What Renee’s Obsessed With This Week

Three Fave Things for May!

The Contract Club by Braden Drake is my go-to for all things Contracts, and it’s only $30!

The Contract Club currently has 70 complete templates plus industry-specific terms for dozens more. You’ll likely find what you need, but they’re adding more every month based on requests, and all Club owners immediately get access to new templates. Just last week, they added five new contracts for event sponsorship, personal training, human resource training curriculum, vendor application & vendor agreement for venues, and a web design contract. Click here to dive in.

Have you heard about ENJI? Well, she’s turning ONE this month, so it’s time I stopped gatekeeping it!

You know we love supporting other small businesses (bonus when they have a female founder), so we’re excited to celebrate alongside our friends at Enji and are even more excited for what’s to come!

Because in one short year, Enji’s marketing tools have helped hundreds of small business owners finally get their marketing together—including me! My favorite feature is the AI Copywriter, and I am obsessed with how it helps me craft messaging that actually sounds like ME. Y’all, it’s SO good!

Help me celebrate my friends at Enji by checking it out and joining today. Their super anniversary deal is just $19 a month for the first 12 months, a 35% savings (I did the math for you). Click here to jump in.
