A couple months ago on a mastermind call, I rushed through the list of all the tools, apps, and resources I use in my business.
My fabulous friend and co-host, Mayi Carles, and I were running up against the two-hour clock (our live call platform puts on live calls) on a mastermind call and we wanted to get to all of the questions the lovely ladies in our program put into the questions queue. I gulped down a bunch of breaths after rambling through the entire list. Usually, when I pause in a call like that, Mayi picks right up. And, I definitely needed to catch my breath.
Instead of tackling the next question or moving onto the next point, Mayi’s mouth hung open for a couple of beats and I wondered what I had done wrong.
I thought I must’ve messed something up. I wondered if my screen froze in the middle of my monologue. I wondered if I had bright red lipstick all over my teeth. I wondered if my dogs had started barking like wild hounds and I just hadn’t noticed because I was so zoned in.
Before I could ask what I did wrong, Mayi said, “You have to turn this list into a resource that you offer on your blog. I would hand over every email address I have to access that list.”
I glanced at the chat and lots of the women were agreeing with Mayi. Comment after comment said something similar. They told me it would make an incredible content upgrade. It took me a couple months to work this into my content calendar, but I’ve created a downloadable list for anyone who wants to know basically everything that it takes for me to run my business.
This list doesn’t encompass people, like my virtual assistant or website designer, but it covers all of the things. I tried to include every single resource.
One of the cool things about this file is that there are a lot of free and budget-friendly tools on it. I’m not going to lie. There are plenty of expensive items, but you’ll see how much you can do with limited funds.
