Creation & Planning

The Content Strategy Planner
The only tool I use to plan out and develop my blog, email, project content strategies and more. (Even if I didn't make this planner myself, I'd still recommend it to everyone.

Pages for Mac
My absolute favorite word processing tool for creating and designing eBooks and more. (Now available on Windows for iCloud account holders.)

DayOne Journaling App
An all-in-one journaling app I use every day to either brain dump my "Morning Pages" and task list or, well, journaling.

Scrivener for Mac (iOS and Windows)
This is one of my favorite writing tools. I use it for emails, blog posts, product copy, books and more.

Website & Email

ConvertKit (Email Automation)
This robust email marketing tool is my go-to for email marketing automation recommendations. I've been through MailChimp, ActiveCampaign, [and one other that's completely slipping my mind right now], and CK takes the cake for usability, flexibility, and customer care.

Squarespace (Website Platform)
My “I just want it to be easy, nice looking, and functional” website builder. Squarespace is my top recommendation to create and host your website, domain, and a bunch of other technical things. With their 24/7, prompt and helpful customer service (who don’t abuse canned responses), Squarespace has been my go-to for website and course design, hosting, and more.
