Choosing the right tool for the job can be tough!
I’ve put together a list to help you decide so you don’t waste your valuable time doing days, and weeks, of research. I’ve only included resources that I’ve loved and used for my business or for a client.

HoneyBook is similar to Dubsado, but I believe it’s much simpler to set up and use. The layouts are user friendly and make it easy to find what you need.
I even became a HoneyBook educator because I love their system! (Get 50% off with my link!)
LastPass is an incredible organization tool. It stores all your passwords securely and allows you to share them (without showing them!) with team members, contractors, and clients.
Just download the browser extension and let LastPass take care of the rest.
Zoom is the go-to video conferencing tool for online entrepreneurs. They have everything from free meetings to paid webinars. It also allows you to share your screen, which is one of my favorite features.
ConvertKit is the Queen of email marketing. It’s intuitive and has excellent metrics to help you along. Also, it offers the most features for sales funnels and automations. This is what I use for my own email marketing.
Wave is the perfect accounting software for beginners. It’s free to use and pretty easy to learn. It doesn’t offer as many features as it’s paid competitors, but you still get a lot of bang for your buck.
Canva is the only graphics tool I use. I’ve made everything from my logo, to Pinterest posts with it.
The pro version makes organization easy with the ability to save your branding elements and keep everything stored in folders.
Pixistock is fantastic for stock photos, but they also have a TON of Canva templates and one of the best social media calendars I’ve ever seen. I couldn’t manage my social media without their membership!
Trello is a visual organization tool. Think of it like index cards.
You can write stuff on the front, write more on the back, organize them, move them around, etc. Luckily for us all, Trello is much easier to keep up with than index cards.
Dropbox is a great all-around cloud storage system for everyone. There aren’t any bells and whistles (like the office suites available with Google Drive and OneDrive), but I love using it to store pictures and videos that I want to share.
SiteGround is the best website hosting with stellar customer support! I solemnly swear that I will never recommend BlueHost to you.
If you can afford it, sign up for 3 years at a time. It’s MUCH less expensive when you first join. I’ve been using them since 2017 and couldn’t be happier.
