I have tested every recommendation on this page. Many of the resources listed here are crucial to running my own business or my client's. An important disclaimer is– a few of these are affiliate links (aka I partnered with the company because I use the product and proudly endorse them – so I may receive a small commission if you pay to sign up & you may also get a deal!  Win, win!)

#3. GET A CRM (CLIENT RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE)

There are hundreds of CRM's for Agents and if set up properly, it will change your life, bring you way more money, and save you time but it needs to be set up properly or you will just be spinning your wheels, again.  I only recommend CRM's that actually work well, sync properly and have excellent support.  Set up a 30 minute strategy call with me to find out if we can help you. CLICK HERE.

 

#4.   HOST YOUR WEBSITE

#6.  SANEBOX: INBOX SANITY

  • I cannot live without this software called SANEBOX.  It does keep me sane and my inbox clear.  It does even more than that.  If I want a reminder about something every monday at 10 am.  I can send an email to everymonday10am@sanebox.com and it magically appears in my inbox.  It also recognizes where I put emails and then move it, in the future, for me.
