Here is a list of books, tools, resources, and more that I find make life a little bit easier, more productive, and more meaningful.

I’d love to hear from you. Have any great books, tips, tricks, resources, tools, etc…? Shoot me an email!

My Favorite Gear

Bose QC20 In-Ear Headphones
Without these headphones, I would have certainly lost days or even weeks worth of focused work over the last few years. These headphones are hands down the most important purchase for anyone working in a busy environment. I personally work out of a coworking space and often spend time in coffee shops getting it done. Without these headphones I would be far less productive.

Apple Airpods
While the Bose headphones mentioned above are perfect for staying focused during work, the Apple Airpods are perfect for taking calls and going on short walks in between work sessions. They are also perfect for travel. After getting a pair of these I can’t stand going back to wired headphones while talking on the phone.

My Favorite Business Tools

Asana
I have joked over the years that Asana is the heart of my businesses. If my bussinesses had a heart, it would without a doubt be Asana. It is the very thing that keeps me and my staff accountable, on task, and projects on time. I would be completeley lost without it. The price has gone up over the years, and there is a lot of competition out there, but I can say with confidence that it is still worth every dollar, and the competition just can’t keep up.

Gsuite
Becuase it is Google. I still am not sure how I feel about the company as a whole, but their suite of tools from Google Analytics, and Search Console to Google Sheets and Drive make it hard to go anywhere else for these services. Keeping everything organized is a breeze and they continue to upgrad their products, as a good mulit billion dollar company should.

Pipedrive
Pipedrive saved my sales tracking ass when building my first company nobox creatives and have continued to use it for every other business I have built. It is affordable, effective, intuitive, and the support is unbeatable. I have been a huge fan for years now and hope you become one too. The link is an affiliate link that gets you a 30 day free trial vs the usual 14 day trial. Hope you enjoy using it as much as I do!

SEMRush
SEMRush is a game changer for anyone that wants to actually make an impact with SEO. Their keyword research tools, social media analyzers, and competitive landscape tools (just to name a few) make marketing online so much easier. I cannot recommend their tool enough.

Envato
From WordPress themes and plugins to stock video and music, this is the company I wish I had started years ago. They are killing it and for good reason, they offer amazing products, customer service is on point, and they are constantly improving everything they do. Amazing company and a must have resource for anyone building a company.

Clickfunnels
I have been using Clickfunnels for a while now and they have built an amazing group of products. I mainly use them for landing pages but there is a lot that you can do with their platform. If you need built on the fly sales funnels that follow best practices for conversions you need look no further. The affiliate link is for a 14 day trial. Go on, make shit happen.
