My Favorite Business Tools

What I use to run my business on the daily

ThriveCart

Cart System / Affiliate Program

You’re gonna be just as obsessed with this shopping cart as I am. ThriveCart is arguably one of the most important tools for my business! This tool powers all of my shopping carts, and my affiliate program. It’s robust, powerful, and has increased my bottom line.

Lyrical Host

Website Hosting

The best website hosting company I have ever worked with. They are so much more than a host – it’s like having your own website manager in your pocket. I’ve never seen another hosting company go so above and beyond for their customers the way they do.

Elementor Pro

Website Framework / Landing Pages

You’ll love how easy it is to create beautiful and effective landing pages, or even your whole website! The drag-n-drop interface is fun to use, and it comes packed with a lot of special widgets to make the design experience easier – no coding required.

Paperform

Student/Client Feedback

I’m obsessed with using Paperform for getting feedback from my students, requesting information, and even for job application forms. It’s so fun and easy to set up – and the fact that you can auto respond when someone fills out the form is amazing.

ConvertKit

List Building / Email Marketing

If you’re looking to not just grow a list, but rather warm subscribers up to your brand and nurture them for many years to come, you’ll love ConvertKit. It’s been a staple in my email marketing for years. There’s no better tool for marketing and making sales through email.

ConvertBox

Super Smart Pop-Ups

I hate senseless pop-ups… like when you’re on a sales page and you get a fricken pop-up for what you’re already reading about. Stop the insanity! I love that ConvertBox gives me sooo much control over where my pop-ups appear and who sees them. 10/10 recommend.

Chatra

Chat Communication system

Answer questions, solve problems, and increase conversions by simply making yourself available to your audience via live chat. You’ll love how easy it is to communicate with potential buyers, and even trigger some helpful info on pages people tend to linger on.

Loom

Screen Recording + Video Hosting

I’m absolutely obsessed with Loom and how easy it makes it for me to record my screen for tutorials (which I often use in my courses) and even if I need to explain something quickly with a visual. You’ll fall in love with how easy it is to use + the end of video CTAs.

Airtable

Organization on Steroids

Behold… lady in the streets, freak in the spreadsheets. Airtable is a multi-purpose database tool that you can use to manage your work, track and organize data, and so much more it won’t even fit into this little box. It’s bigger and better than Google Spreadsheets or Excel!

Social Bee

Social Media Scheduling

If you don’t have a lot of time to devote to being active on social media, you’ll become obsessed with Social Bee. It allows you to create a system of social media posts on rotation that make sense and assure that you’re always marketing what matters.

Screencast-O-Matic

Screen Recording + Editing

My other favorite tool for recording my screen – especially anything that isn’t within my browser. But it’s especially awesome for editing my recordings – cutting out the “Ums” and the pauses during live trainings. It even has built in transcription for captions.

Adobe Creative Cloud

Graphics + Video + More

I use a wide range of tools that fall under the Adobe CC umbrella… including Photoshop for graphics, Illustrator for logos, and InDesign for formatting my ebooks. Adobe is the industry standard in design for creating all of the graphic elements your business will need.

Jarvis

Artificial Intelligence Writing

Never struggle to come up with the right words again. With the help of Jarvis, you’ll create outlines for writing blog posts faster, perfect your Instagram bio, and even write whole paragraphs. Jarvis will take out a lot of the copy guesswork so you can avoid the blank screen.

Otter.ai

Audio Transcription

Accessibility for hearing impaired is an important, ethical business practice. But unless you’re reading a script, it can be a lot of work to transcribe your video and audio content. Otter.ai makes it incredibly easy and almost painless. It’s actually quite amazing how good it is.

Podia

Course Builder + Host

You start using Podia for building and hosting your online courses (plus digital goods, memberships, and webinars) because it’s easy to set up and use. You keep using it because it provides a beautiful student experience that they’ll rave to their friends about.

Quickbooks

Bookkeeping

I’m not an accountant and frankly, I suck at math. But what I do know is that it’s really important that I have an accurate account of the money coming in and going out of my business – especially when it comes time for preparing my taxes every quarter.

Voxer

Internal + External Communication

For when you just need quick communication with your team, your VA, or your business bestie – Voxer makes texting and snippets of voice messages easy (and free!). It’s also fantastic for your coaching call experience if you get the Pro version! I use it for all of the above.

Dubsado

Client Onboarding

The most efficient (and beautiful) client experience you could ever hope for can be achieved with the power of Dubsado. Keep all your client stuff in one place: Proposals, Contracts, Invoices, Emails, and so much more. It’s the ultimate CRM and a staple in client based biz.

Digital Creators

Other brilliant people in business worth discovering

Elizabeth Goddard

Profitable Playground

I consider her to be a major impact on my business, and one of my favorite mentors. I love her quick, actionable, and fun approach.

Dani Fairhust

Organise + Grow

She’s a genius VA with organization skills so good, she can teach it to ya! Streamline your business and watch it grow.

Dani Schnakenberg

Simplified Business Systems

My favorite resource for neurodivergent entrepreneurs who feel like they are struggling to bring out the best in what they do.

HauteStock

Stock Photos

Fresh photos, templates, and graphics every month from one of the top stock photo subscriptions for businesses. A personal fave!

Hello You Designs

WordPress Themes

The best place to buy WordPress themes for the Genesis Framework or Kadence if you are a blogger, coach, or service-based business.

MOYO

Mockups + Stock Photos

If you like my mockups, this is where they came from. You won’t be disappointed in their stock photos either!

Ivory Mix

Stock Photos

So much more than a stock photo subscription – Kayla offers graphic templates, trainings, and a community you’ll love.

Office

Products I use to make the things happen

Blue Yeti Mic

If butter were a sound, that’s what your voice would be compared to thanks to this Mic. I use it to record all of my audio – for courses, video, and narration.

Self-Changing Trash Can

This electronic trash can opens at a wave, seals trash bags shut, and even puts a new one in for you with a button push. Easily the best investment of my office.

Extra Wide Office Chair

I’ve got a big butt and I cannot lie. I spend a lot (like a heck of a lot) of time at my desk. I may as well be comfortable in a chair that can support me all day long.

Logitech Webcam

Showing up and being personable is important in business. I love that this webcam produces high quality video that I’m not ashamed to share.

Selfie Ring Light TriPod

I love this product because it’s not only a nice source of light… it also holds your smart phone – making it perfect for going Live on Facebook or other videos.

Umbrella Lighting Kit

Limo Studio’s kit is really nice and affordable. It’s perfect for overcast days when you need to record or take pictures, but there’s not much natural light,

Mini Ring Light

This is perfect for on the go selfies, food shots, and moments where you just need a little extra light. It clips onto any smart phone, and charges by USB.

Sound Proofing Foam

For those days when the kids outside just won’t shut up, or it’s 8am and someone is blowing leaves, I use a room lined with this stuff to block out the noise.
