Tools and resources

1Password: my password manager of choice. I wrote about it the importance of using a password manager.

Basecamp: awesome project management software for teams. The founders run a thoughtful blog on productivity.

Blue Yeti microphone: amazing microphone that will make you sound better than using your phone’s or earphones’ microphone.

Calendly: for scheduling meetings. Just connect it to your calendar and people can schedule a meeting with you when you’re available.

ConvertKit: easy-to-use, reliable email marketing. Allows you to target your emails much better than MailChimp.

Fantastical: much better than Apple’s Calendar apps.

MindNode: mindmapping app for Apple devices. A great way to get your thoughts on “paper” before you start working on a project.

OmniFocus: sophisticated task management software. Check out my guide.

PDF Expert: tired of the slow Adobe Reader, but need a few more features than macOS’s Preview? Use PDF Expert: it’s blazing fast and it’s chock full of features that will save you time.

Tunnelbear: when you’re working from a coffee shop, it’s good practice to secure your connection with a VPN. Tunnelbear is super easy to use and is beary full of puns.
