I really hope that 2017 has been an amazing year for you. In today’s post, I’ve joined together with some of my friends to bring you our favourite finds from 2017. These are things that are helping us create our ideal business and life.

Here are my 3 favourite finds for 2017
Monzo – This one’s helped me manage my money better – I am so in love with this card with App. I love everything about this growing company. This started out as just a prepayment card but they’ve upgraded it to a current account now. It helps me to see exactly what I’m spending and where and in which category. It’s a completely FREE card. When I’ve told people about it before they’ve said but you get an app with other cards. In my experience, they’re not like this. Go and read up on it and see if it’s a match for you. They focus on delivering a new kind of banking that’s easier – The bank of the future.
ChromeBook – Mine’s an Acer and Gold (why would I not love it) – For those of you who want a good laptop without the super high price tag, I highly recommend the ChromeBook. I’d wanted to go for the Chromebook for ages but was worried I wouldn’t be able to do everything I wanted. I am 100% hooked and 100% happy with this laptop. Tip: There were a few things that were a little bit different such as how to scroll down, copy and paste but a quick google search solves that one. Super, super easy.

TubeBuddy – I am a little obsessed with TubeBuddy…. NO.. Scrap that. I’m ridiculously obsessed with TubeBuddy. It’s AMAZING!! If you have a YouTube channel, seriously, just go and get TubeBuddy. There’s a free version. At the time of writing this, I paid for the pro version because I loved the free version so much. TIP: when you’re on the pricing page, you’ll see a coupons and discount area with tickboxes below, if any apply to you, tick them and this brings the price down massively. I’m going to be upgrading again to the next level in the new year as there are a couple of extras I’d like but don’t actually need. These guys have got an amazing YouTube channel to help you get the most out of Tubebuddy. I won’t upgrade until I feel I’m getting 100% out of all the features I already get. Seriously, I could write about this for hours but just go check it out for yourself and give it a try. I LOVE IT.
So those are my 3 favourite finds for 2017. Now I’d like to introduce you to a couple of my business friends who are going to share their top favourite find for 2017 with you.
Introducing Emma Burford from Business Rocks – If you want to learn how to be a business rockstar, check this out
Emma’s Favourite find is ConvertKit
For 4 years I happily used Aweber until I decided I needed an Email Service Provider (ESP) to fill the gap between my new membership site, my digital magazine app and my readers. That’s when I found Convertkit I absolutely love it and you can read my full blog post on why I changed over to ConvertKit It’s made a really big difference to my business.
And finally, I’d like to introduce you to Ces Rosanna Price from Inspired to Inspire – Her tagline is Let’s create your #HighVibeDesign. You can see why she’s my kind of businesswoman, can’t you?
Ces’s favourite find is The Website Mentor (with a bonus discount if you hurry)
As a graphic designer, I help my clients create amazing designs for their business. Often they need a website too but don’t have the money to invest in having one created for them yet. My TOP FIND for 2017 is a package I recommend by Vicky Etherington, The Website Mentor, WordPress without any stress!
She will do all the tech installations for you, give you a gorgeous template for a holding page for your website and show you exactly how to add your own images and text. It’s usually £197 which is already a great deal for getting you set up but at the moment you can save £100!
