tech stack faves


There's a reason I'm obsessed with this platform (and so are my clients)! Showit is a drag-and-drop website editor that doesn't require code and produces incredibly elevated results.

Affordable privacy policies for your website that update automatically as laws change - without extra work for you. Nearly all of my clients use Termageddon to generate their website policies (and I blogged about how).

For simple cart software with powerful capabilities, you can't beat Thrivecart - it's what I use to sell my website templates and house my tutorial library, and is a convenient onetime fee instead of a monthly subscription.

As someone who values simplicity without wanting to sacrifice quality - I'm obsessed with Flodesk. It makes the process of designing and sending emails SO easy, and you keep the same rate as your list grows.

xero bookkeeping software

Let's be clear: Anything that makes the financial (especially bookkeeping) side of business more straightforward is a 10 in my book. And Xero is an absolute 10/10. It's a streamlined bookkeeping software that keeps my multiple bank accounts (heyyy, Profit First method) organized to a T. And they offer a 30-day free trial!

Madison dearly bookkeeping

I'm a proudly graduated member of Madison's The Business Bookkeeping Club - a monthly education & accountability subscription that teaches you how to manage your own business books. Madison & team love Profit First too, and are truly the kindest and most helpful people out there (even when someone shows up to Office Hours not really knowing what books even are).
