Resources

I personally rely on these resources to save me time and money.

I'm constantly experimenting and re-evaluating the best options!

Some of the links below are affiliate links, but I would never recommend anything I don't personally use and love.

Travel

Airbnb – Over the past few years, I've stayed in Airbnbs all over the world in places like Santa Fe, Toronto, Miami, and Italy. Airbnb is a more authentic experience that is usually much cheaper than a hotel. Plus, kitchen access helps save on meals!

Courses

Destroy Your Debt – Are you ready to start living your best life? My debt payoff course has helped dozens of students create a budget, improve their credit score, aggressively pay down debt, and build an emergency fund.

Social Media

Social Warfare – Social Warfare is the only social sharing plugin you need. These buttons are both beautiful and lightning-fast. I especially love the ability to customize images and copy for each channel (including Pinterest). Other cool features? Shareable quotes, Twitter cards, and social proof.
Tailwind – Tailwind is my go-to Pinterest scheduler. I've grown my Pinterest traffic significantly over the past six months, and it wouldn't have been possible without it. I constantly use their browser extension for scheduling and sharing other people's pins.
PostPlanner – PostPlanner is the scheduler I use for Facebook and Twitter. I love the dashboard and how easy it is to reschedule my top performing content. This app saves me many hours every month!
  Pinterest Presence – Kristin Larsen of Believe in a Budget is the queen of Pinterest marketing. She used Pinterest to grow her blog from 1,000 to 160,000 page views a month in a year! This course has completely revamped my Pinterest marketing strategy and saved me a ton of time.

Email Marketing

ConvertKit – I recently switched from MailChimp to ConvertKit, and it's a much more powerful and intuitive tool for email list management. I love how easy it is to set up autoresponders and segment my subscribers!

Affiliate Marketing

Pretty Link – There are a few reasons I started cloaking my affiliate links: easier to track clicks, shorter / more memorable URLs, and one spot to swap links if I change merchants. Massive time saver!
