Reading/Learning

Blinkist

This is my go-to app for reading/listening books. Blinkist is an app (or website) that I personally use on a daily basis. It helps me unwind from the busy world surrounding me and broaden my horizons in as little as 10 minutes. 10, 15, 20 minutes is all it takes to read a summary of a great nonfiction book from some of the best authors in the world.

Blogging Tools

Canva

Canva

If you haven’t heard of Canva yet, you are in for a treat! This beautifully designed online photo editor enables you to design presentations, social media graphics, and more with thousands of beautiful layouts.

I use Canva every single day.

Download an app or use it in your browser. It is super popular because of its ease of use (a baby could use it!), stunning templates and thousands of free resources like photos, elements or stickers.

Income School

Jim and Ricky will teach you everything about blogging

These guys taught me how to make a website, find the content to write about and that people are searching for and keep me inline with an easy to use a checklist of 60 steps so I don’t give up when the going gets tough.

If you ever wanted to quit the rat race or simply make a side income, watch their YouTube videos or sign-up for their Project 24 and start making a killing!

I cannot recommend these guys enough because they transformed many people’s lives (including mine) with their course and their outlook on life and business.

Theme Acabado

Acabado is slick and fast

I use this super-fast WordPress theme on some of my other websites. It was made by the guys from Income School.

Acabado was designed to achieve a 100 on Google’s Page Speed Insights testing tool–without resorting to AMP. Even with lots of images. Even on mobile.
