Setting up my Website

My URL / Domain name:
URL / Domain name: purchased through Hetzner [Plus they have a great domain search].  
Going WordPress
  WordPress: Go for WordPress.org (not .com) – it’s free… AND it gives you control over your site [which you’ll need in the long run]!  
My Website Design
  For an incredible theme that you can DIY – I highly recommend Elegant Themes [They have 80 Themes, but you actually only need DIVI and it’s only $69… a steal for what they give you!!! I’ve used it on this site + my FreshSage Site]
Setting up my email list
Only one resource that I use here… and it’s Mailchimp. I love the ease of use, analytics and great design! They are Free [up to 2000 peeps], but I went for the paid option so that I could automate a challenge or two 😉

Geting organised

Keeping all my ideas in one place
Evernote helps me keep track of all my documents, and when I find a page of interesting info – I can clip it… and keep it in a notebook for later reading. I also use evernote to capture and flesh out my blog ideas… then it’s just copy, paste into wordpress! PLUS – you can search images for text which is pretty cool!
Keeping track of Quotes, Invoices, and hours
  I make use of Harvest to seamlessly manage the money side of things. From creating [and sending] estimates[for clients to approve], to sending invoices and tracking hours on a project. For R120 a month, it has saved my butt OVER AND OVER again!
Staying on top of social media
With Co-schedule, I’m able to plan, schedule [ahead of time],and send social media posts from the back-end of my wordpress site [from inside the blog posts]… making twitter and Facebook way more manageable!

Gift 2: Books that will rock they way you think about your biz [+ Life]!
