Resources

All the tools I use as an entrepreneur and writer. Because who doesn't love to know what everyone else uses?
(It can't only be me, right..?)

CREATIVE TOOLS
  • Scrivener is a word-processing, outlining, and formatting app/software designed for writers. "Scrivener provides a management system for documents, notes and metadata." (Wikipedia)

  • Medium to host my blog and serves as my favorite reading platform for finding other writers online, and content to share in my social media queue each week.

  • Tekukor A5 Dot Grid Notebook is a bound journal which I use for several different things: A personal journal, a bullet journal, and a notebook for each project including novels, one for story ideas, and one for this website!

  • iPad Pro with Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard for hand drawn designs and lightweight, on-the-go travel computing. (Squarespace doesn't support website alterations from "a mobile device" though, so I keep a MacBook Pro for that—see below).

PRO TOOLS
  • MacBook Pro for all my computing needs. They outlast all laptops in their class and offer a simple, easy-to-use interface and "only the best" applications and software. One of my favorite things about Apple products are never having to worry about dealing with crappy antivirus software.

  • Bullet Journaling in a Tekukor A5 Dot Grid Notebook to maintain my personal undertakings, tasks lists, week-to-week schedule, etc.

  • ConvertKit Email Marketing Platform to run all of my email sequences, campaigns, weekly newsletter, and funnels.

  • Squarespace to run, content manage, and host my websites. It's a solid content management online-based software to create great-looking websites with lots of built-in storage and more. I like never having to update it and their forum and customer support are assets.

  • Good To Great: Why Companies Make The Leap...And Others Don't is a study-based book on elite companies that maintained their ranks fifteen years or longer. Great takeaways for even solo entrepreneurs.
