My favorite digital tools, services & apps
ONLINE COURSE HOSTING
I’ve been using Podia since 2020 to host my online course – it’s super user-friendly and easy to set up! Podia is where my Zero to Launch program for aspiring social impact entrepreneurs who want to launch their dream business in 90 days without letting overthinking hold them back is hosted.
If you’re only relying on social media and platforms other people own, you need an email list. MailerLite has everything you could want – landing pages, forms, automations – and is still very affordable.
If you need to get paid in a foreign currency or pay someone who doesn’t have PayPal or Venmo – voila! The transfer fees are sooo much cheaper than PayPal, wire transfer, or anything else!
I love using Google Flights to find the best flights and do quick travel planning.
Duh, Google Maps is a a game changer for getting around anywhere you don’t know. Pro tip: Download the offline map before you go.
GETTING AROUND ABROAD
Doing some planning and not sure if you can physically get from A to B? Rome2Rio is a lifesaver for trip planning.
On the Road
I use Strava sneakily – to see where other people are running. In a foreign place, you don’t always know the best routes – where is beautiful, where is safe. On Strava, you can see where the most activity is and try out the popular routes.
One of my favorite things to do all over the world is hike. All Trails is a really helpful way to find trails heads near you – wherever you are – and get intel on the trail!
AUDIO FITNESS WORKOUTS
Aaptiv is SO great for working out on the road. I can choose a workout by type, length, what body parts I want to work, what equipment I have available, and choose my music. Then one of their trainers tells me exactly what to do! This is perfect for my digital nomad life – sometimes I have a gym, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I want a little motivation on an outdoor run, or someone to guide me through a yoga session.
LEARNING A LANGUAGE
It’s so important wherever you’re going to make a genuine effort to learn at least some of the local language. DuoLingo is fun, easy, and free!
If you’ve ever been in a situation where you’re trying to communicate with someone, and neither of you speak the other’s language, but you have wifi, Google Translate is a game changer.
