Resources

Below are some of the core resources I use to run my business.

Web Hosting

This site is powered by WordPress using a custom theme I designed. The site is hosted on DigitalOcean.

I'm also using ServerPilot to manage and install a lot of the tech stuff.

 

Themes & Page Builders

This site is currently using Astra Theme because it's fast and flexible.

The page builder I recommend is Beaver Builder because it's a game changer in page creation.
