Entrepreneurship

  • Website: If you are building an eCommerce site (meaning the primary thing you are doing is selling something)-  Shopify.com is my pick. If you are building a content site (meaning the primary thing you are doing is writing), I use WordPress; you can add shopping capabilities via WooCommerce. I love SiteGround hosting and Elementor’s plugin for building pages. Squarespace is also a great content all-in-one platform and HoldSpaceCreative makes beautiful templates for helping professions.
  • Canva: A super-amazing creative platform that has a robust free version. Great for making logos, social media posts, etc. I ditched Adobe Creative Suite for them and have no regrets.
  • Moo: The best business cards around
  • Mountain Practice Journeys (site and Podcast): For introverted, highly-sensitive solopreneurs looking for guidance on starting a practice in a helping profession, this is a wonderful, authentic resource.
