You can’t expect to meet the challenges of today with yesterday’s tools and expect to be in business tomorrow. Unknown
Here is the audio version of this post. Thank you so much for listening.
So many tools, so many ways to create awesome. I am asked often what my preferred tools and platforms are. And some change quite often, some stay the same. But before I get into the actual tools, here is what you need to know…
No matter what tools you have, they are meaningless without choosing to create, choosing to be consistent, choosing to engage, choosing to create value, choosing to commit, choosing to find the courage to do stuff that matters. And with that, here are just some of the tools I use for creating awesome every day at Passion Squared…
WordPress (I recommend Squarespace for my clients)
Professional Web Designer + Programmer (You can’t afford NOT to!)
Audacity (audio blog)
Social Platforms + Communities
YouTube (video hosting)
WHY these? Because my community and clients engage there. How do you learn where your clients engage? Ask.
Professional Designer (always start here!)
Canva.com (blog graphics, Facebook covers, and so much more!
PicMonkey.com (words on graphics in my own brand font, WIN!)
WordSwag (quote graphics, words over pictures)
PicStitch (lots of graphics in one graphic)
Afterlight (framing graphics)
Webinars + A School Workshops
Client One On One Sessions + Client Team Meetings
Proof Reading + Copyrighting
Spell check (try it some time!)

Keeping My Mind Right
Again, tools matter, but what matters more than tools is commitment, consistency, courage and choice.
