Keleigh's Favorite Resources
No matter where you are in your business, having the right tools working for you can save you hours of time and help check off boxes on your never-ending to-do list more efficiently than trying to do all of the things yourself.
Business tools are an investment, and before any investment, it's important to know which ones work and which ones don't move the needle — that's why I've volunteered to go first.
I love experimenting with new software, finding all the ways it can improve efficiency. This page is where I report back on what works and what doesn't.
Some of these links are affiliate links, which means I may receive a commission if you make a purchase. However, the cost of these resources has not been increased; in fact, I'm often able to offer you an exclusive discount, and if there is a special deal that I can extend to you, I'll include that below, too!
Every Day Tools
These are the tools I interact with every single day — they're an integral part of running my business efficiently.
Asana is the first thing I look at every day and how I organize all-of-the-things in my business. This is a tool for communication, lists, planning, tracking deadlines, and has completely replaced the pile of messy sticky notes and checklists on my desk.
I use tailwind to upload photos, write captions, organize my feed, and schedule everything to auto-post. Rather than spending 30 minutes every day getting distracted on social media, I spend one hour once to put an intentional plan in place.
Canva is my #1 secret to having great designs without spending a lot of time on the computer… and it's my clients secret to great designs without being a designer! Canva is a must have tool for any business that wants a gorgoeus image, for sure!
This is my absolutely favorite business credit card because it is by far the best cash back option at a rate of 2% on all purchases. I recently switched from my SouthWest card to this card because of the cash back option. When I calculated it, the cashback over the course of a year will be equal to or greater than what i would have paid for flights and now I'm not limited to just one airline. A huge benefit!
ActiveCampaign is my right hand when it comes to marketing – I can collect leads, schedule campaigns to send automatically, see report showing revenue produced by individual emails, and even organize my subscribers by interest, so I can easily give them the content that they find most valuable.

Be Your Own CFO
