Welcome to the Productivity Matters Toolbox, a curated list of the tools and services I strongly recommend for improving your overall productivity. 


Each of these has been used by me, so I can confidently recommend them to you too.


Before going any further, an important disclosure:

This is probably my most used app.  As a task management tool, I've been a user for quite a while and it is firmly built into my daily workflow.

Sign up right here to see how it will help you take control of your day to day...


Bear is my leading app for taking notes.

The user interface is so simple, without clutter, it makes it quick and easy to make and search for notes.

Productivity Apps


Canva is my number one app for creating artwork; whether for this website, or for social media posts, leaflets - in fact anything that requires visual media.

It's so simple and easy to create multiple variations of the same image; in fact, it does it for you!


You can sign up for a no obligation free 30-day trial of Canva Pro to see how it works for you.  


I love this one, and I really think you will too.

Online security has never been so important, and I use LastPass to help keep me safe, my passwords secure and personal information out of harms way!

You can view a couple of videos about LastPass here

When you sign-up you automatically get a 30 day FREE trial of the premium service.

My Website


I built this website using Wix.  I found it extremely easy to get started, add elements and make the site how I wanted it to look.

It's completely free to start out; but the possibilities are endless.



ConvertKit makes managing email lists and setting up autoresponders so easy and user-friendly.

This is how I generate the emails that are sent out.  I highly recommend this if you're looking to manage any email marketing you do.



This is where I get my domain names.  A great service, with email forwarding, 24/7 support and advanced DNS control at a great price.

Podcasting Equipment

When I record my podcast, I use this equipment to help produce the sound I want.

Hopefully you'll agree, as you listen to my podcast.
