Create visual consistency for your brand with luxurious styled stock imagery that is second to none. I use images from the SC Stockshop throughout my online presence and can't sing their praises highly enough.

I use G Suite to manage just about everything between me and my team, as well as with my clients. From handling my emails in Gmail, to organizing client files in Google Drive, to sharing team content in Google Docs, this set of tools does it all! 

Get the most out of your email marketing! I love using Convertkit for both of my businesses, and I can't recommend it enough for creatives who are ready to take their email marketing to intentional new heights.

Easily plan your social content, view images as part of your Instagram grid before posting, and simplify your life! 

Evernote is my favorite way to take notes for both my business and my personal life. I love their desktop app and mobile app that enable me to stay connected on the go.

Schedule emails to send at specific times (and even on specific dates) to ensure you're always replying to emails during your office hours! You can also track sent emails in your inbox, ensuring that your clients will always receive that email with their logo proofs!
