Planners + Books

The Content Planner

⚡️Stressing over social media? You could have digital exhaustion. It's indicated by feelings of inadequacy, frustration and desperation. When you stare at your phone, computer and inbox, all you see is a big question mark, right? Even now, you're overwhelmed by what to post next. 👑 How to solve your digital exhaustion: 

✅ Be PROACTIVE. Create a plan for your content. Write it down. Anticipate the holiday rush. Schedule enough time to get it all done. Then, track your progress and keep movin' on up! That's why I LOVE The Content Planner. Crush your goals, take control of your blog and social media content! This is truly the only planner that has worked for my business, and trust me, I've tried them all!

Economical solution to help get your best vocal recordings with your external microphone. A great add-on if you record any kind of audio.

Financial

Qapital

Get $5 once you complete your first deposit by clicking the link above!

This is the app that has changed the game of saving for me. I have been able to FINALLY wave goodbye to the days of confusion and stress about saving for taxes. 

It automatically withdraws money from your account and puts it into an external savings account. There are no fees to set it up or transfer funds. There are lots of different ways you can use Qapital for both personal and business savings. 

Qapital allows you to set up “rules” for savings, which basically function under a “if this, then that” premise. The rule that is the equivalent of rainbows and unicorns for me is the “freelancer rule.” if a deposit comes into my business checking account, 30% is automatically deducted and put into my Qapital account. Translation=I automatically save for taxes, and that the money is out of sight, out of mind. #winning
