Favi's Business Resources for Entrepreneurs & Interpreters

My Favorite Picks

Small Business Resources

I’ve compiled some of my all-time favorite resources that every entrepreneur venturing into the business world for the first time, or those trying to start or grow a business needs. These tools are both Inexpensive, and Great Tools that I’ve used in my business and I’m sharing with you, so that you don’t have to  Scour The Internet… I’ve done all the researching and testing for you.   

These are the same tools that I recommend to my friends and the people I coach & train.

Resources include software programs, downloads, and equipment to help you start and grow your business!


Business plan, Start Your Interpreting Career, Start your Podcast or YouTube Channel

Products on a budget for the everyday entrepreneur; desk, chair, headset, more...

tools & resources

Essential Tools & Resources to help you grow your business; business formation, web design, office administrative tools, etc...

The Essentials

This page may contain affiliate links to products that I enjoy using myself.  Should you choose to use these links, this site may earn affiliate commissions at no additional cost to you, but there are also special deals you can get exclusively from me to you! I recommend these resources whether you choose to use my links or not.  None of the fees of these resources have been increased to compensate me.

Google provides you with a variety of free & paid tools to help you with your business – such as:

  • Free email (no need to pay for an email)
  • Drive (to create, store and share your files)
  • Calendar (to schedule all your appointments)
  • Forms & templates (surveys, templates, invoices, etc)


Email Provider, Funnels, LP

MailChimp is an “all-in-one” marketing platform it comes with easy-to-use landing pages, CRM tools to help you grow your business start+grow…but, more importantly, comes with a FREE PLAN!

I’ve been using Mailchimp for years and so far it’s been the best platform for me.  But as your business grows so does your cost in doing business and therefore the next big thing is Convert Kit or ClickFunnels

Website Templates

If you have WordPress, this is (my), Faviola the CEO Hustler’s FAVOURITE!!!

I love the plugin and all the pre-built templates that help you build your website and create beautiful landing pages.

If you like me someone who loves change and wants to be unique (without breaking the bank and with some time on your hands) then this might be for you!

This is literally a drag and drop page builder it’s been a game-changer for me and I know that It will be a game-changer for those on a limited to no budget and even those who can’t afford a fancy lead gen software.

Now I do recommend upgrading to the $50/year plan to unlock additional and better features for your site.

Content Creation & Design

Canva is definitely my go-to-graphic design tool.  This is an amazing tool that you can use for logo, website, and social media graphics.  They offer hundreds of templates and are so easy to use even for those of use with no graphic design experience.  My whole website and social media accounts were created using Canva (and I’m NOT a graphic designer)! 

We all need a great accounting program to keep all our expenses centralized, but more importantly, have access to:

  • Invoicing
  • Estimates
  • Jobs
  • Payments, etc

What better platform than an online platform to take with you EVERYWHERE!

I’ve been a QB user since the ’90s when their first desktop product was released and I love it!

Domain & Hosting for your Business!

After 21+ years in business and testing various hosting and domain companies I have to say this is one of my favorites.

  • Low cost
  • Fast and prompt service
  • Expert Technical support
  • Security
  • 24/7 assistance

As for domain purchases, you may still want to use GoDaddy.

After struggling with web designers I decided to create my own website using WordPress and I love it! Easy to use, so many plug-ins, so many tools and I’ve been using it since 2007.

Asana is also a nice project management system that allows you to organize and prioritize projects, store and share your “chicken scratches” ideas, lists, etc to keep you and your business organized.

With Trello, you’ll be able to assign your projects and keep track of all open projects, but more importantly, stay on track with your team.

Domain & Hosting for your Business!

Faviola the CEO Hustler

It is a good free platform to jot down ideas, draft blog posts,  daily to-do’s or you can use it as a clipboard to write anything you want; personal or business.

You can also store pictures, screenshots, webpages, and even voice memos, just like using the notes on your phone.

This is similar to Google Keeps, Samsung Notes, iPhone notes, but unlike your phone notes, Evernote & Keeps this is accessible on all devices.

Email Service Provider

Faviola the CEO Hustler

Convertkit is an easy to use- email service provider that was designed specifically for bloggers, podcasters, and businesses looking to build an audience.

  • Great automation builder and editor 
  • simple segmentation emails
  • Auto resend broadcast to un-open emails Lead magnet

But compared to Mailchimp, Mailchimp is still the popular one (for me), but it’s a great alternative to using LeadPages & Mailchimp

Funnel Like a Boss

ClickFunnels is an easy to use; system to Market, Sell and Deliver your products all online!

One of my favorite landing page and funnel creator. This is a simple to use funnel tool for building easy-to-use sales funnels, Opt-ins, webinar pages, and so much more!

Website Design

For any business, you need to have online exposure and if you’re a start-up business using a user-friendly platform is super important, but also using a Free platform when you first start is even better:

  • Free hosting
  • You can connect your Domain
  • Excellent storage
  • Google Analytics

All these features are important for your site.  (I personally used this when I first started my business from 2003-2007)

Easy to Create Website Design

Want to create a website using amazing templates and you can customize it to your needs then I also recommend this platform.  It’s easy to use and cost-effective.

  • Low cost
  • Free hosting
  • You can connect your Domain
  • Excellent storage
  • Google Analytics
  • Track your Sales
  • Email Campaigns
  • Appointment Scheduling

All these features are important for your site.  Similar to Wix, but it’s completely up to you and your preference. (I personally used this when I first started my business from 2000-2003) but then found WIX and I loved it and the cost was less, at the time!…
