Grow or Start Your Own Spiritual/Heart Centered Business With These Tools:
I’ve carefully crafted this life for you with love. Everything here I have actually used, either in the past or am currently using. AS you’ll see, ease of use is #1 for me when choosing which products I use. I’m a huge DIYer, and 100% self taught on all of my online tech knowledge. Trust me, if I can do it, so can you. So without further ado here is my list of favorite must have tools for starting and growing your spiritual business (online or in your hometown.)
(please know that while some of these are affiliates that I may receive compensation for, I only share what I actually use or have used and know works well.)

Do they have an app? No, you’ll want to visit their website.
THE BEST WEBSITE PLATFORM I”VE EVER USED: WORDPRESS.ORG
WHY I LOVE IT: Very DIY, a “Theme” for everyone, you can design it to look the way you want it to loo, and do whatever you want it to do. This website you’re on now, mine, I created 100% on my own, I’m self taught with zero previous tech knowledge. Anytime I want to know how to do something on my website, I google a YouTube tutorial and follow it step by step. This is my favorite tutorial for creating your 1st WordPress.org website. Oh! It’s FREE btw 🙂
DO THEY HAVE AN APP? YES
SOCIAL MEDIA MASTERY:
FOR SCHEDULING POSTS: HOOTSUITE
- Why I love it: Free 30 Day Trial of HootSuite Pro
- Schedule and automatically publish 100’s of messages
- Manage and post to multiple Social Profiles
- Add up to 9 Team Members to your account
Free up your time by scheduling your posts in advance so that you’re always there when your community needs you even if you’re at the beach or playing with your kids. Again, ease of use is my #1 reason for loving this. I’ve tried others including Buffer but Hootsuite won everytime.

FOR YOUR EMAIL / LIST:
SUPER SIMPLE EMAILS: MAILCHIMP

DO THEY HAVE AN APP? YES
OPT-IN FORM FOR YOUR EMAIL NEWSLETTER: MAILCHIMP FOR WORDPRESS PLUG IN
Why I love it: FREE, Create multiple forms for any page on your website or blog, Fully customizable colors and fonts, as always- ease of use…
App? No this is a plug in only, but Mailchimp itself does have an app for checking on your lists and newsletters, just no the plug in (which is a fancy word for a program that runs on your website)
ACCEPTING PAYMENTS: PAYPAL
Pay Pal is by far the simplest way to accept money for online transactions, you can integrate it with your Mailchimp and WordPress seamlessly. Clients don’t even need a pay pal account to use it and they accept all major credit card, while depositing directly to your back account. LOVE! I’ve also used Square in the past but this is so much easier.
DO THEY HAVE AN APP? YES , they have an app for accepting and sending money.
