Tools of the trade

I often get questions about what website theme and tools I use to run my website. I decided to create this page to answer all these questions and more. Some of the links below might be affiliate links, meaning that if you make a purchase from one of these links I might earn a commission at no extra cost to you.

Having started several online businesses in the last decade I have tried and tested quite a few site builders, hosting companies, software and tools!

Below are my absolutely favorite tools, programs and companies that I currently use to get my businesses running.


This website is made with WordPress.org. I now use GeneratePress theme for all my sites because it’s user friendly, has great support, it’s easy to customize and a very fast theme.

Bigscoot is my hosting company of choice.

I have used the following email marketing services and I like them both:

Mailerlite and Flodesk for simplicity and design (these are perfect for beginners)


I get my graphics from either Design Cuts, The Hungry JPEG and Creative Market.

I love how easy and user friendly Canva is. I also love Adobe products and Affinity Designer.


This is the only program I’m not that crazy about because it can be slow and glitchy but Tailwind has some great features for Pinterest and Instagram scheduling. I use it for all my sites.
