Recommended and mentioned products

  1. Zoom unifies cloud video conferencing, simple online meetings, group messaging, and a software-based conference room solution.

    freemium $14.99 / Monthly (Pro - Great for Small Teams)

    I also use Anyword, and this one's a little bit of a cheat, but it's essentially an AI writer for little writing assignments. So if I need to come up with an editorial, or a promo for a blog post, I'll use Anyword to quickly generate it. Zoom is my chosen video tool, mostly because I understand it and I don't want to learn a new tool! Trello used to be in my power house, but now I use a plugin called Tracked for...
  2. Infinitely flexible. Incredibly easy to use. Great mobile apps. It's free. Trello keeps track of everything, from the big picture to the minute details.

  3. A messaging app for teams who see through the Earth!

    I'm also really, really strict about my blocks of time, and I didn't use to be. I used to say, well, the time's blocked for this, but I want to do this, so I'm going to do that. And now, I really ask myself, why don't I want to do that other thing? Is it a cop out? Am I trying to avoid something I don't want to do? Am I procrastinating? Or is this really a higher priority than that? And if it is, we need to make a...

  5. Helps users prioritize their work and personal calendars

    Megan Killion Consulting is what I consider to be my day job, and the time for that is very variable. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday are my long days where I work 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, take a short break for dinner and bedtime with my family, and then I'm back to work by 8:30 PM working on Coven Cloud. I occasionally set aside time for Coven Cloud during the day when I need to, but I normally just check up on it during...
  6. Connect your audience to all of your content with just one link.

    freemium $6.0 / Monthly (Linktree PRO ($60 USD paid annually))

    I also use Linktree a lot for social, and Canva for graphics. I used to spend hours of my day in Photoshop and Figma. But now, my graphic design team creates all the elements in Figma and Photoshop, and then when I need to create something on the fly, I can do it in Canva in two minutes. I can not say enough about Canva, it's the best graphic design tool out there, even over professional graphic design tools. If...
