Welcome to the Tools page!
On this page you will find resources that will help you on your journey to success. There will be different types of tools and you may not use them all, but choose what works for you and helps you achieve the success you're looking for out of life. Some tools are for personal development, others are for professional success, and some are for both.
The apps and downloads below are some I use and wanted to share with you to help you be more productive and therefore find more success. These apps help with things such as removing distractions while online, time management, goal setting, and more.
Cold Turkey is a distraction blocker that works with websites and apps, it also works on all devices. There is a free basic version that allows you to block websites and a paid version that also allows you to block apps. This is great when you are trying to concentrate on getting something accomplished and need to remove distractions. You can watch a tutorial video by clicking here to learn more about Cold Turkey.

Todoist is a task management app with a pretty straight-forward goal – to help you create digital to-do lists either for yourself or even for the whole team and learn to love an organized life. You can set sub-projects, highlight prioritized tasks, add multimedia notes, and use the calendar view to get a glimpse of monthly tasks.
Todoist integrates with hundreds of apps and even offers several to-do list templates to choose from – so that you don’t have to start writing your task list from scratch.
Why you’ll like it: To motivate the users, Todoist has a fun “Karma points” feature which means that you’ll get bonus points for completing your tasks consistently. As a result, you’re very likely to complete your tasks more efficiently, thus saving time in the long run.

DIY GRAPHIC DESIGN
When it comes to Do-it-yourself graphic design one of the best platforms I have found is CANVA. Canva is an online platform so you don't have to download anything into your computer and can be used across all of your devices (computer, laptop, tablet, cell phone). This makes Canva versatile and creating your designs has never been so easy with their drag and drop system along with other key features anyone can design logo's, social media posts, website banners, etc. with this program. They have both a free and paid version, the paid version is very reasonable. CLICK HERE to get started using Canva today!
When you create video and audio files often times you will want or need a transcription of that file. This is often particularly true for programs and courses, one of the simplest and most cost effective resources right now is a platform called Otter.

CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT
Having a good Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform or software is vital to growing your brand and business. Having a CRM allows you to connect multiple pieces together for your clients or customers in one platform or service. When it comes to this I have a few options you can choose from that I have used, these are in no particular order.
You may have noticed that I have Groove listed above for your website builder platform as well. If you have chosen Groove as your website builder and host you will want to take advantage of using all of their services and making them your CRM. There are other platforms out there but Groove is one of the best I have found for allowing you to have everything in one place for your customer relationship management. If you would like to make Groove your CRM you can start today by CLICKING HERE.
If you would prefer another platform besides Groove then I would recommend ConvertKit. Unlike Groove you cannot build or host a website through this platform, however you can use it for growing your email lists, automations for your emails, landing pages, and more. The integrations aren't as extensive as you find within Groove but I have used ConvertKit very often and for a long time it was my go to CRM and can be useful to you. Like all other platforms many of the features will cost but there are also many that are enabled within the free plan. If you would like to make ConvertKit your CRM you can start today by CLICKING HERE.
You may have noticed that I have Groove listed above for your website builder platform as well as CRM. If you have chosen Groove as your CRM you will want to take advantage of using all of their services including Groove Pay. There are other platforms out there but Groove is one of the best I have found for allowing you to have everything in one place for your business. If you would like to make Groove your payment portal and CRM you can start today by CLICKING HERE.
Square is another fantastic platform and service for accepting payments, especially if you are at a physical location. You can get a free square reader that plugs directly into your phone and allows you to swipe cards on the spot. Square also allows for online transactions for your services and/or products through your store or links you share. I have used square for my business in the past and have no complaints at all, if you'd like to create a free Square account and get your first $1,000 in transactions free of processing fee's for 180 days following signup you can do so by CLICKING HERE.
PayPal is another payment platform I recommend and have used quite often in my business before Groove. PayPal allows you to create buttons for your website, invoices for your business and many other concepts that you will utilize for your business. They don't necessarily offer anything that the other services can't handle but some people feel more comfortable using PayPal so it never hurts to have a PayPal account also. If you don't have a PayPal account you can CLICK HERE and create one today.
COURSE HOSTING OPTIONS
One of the ways you can create passive income while impacting and influencing the world is through online courses. Below you will find a few options out of the many that I stand behind when it comes to hosting your online courses.
