Would you believe me if I told you that I make a full-time income working only 2 days a week? Ask my clients, I swear it’s true! I have been able to create a career that pays me well, keeps me grounded, and allows me to take time off to do the things I love the most. All thanks to SYSTEMS.
If you’ve been wanting to find more freedom in your schedule, you need to use systems to your advantage as well. Take a look at the tools I use to strengthen my business.

3 TOOLS TO HELP YOU WORK LESS, MAKE MORE & DO WHAT YOU LOVE
Acuity* is my go-to online calendar that allows clients to book calls with the click of a button, prepay for client sessions, and receive reminder notifications for when and where we’ll be meeting. No more telephone tag or endless rescheduling – Acuity makes it super easy to schedule calls.
Dubsado* has saved my business on multiple occasions, mostly by making it almost too easy for me to send client proposals, contracts, and invoices in one fell swoop. Because of Dubsado, I have been able to streamline my entire web design business and create custom website makeovers in as little as FOUR WEEKS with zero back-and-forth about lost passwords, admin mistakes, or any other annoying hangups. Dubsado is the sole reason why my past client Christina Galbato told me I was “the most organized person she’s ever worked with.”
3. Trello or Asana
Where would I be without my project management systems Trello* & Asana? Hmm, probably curled up in fetal position under my blankets. Seriously, though! Project management is not my natural strong suit, but both of these apps have allowed me to outline my projects in such a way that my clients feel relaxed and comfortable during projects with a lot of moving parts. Even my former project manager husband agrees that these systems have been life changing for my business!
