Weekly Finds for the Solopreneur

Welcome to One Woman Shop Weekly Finds – where we members of the community scour the web to bring you a curated list of posts, links, and resources that we they think will help your business—and maybe even your life! This week’s curator: Julienne DesJardins, virtual assistant for solopreneurs who are ready for major growth in their business.

Have you ever wondered what your readers think of your site when they visit? Then you need to try Peek! Enter your website and you’ll be emailed a 5-minute video where you can listen to one of the Peek testers check out your site. (My tester even opted-in to my list during the video!)

When I found Coolors recently, I was over the moon. This awesome tool will help you choose a color scheme by generating new options for you with a simple click of your space bar. You can even lock in a particular color, or add one by Hex Code, and Coolors will build around that!

If you’re like me, you’re always on the lookout for really great stock photos that are copyright-free and safe to use on your site and posts. Well, you’re going to love these (and these!) super feminine, styled images from Ashley Ella Design that are free to download!

When you launch your own business, you learn a ton of new skills, right? In my experience, some of those new skills came more easily than others. Learning how to talk about myself has not been a walk in the park, and Melissa Cassera’s free Write a Better Bio challenge has been a great help!

I love working with ambient noise on in the background. I’ve found that it really helps my focus. Defonic is a great tool for this because you can customize your sound for a particular work session! You’re able to turn on and combine the different tracks, like lightning, coffee shop or moving train.

If your opt-in hasn’t been converting, or you’re stuck on what to offer at all, Helene Scott’s free BOP your OPT-IN training is a great resource for you. These worksheets helped me break through and start offering an opt-in that was of real value to my audience.

OmmWriter is an amazing writing tool that I use it all the time. (I used it while writing this post for you!) You can customize the look and sounds for a distraction-free, writing experience. Best part: it’s pay-what-you-can (although, the minimum price of $5.11).
