As a mamapreneur / entreprenuer / work-from-home mom / wife / boss babe (I mean do we have any more names we can give ourselves?) I have come to learn some pretty cool tricks. Not to mention, I've tried every tool and app and resource under the HOT sun. I've rounded up my favorites and some others that I know work like a charm. Whether you're just starting out as a business owner or you've been in the game since no one knew what a blog was, I think you'll LOVE these tools!

- Self hosted Wordpress site hosted by Bluehost or Hostmonster
- Genesis framework - Think of this as the skeleton to your site. The bones that hold it all together and make it work.
- Studio press themes - Think of this as the skin to your site. This is what your users see, what makes it pretty and user friendly.
Membership / Course
- Kajabi - Memberships / courses. This is what I use to host my VIP Member's Lounge and my courses.
Like I mentioned above, if you want an all-in-one solution for your website, digital products, email service, etc. I recommend and use Kajabi
- Mailchimp - I no longer recommend Mailchimp because of major issues reported and they no longer work with important third parties like Shopify
- Convertkit - this is what I used to use and love. Now I use Kajabi but still recommend Convertkit for ease of use!
- Ontraport - robust, ability to build landing pages and sales pages
- Keap - Very robust but all the bells and whistles
