Free Tools and Useful Resources

Here is a list of free tools, online courses, books, and other useful resources I want to share with you. Regarding the books and the course on Blockchain Technology, I have personally not only enjoyed them but mostly used and applied their content for this Blog and as well in my personal life. I hope these will be highly valuable to you too!




  • Xolo, running an online business
    • I have been with Xolo for more than 2 years now and so far, everything has run smoothly. All in all, I am happy with the service (and happy to avoid the administrative headaches) and Xolo helps me to focus on the Blog and Podcast.
    • See the review here.
  • Canva for image design, the free version is already fantastic.
  • Wise, for transferring money across borders at very low fees (You get one free transfer by using the link)
  •, a Visa Debit card that gives you cashback in cryptocurrency (a nice risk-free way to acquire crypto!).


You can also find them on Audible, click on the image below for a free trial!

Listen to them while you drive or when you exercise!

  • Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert T. Kiyosaki
    • A must-read for newbies in the Personal Finance sphere, however with some reserves, I have reviewed the book here.
  • Scarcity – The true cost of not having enough, Sendhil Mullainathan and Eldar Shafir
      • Really enjoyed the concepts presented in this book which will help you understand the behavior and psychology behind scarcity.
      • How do you think when you are hungry? Lonely? Poor?
      • Concepts I found particularly appealing: Mental bandwidth and focus dividend
  • Mindless Eating, Brian Wansink
      • Brilliant and fun read!
      • We are tricked into so many ways every time we eat (size, color, smells, lighting, emotions,..) because we do it mindlessly.
      • The good news is we can apply the mindless way of eating by switching it for the positive and then become healthier, thinner mindlessly as well: Smaller plates, see what we eat, hiding candies in a jar, putting it out of sight,… and still eat whatever we want (just in smaller portions for instance)
  • The Psychology of Money, Morgan Housel
      • This was a fantastic little book packed with great wisdom on managing your money.
      • I not only enjoyed reading but learned a great deal about the psychology of money. The author is talented at breaking down complex issues such as the stock markets, investing, the need for saving money, the phenomenon of comparing yourself to your neighbors, career choices, and much more to digestible and relatable stories and actionable tips for all of us (regardless of income or education)
