Time saving

Acuity Scheduling • No more time wasting back-and-forth e-mails. No more double-booking with auto-synch. No more missed appointments with auto timezone. Multiple types of bookings. $15/month

Alternative: Calendly (free). Pretty, but client-side user interface requires one too many back-and-forth clicks



Zoom • No more dropped calls, like Skype. Cleanest audio line I've experienced, in 60+ countries! I used it for coaching calls, webinars, screen-sharing, video conferencing, and even watching a movie with an overseas bestie. It also has international dial-in numbers, automatic recording, live chat and break out rooms.

Alternative: Skype (free). Popular, but call quality not as high, calls drop regularly and doesn't work in some of the 60+ countries I've been to.


Financial Management

Revolut • No more hidden exchange fees! I top up my Revolut account in 4 currencies, exchange them instantaneously at the best foreign exchange rate. And when I use my Revolut card, it knows to charge GBP when I'm in the UK, USD when I'm in the US, EUR when I'm in Europe, etc. I love my international life!

Alternative: n/a

Angeline Ambatali • Hire my virtual assistant, she's super dependable, quick to learn any new e-system I teach her, and efficient with her work.

Alternative: Upwork. Hire freelancers with five star ratings + proven project history + portfolio only.


ICDSoft • Web hosting + used since 2003 + crashed only once during 14 years!! + super quick support ticket response time + my longest response time was 11 min (Business Plan $10/month)
Alternative: n/a


Project Management

Asana • Multiple projects (to-do list, shopping list, reading list, ideas list, in progress list). Tasks and subtasks within each project. Swipe right to check off tasks (shot of dopamine), swipe left to delete a non-essential task ( wisdom)

Alternative: Trello. Gadgety, but I prefer simplicity and minimalism.
