Sold! Show me how No, thank you

Oh no, you did it!

I knew it! We humans are hard-wired for curiosity. We naturally want to learn and explore. That's why this website exists, after all. And whenever there is a little mystery, our brains seek to solve it. And I guess that's why you're here.

I love to share, not only what I've learned but also the cool and helpful tools I'm using. Just be careful when you click...

A better bank

When the big four banks went through their scandals I decided to go with another bank and haven't looked back since.

This one has a pleasant and pain-free onboarding process and their web interface is very clean. But the best bit is that they reimburse your overseas conversion fees and offer a competitive savings rate.

Want to join a cool bank?


Then you should sign up to ING Bank.

Technology & office

When I upgraded my phone I had no idea that I had used the same supplier that supplied my previous one!

I love that they're of reasonable size (as someone said, "they can't run away easily"), have competitive prices and that their customer service responded quickly to my pre-sale questions.

Who's that good?


That supplier is Kogan. And if you click this Kogan link you'll get $5 credit for free.

Handling email subscribers

For several years I was "driving a Holden" with the software that handled my subscribers: designing the emails, putting together sequences, keeping track of unsubscribes or email updates etc.

But since switching to this gem I just love to login each time I need to do subscriber work.

It is well designed and supports my workflows well. Yes, it's not cheap – but you get what you pay for (you know what I mean if you've ever driven a Mercedes). And their customer support team rocks.

How about taking this Merc for a free spin?


The guys at ConvertKit allow you to test the waters with their free plan, including your first 1,000 subscribers.

My content management system

Many years ago, when I selected my first CMS, I picked one that wasn't wildly known but had very few security issues. (Mind you, the list for WordPress doesn't end – still today!)

I did the same for my second and current CMS. Security is that important. But not only is it very secure, it is also well designed, a pleasure to work with and write template and styling code for. And their developer never seems to sleep.

Wow! What was the name again?


Look no further than Craft CMS.

Handling online resources

When you are offering online resources, such as PDFs, it can be challenging to handle the downloads and payments. That's why I have outsources these tasks to a company that is not only good at what they do, but also a quick responder to feedback and updating their platform regularly.

So who's that hipster?


That company is Payhip. They also offer integration with Zoom & other coaching-related features.
