Adobe is the leader in software for creative professionals. I use the Creative Cloud Suite on a daily basis and they offer a solutions for almost any need. The subscription model allows you to license the entire suite, or only the apps you need - when you need them.

HoneyBook is an absolute game changer for creative business owners. It’s well designed and keeps everything simple while taking out a lot of the tedious tasks of preparing quotes and contracts. Another neat feature is the community building aspect of the platform, touting “Community Over Competition”. With over 50,000 creatives, you’ll often see local lead sharing and collaboration offers. When I switched, I moved all my email templates, quotes, and contracts over and made very few changes to them – however, my lead engagement shot up immensely and I’m spending much less time following up with leads.

Nestify is an AWESOME web hosting service. I've built many wordpress sites over the years, and this is by far the best host I've used. It's super fast, with great support, and automated backups!

Design made easy.
