Tools I Use

Here are the tools I use and love for running my one-person business. Some links are affiliate links – purchasing through them supports me at no extra cost to you.

I use Framer to build and host this website. It's powerful and easy to use. Subscribe with the partner25proyearly promo code to get 3 free months on a Pro annual subscription.

I use Hey for email and calendar. It offers a fresh approach that I absolutely love.

I use Zapier for event automation and various tool integrations like Stripe with ConvertKit and others.

Simple website analytics that does everything I need to understand from where I get leads and how well they convert.

I use ConvertKit to run my newsletter. It's a feature-rich, creator-focused tool. I've been using it for years.

Checkout Page
I use Checkout Page to collect payments. It has flawless integration with Stripe and Rewardful affiliate program. I highly recommend it. It's beautiful, easy to use, and has no transaction fees.

I use Publer to publish on X, Instagram, and LinkedIn. It's by far the best social media scheduling tool I've used.

I've used Bear to write and sketch notes for many years. It's a beautiful app that is a joy to use if you are in the Apple ecosystem.

I host Explain Ideas Visually Course & Community video content on Vimeo.

I've used the free version of Figma for all my designs for the past two years. How I make my visuals and use Figma exactly you can find as part of my Explain Ideas Visually Course & Community.

With Loom, I record feedback sessions for the Explain Ideas Visually Course & Community members. It saves me a lot of time as it uploads the recordings automatically and makes them easy to share.

Hope it helps!

But I know how fun it can be to buy new tools that you don't need, so keep this in mind.
