TECHNOLOGY

I’m using SiteGround to host all my websites right now (FYI) and if you use this link, you’ll get SiteGround’s best running hosting deal.

ClickUp is life and after trying many collaboration tools, ClickUp is the one for me. I currently use it to host Client dashboards and for podcast task management.

Headliner is the 1 never the 2. I use this site to create all of my and my clients’ captioned audio and videograms. With this link you’ll get 2 weeks free of Headliner’s Pro Plan.

Flodesk email designs are super pretty and intuitive. Perfect for anyone looking for an user-friendly mail option. With this link you’ll get 50% off your first year.

Musicbed is who I always turn to for licensed music. I’ve been using it for my personal podcast and any videos I create since 2018. With this link you’ll get 1 month free of Musicbed.

I use Dubsado to keep track of interview request forms and other kinds of lead capture forms (e.g. surveys) for podcast listeners and people who want to be guests on my show or others. With this link you’ll get 20% off your first month or year.

Dropbox is the best. I use it to keep track of  podcast episodes and assets and to share them with clients as well. It hasn’t failed me yet. If you download the desktop app with this code, you’ll receive 500 MB of data.

EQUIPMENT

The Zoom H6 is unmatched. I recommend it all the time to anyone inquiring about equipment. It’s great for interviews and my favorite part is you can hook up your own external mics.

Wired headphones will always reign supreme to me. And these prove my point. I bought these to replace the ones I’ve had since 2018. These are great for editing and recording your podcast.

No regrets.

The tricky thing about the Zoom H6 is that it only has 1 audio jack for headphones. No worries, this splitter allows you, your co-host, or anyone you’re interviewing face-to-face hear what’s going on as you’re recording. It’s a lifesaver.

I really like this mount. It’s durable, portable, easy to work, and holds our mics like it promises.

These are cute and allows you to flaunt your style while you’re podcasting. They also help to keep that pesky spit sound and hard plosives out of your audio. It’s also fun to let the person you’re interviewing keep their cover to remember your interview together.

These mics work and are super affordable. I’ve been using them for three years now.

Hook these cords up to your mic and your Zoom H6 with no problem. Plus, they’re long and can put some space between you and your co-host or interviewee while recording without disturbing the sound.

BOOKS

I read this book the first day of the year in 2023. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

About the book: “Manson makes the argument, backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade but on learning to stomach lemons better.”

The Big Leap was referenced in almost every mindset book I read, so I just had to see what all the fuss was about. It’s a wonderful book and will have you consider where and why you self-sabotage.

About the book: “Working closely with more than 1,000 extraordinary achievers in business and the arts, from rock stars to Fortune 500 executives, whose stories are featured in these pages, the book describes the four hidden fears that are at the root of the Upper Limit Problem.”

loved this book. I related a lot to Rachel Rodgers’ stories and felt empowered by the end of the book.

About the book: “In this book, Rachel Rodgers – a Black woman, mother of four, attorney, business owner, and self-made millionaire – shares the lessons she’s learned both in her own journey to wealth and in coaching hundreds of women through their own journeys to seven figures.”

One of my coaches recommended this book to me and I totally see why. I loved this book and have participated in one of the author’s programs because of it.

About the book: “Denise Duffield-Thomas has been through the whole financial roller coaster herself – she has probably made every financial mistake possible! Finally, having had enough of underearning, she dedicated a year to practicing everything she knew about the law of attraction and applied it directly to money.”

OTHER

I used a planner all through college, but for some reason never made it through one after I graduated. This planner has changed the game AND it’s undated so I don’t feel any guilt when I skip a few days or…weeks.

Protecting my business and my clients is important. And thanks to Coaches and Company, I get to make sure I have real and legal contracts for everybody’s sake. There’s a contract for everything–including for Podcast Guests.

Ever heard of a Commonplace journal? It’s a journal you keep all your notes, quotes, findings, and more that you want to keep track of. It’s not meant to use like a daily journal, but instead meant to compile knowledge and resources to turn back to (e.g. Your podcast content pillars). This is my current commonplace journal and I love it.
