Resources

I thought it would be useful to create a list of resources for all location independent entrepreneurs like me, so you can have a page you can refer to when you are looking for something. That’s why I listed all the websites, tools, and other resources that I am using day after day to run my businesses. Enjoy!

Website Management/Hosting/Payment Processor

The cloud service that I use for all my WordPress sites, as well as my SaaS & web applications. It is cheap, fast and really easy to use. It’s also really easy to scale your applications when they grow, so you can use it for your early prototypes & for larger applications.

This is a service that I use to get paid from companies that only accept to send money to US accounts, like the US Amazon Affiliates program. It actually now also accepts other currencies like Yens and Pounds, allowing you to receive payments from different countries without any conversion fees.

Dividend Growth Investing

A very useful website where you can build your virtual portfolio and then receive alerts that are relevant to these stocks. You can also read expert opinions about the stocks that are in your portfolio, and about dividend investing in general.

A tool that we developed to help you select the best dividend growth stocks. It lists the best dividend paying stocks on the market, and the data is updated hourly.

Real Estate Crowdfunding Platforms

A UK-based website that I really like to invest in crowdfunded property. The really neat thing about this website is that the minimum amount to buy shares in a property is very low, usually under $1. They also have a lot of properties listed, which makes it the ideal website to diversify your portfolio.

One of my favorite website so far to invest in crowdfunded real estate. They are investing mainly around Manchester in high-yield properties. The website is really easy to use, they are very nice and professional, and so far I had a very good experience with my investments on this website.

Peer-to-Peer Lending Platforms

This is a great platform that I really recommend. They are based in Latvia, but are currently in the process of moving to the UK. The nice thing on their platform is that they offer a buyback guarantee on some loans, meaning that if you invest on those loans your money is completely safe.

This is the first peer-to-peer lending platform I invested on. They are based in Estonia, and for me it’s the best platform available in Europe at the moment. They also have an excellent portfolio manager function to automate your investments.

Online Tools

This is the collection of applications that my team & I created to run my online business. It includes applications like an email marketing software, a social media automation tool, and much more. All the applications are completely free to use and open-source, so you can use them for your own business as well!

Having a Google account not only allow you to store your files and use Gmail, but you can actually create & edit files as well like text files or spreadsheets. I am now using it to organise all the processes in my businesses. Compared to more traditional tools like Office, it is all online, which means you don’t have to worry about different software versions or loosing your files that are saved locally. It’s also super easy to share documents with your coworkers. And it’s also completely free!

Whereas I am using Google Docs to run my businesses, I am using Evernote as my personal digital file cabinet, where I store ideas, resources, notes on books I read, etc. It’s completely free, synchronise among all your devices automatically, and comes with some nice features like character recognition in pictures!
