I thought I'd create a page for tools I use. Some of these may have affiliate programs which means that I do earn rewards or a commission if you sign-up via the link, but the things listed here are actual products I use and believe in. You can always feel free to put the company name into a search engine and sign-up directly but it doesn't cost you anything more and helps me to be able to create more content.

The software is audited for security and it is possible to self-host for the more technically inclined.
The company has an excellent philosophy and has free and paid plans. While the price for the paid plans may seem higher than you may be used to keep in mind the company doesn't profit off of your data.
I'm not doing a lot of freelance work these days but Book Like a Boss is the tool I do use to manage scheduling and selling services. It is great for consultants, coaches, trainers, or anyone who needs to schedule clients.
