A list of my favorite business tools and resources

As small business owners we wear a lot of hats. So having the right business tools to help us along is instrumental. Here I’m sharing some of the tools I use to run my business along with the resources I depend on so you can simplify yours.



Siteground is where I host my websites and it’s also the hosting platform I use for all of my development sites for my clients.  Siteground offers managed WordPress plans including installation, automated migrations, automatic updates, advanced caching and expert support.  In fact their customer support is the best I’ve encountered in ten years.

Domain Names


It’s my preference to keep where I purchase my domain names and where I host my websites separate.  Namecheap is one of the leading domain registrars and they offer a wide variety of domains. They also include domain privacy at no additional cost which is a big benefit.

Electronic Signature

Hello Sign

I use Hello Sign to have all of my Service Agreements signed electronically.  Hello Sign makes the entire eSignature process simple and seamless.  Clients can initial and sign in different places on the document and you are kept updated throughout the entire process.

Calendar Booking

10 to 8

The ability to allow your clients to book online with you streamlines the booking process and removes all the back and forth. 10 to 8 is a robust booking platform that syncs with your Google calendar and integrates seamlessly with WordPress.

Project Management


Having a clear process and staying organized are extremely important to me so I use Asana to track all my website design projects.  Asana is a platform that will keep you organized, help you stay on track and meet your goals so your business can grow.

Email Marketing


Mailerlite is a simple and flexible email marketing platform.  They have a pretty robust free option and alternatives for paid plans as well. It integrates seamlessly with WordPress and allows for automations that other free plans don’t. And, they have great customer support.
