing and collaborating on big projects
PENZU – for online journaling
EVERNOTE – for note taking and saving lists and links.

TIME BLOCKING – It’s my superpower so it gets its very own category. Read why here.

ICAL – or your online calendar of choice that will sync to all your devices and allow you to time block.
CANVA – a simplifed graphic-design tool website
LOOM VIDEO – screen & video recording software. Has changed how I work!
INTERMEDIA ANYMEETING OR ZOOM – for online meetings and webinars
OUTSOURCING – through Upwork or Fiverr or whatever. Get it off your task list and focus on what you do best.
