In my life I’ve learned that living a life built on fostering daily purpose and meaning is a team effort. My team consists of a wide cast of people, but also a variety of tools that allows me to make my time, focus and money work harder for me.

On this page you can find all those tools.

I want to be transparent that some of the things I’ve listed below contain an affiliate link. If you use them, I may get a small commission – but there will be no additional cost to you. I only include resources that I personally use and in good conscious firmly believe you may find value in them as well.
