My top ten tools (and books!) for business:

Acuity Scheduling

Having been recently acquired by Squarespace, means this tool is only going to get better. Acuity is what I use to handle all my scheduling needs. If you’ve ever been on my calendar, chances are it was through Acuity.

AirBnB

Any time I travel for business (or pleasure) I always look here first for places to stay. The app is easy to use and offers some unique and cozy spaces, at often times cheaper rates than hotels.

Calm

Staying on top of your mental health is so important. To help me deal with the stress of business and a hectic schedule, I like to use this easy-to-use app for guided meditations. Worth every penny.

CreativeLive

There’s always more to learn, and starting out, I had to learn a lot. CreativeLive was where I was able to get a lot of reliable and affordable knowledge fast.

Fiverr

If there was ever an entrepreneur’s version of a candy store, this is it. The number of projects I’ve had completed through Fiverr is beyond me as this point, and it’s saved me countless hours. Whether you want to hire someone for a quick project or look for some extra cash yourself, this is a great place to do both.

MailChimp

Email marketing is often underrated, but it’s worked wonders for building and engaging my community. MailChimp offers plenty of customization and integrates with most anything else out there.

Moo

Business cards are often some of the first things entrepreneurs seek out. The quality and capabilities this company offers is unworldly and actually makes me proud to hand out my card.

TransferWise

Perhaps the most transparent company to ever exist makes it super easy and DIRT CHEAP to send and receive money in different currencies. I even use TransferWise with family and friends because they are that convenient.

Vivo Life

It’s great to get all of your nutrition from whole foods, but it can be hard when you’re busy and on the go. Vivo Life is my delicious insurance policy that ensures that I get all the nutrition I need while running my business (and being a dad).

Zoom

What would I do without Zoom!? This is the best video conferencing tool around and with the Pro plan, it’s extremely easy to use and integrate across all of my different business tools.
