Resources

Welcome to the Front Burner Resources page! This is my list of the tools and favorite things I use for home and business. Some of these resources are forms I've created and some are websites and tools I have used and still use to make it happen. As I think of more, and you share what you need, I will add more. Feel free to share and use as much as you need.

    Trello

    I discovered Trello because I needed a better way to track projects my teams are working on and to be able to hold everyone accountable without micro-managing. I use Trello boards to organize my real estate projects and clients and for organizing all the aspects of my podcast. It's good not for just business too. I'll also be using it for my daughter's upcoming college applications and scholarship projects.

    The Big Leap- By Gay Hendricks

    This is one of my favorite books of the year. It's a total mindset shift. This book will help you define your "Upper Limit Problem" (and eliminate it), find your Zone of Genius, and live a life full of abundance, love, and success.

    The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women- Dr. Valerie Young

    Did you know there are FIVE types of imposter syndromes?!? Perfectionist, Superwoman, Natural Genius, Soloist, and the Expert. I dedicated an entire Front Burner Podcast Episode (023) to Dr. Valerie's book and how imposter syndrome keeps mompreneurs from "pressing GO". If you are feeling stuck or feel like imposter syndrome may be holding you back, I encourage you to get this book.

    Canva

    I'm a bootstraps kind of entrepreneur. So anything I can do myself that looks like a professional did it... I'm totally IN! Canva is that kind of tool. I'm not a graphic designer but Canva sure makes me feel like one! Ever since using Canva I've designed logos, business cards, IG posts, FB posts, business flyers, banners, (my personal favorite) infographics, you name it! It's very user-friendly (something I look for with any tool I'm thinking about using), has a ton of stock photos (the Pro version has over 2 million), and best of all I can keep all of my designs in one place! I can't tell you how much time and money it has saved me. I use the paid Pro version but there is a free version as well. Click the link and get a 30-day free trial.

    Wix

    I started using Wix in 2016. I like it because, first, it met my criteria of a user-friendly platform. When I was considering Wix, I thought it had better templates than Squarespace. If you're selling products or services they make it easy to do so and collect payments online. I like to be in control of my content; changing things when I want. The Wix platform gives me the freedom I need to do that. The options are pretty expansive, but it can be a bit overwhelming when you just want to make a quick decision. My advice: know how you want your website to look before you get started. They have several pricing options with the typical pay-per-month or less expensive annual payment.

    Google Domains

    Search and choose your domain name. Pricing starts at $12 per year.

  • dropbox.png

    Dropbox

    If you're not using a cloud-based storage platform you need to get one soon. I've found Dropbox to be the most compatible with all of my applications. If I need something, I don't have to go somewhere else on my device to get it. Dropbox integrates with almost everything. It offers both monthly and annual subscriptions starting at $11.99 per month. Click the link to sign up and we'll both some additional free storage. Who doesn't want free storage?

    The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

    If you are going to pursue your dream, start a business, or elevate that side-hustle, you are going to need to hone in on your communication skills- especially with your spouse. It's the difference between acknowledging the bouquet of flowers he brought home for you after your first big sale, rather than arguing about the laundry you'd prefer him to do. It's about making sure you know what really means love to that person and learning how to speak that language, even if you don't fair high in it yourself. My husband and I have read this book more than 4 times together and (over 12 years later) we still reference it in our communication with each other. Add this book to your library.
