One of the best ways to save time, money, and energy is to use the right tools to run your business smoothly.

Confession: I used to be stuck in the mindset of wanting to do everything by myself and being very hesitant to invest in tools that I know will help me with my business.

Today, I trust in my abilities to make smart decisions for myself. Invest in the necessary tools that will propel you forward and save you time, my friend!

Today I want to talk about some tools that I’ve found to be extremely useful. 

My life has been transformed by these tools, and I want the same for you!

My favourite business tools, not in any order:

  • Active Campaign – E-mail marketing, CRM, Sales pipeline, Automation, Landing Pages, Forms… the list goes on. It’s easy and affordable for every business size.
  • Acuity – There are multiple scheduling tools out there, but Acuity has been the most flexible and affordable I have found for my business.
  • Shift – Having multiple apps in one inbox like emails, storage or apps used day-to-day without a million tabs open is a lifesaver.

If I had to pick 3 resources I couldn’t live without, it would be these 3.

Of course, I use quite a number of other resources and love them as well but I wanted to keep this list concise.
