Recommended Tools & Resources

Ever wonder, what do I need to start my online business? Or what tools could I use to better manage my time, health and life? Here's a comprehensive list of ALL the tools I use to manage my life and business. 

Quick note, I’m an affiliate of some of the companies on this page, which means I receive a commission whenever someone makes a purchase using my code or link. This doesn’t cost you anything extra - it often will actually save you money! As an affiliate, I’m able to snag some sweet discounts. I wholeheartedly endorse these brands, and I only recommend products/services that I use in my real life and straight up ADORE. Enjoy!
