If you read Part 1 of this article, you learned about the different categories of tech you’ll need to support your speaking business. Now, let’s look at the specific programs I use.

Farmers are hardworking people. 

Sun, sweat, dirt… from sun up to sun down.

Back in 1940, a single farmer was able to feed around 19 people with his work.  But today, that number has shot up to more than 160.

The difference?  Technology!!

Today, sophisticated machines, biotechnology, and even artificial intelligence are helping farmers produce more – and become better stewards of our land.

They are quite literally growing their businesses using the power of the right technology.

Now, it’s YOUR turn.  

Here are some of the top tools you can add to your tech stack so your speaking business flourishes with new growth.

Growing Your Tech Stack

First, I’d like to invite you to share the tech you can’t live without.  The one constant in today’s world is change.  So, always be on the lookout for even better tools to sub into your tech stack to make your work more efficient and effective.

For instance, I know that our friend Clay Hebert has built a huge amount of content using ClickUp as his project management tool.  Then, Neen James uses Hubspot as her CRM to great effect.

Every speaker finds what works best for them.  So today’s list isn’t a prescription.  It’s just a list of tools I like – ideas for you to check out.

Here are the main categories we’re going to cover:

  1. Accounting software
  2. Professional document software for speaker agreements
  3. Tools to pay others
  4. Outreach technology (email, CRMs, and website management)
  5. Team communication technology
  6. Travel tools
  7. Storage tech
  8. Calendar management
  9. Tracking your speaking gigs

Okay, here goes… this is the actual tech stack I use to run my speaking business. 

Accounting Software

For years, we used QuickBooks to keep things humming.  But ultimately, I became frustrated with its parent company Intuit.  Their tax and marketing tools were a nightmare to navigate and their accounting software was too complicated for someone like me to figure out.
