1. How I Set Up My Calendar Scheduler: Cal 🗓️

The working world is moving from on-site → hybrid → remote.

If you run your own small business, are you still scheduling calls manually?

My advice: try a calendar scheduler.

I use Cal.com

Best part?

It’s free.

I’ve tried a few before. (Calendly, Google Calendar, and even AI schedulers)

Until I do a search for good AI schedulers.

I conclude this is the best.


Here are some problems I’ve faced with other popular calendar schedulers:

  • No calendar deconfliction features

  • No plan that fits well for solopreneurs

  • No free multiple meetings

  • No opportunities to scale with a team

  • No enterprise plans

What do I love about Cal?

It’s that it’s super good-looking.

Yes, I’m a sucker for good design, hehe. 😛

More than that, it’s also great for:

  • Having multiple booking pages (which Google Cal had but required payment)

  • Being able to sync to my personal Google calendar (Calendly can’t do that well, so I couldn’t deconflict it with my personal schedule)

  • Viewing and editing my personal Google Calendar, which syncs up to my Apple Calendar (So I can view it on my iPhone)

  • Customize booking settings like: time intervals between bookings, days booked in advance, max bookings a day, etc.

I personally love the highly customizable booking settings.

They allow me to have personal space, not allow a client to book me within the same day, and catch me off guard!

PERSONAL NOTE: I’ve ever tried to book someone on Calendly, preparing all the materials needed, only to be ghosted by them at the time of the meeting.

If you don’t want to ghost people or be ghosted, just use Cal.

Here’s what the booking page of one of my meeting pages looks like:

Looks simple and clean, right?

You’re also able to switch to a weekly view:

And a column view:

Clients will also be able to overlay their calendars by connecting them to Cal.

It’s a toggle at the top right corner.

Here, have a look at my public meeting booking page:

Here’s a comparison table:




Google Calendar


Individuals (Free), Teams ($15/User/Month), Ultimate ($99/User/Month), Platform ($189/Month)

Basic (Free), Essentials ($10/User/Month), Professional ($15/User/Month), Teams ($20/User/Month), Enterprise (Custom)



Extensive: From UI components to API endpoints for platform building

Moderate: Custom notifications, reminders, branding

Limited: Mainly through Google's ecosystem integration


Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, Zoom, Google Meet, and more

Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Slack, Gmail, Outlook, Hubspot, Paypal, and many more

Seamless integration within Google's ecosystem

Key Features

Unlimited bookings and calendars, open-source platform, customizable

Automated scheduling, calendar management, payment processing, group scheduling

Calendar management, event scheduling, integration with Google services

For a solopreneur like myself, Cal is the best option as it’s great for individual users.

However, if you have a team and want to make integrations with other software, you can consider Cal and Calendly - they both have them.

Google Calendar only syncs with Google - best for casual call scheduling.

Try Cal.com!

2. My Life’s Entire Tech Stack 👨🏻‍💻

My Life Tech Stack via Whimsical Diagrams

I’ve been a solopreneur for three years.

I’ve run websites, this newsletter, and a social media presence.

In my personal life, I’ve used AI to help me perform rapid information retrieval and capture.

And powering all that is my tech stack.

👨🏻‍💻 What’s a tech stack?

It’s a list of software items that I use to drive the work that I do on a daily.

Here are the 25 tools in my tech stack:

Notion: The All-In-One Workspace

Notion is the ultimate organizational tool for my business, seamlessly blending notes, tasks, and databases.

Cal.com: My Calendar Scheduler

Gone are the days of back-and-forth emails to set up meetings.

Integrating seamlessly with my personal calendar, it’s great for catchups, too!

Its ease of use and efficiency are why it's a staple in my tech arsenal.

ChatGPT: The AI Genius

Whenever I need to generate content, brainstorm ideas, or simply get unstuck, ChatGPT is my go-to.

I like the custom GPTs, which let me customize my use cases for my work!

Canva: Design Made Easy

Fun fact: I use Canva to create carousels and beautiful graphics with ease for LinkedIn.

Canva democratizes design, empowering me to bring my ideas to life without needing to be a design expert.

TubeOnAI: Video Content, Revolutionized

In video content creation, TubeOnAI stands out by offering AI-driven summaries of YouTube videos.

In fact, It's my secret weapon for aggregating YT content for this newsletter!

Arc Browser: A Smarter Way to Surf

Browsing the web with Arc Browser is a game-changer, thanks to its focus on privacy, efficiency, and customization.

And I love its design 😄 

Beehiiv: For Newsletter Growth

Beehiiv is really built for newsletter growth.

Without its recommendation network and how easy it is to monetize with sponsors, The Juicer wouldn’t even exist today!

AuthoredUp: LinkedIn Content Scheduling

When it comes to scheduling and formatting high-quality LinkedIn content at scale, Authoredup is my ace.

I love how I can format and schedule my posts way beforehand in a good UI.

Grammarly: Keeping My Writing Sharp

No matter how much I write, Grammarly is always by my side, ensuring clarity, coherence, and correctness.

Love that it catches my typos too!

1Password: Security Made Simple

It securely stores all my credentials, allowing me to access them with just one master password.

I love that it’s secure and easy to unlock on my MacBook with TouchID or my Apple Watch.

Apple Reminders: Never Forget a Thing

Apple Reminders is straightforward yet POWERFUL for keeping track of tasks and deadlines.

I love it for its rapid idea-capture capabilities through Siri.

Just say, “Remind me to [YOUR REMINDER]

Now you’ll remember to work on it.

Figjam: Streamlining Design Workflow

Figjam is my go-to for planning the flow of email subscriber acquisition.

I use it to map out user flows and integrations between software in the tech stack.

Kadence Theme for WordPress: Building Beautiful Websites

Kadence Theme offers unparalleled flexibility and speed for my WordPress site.

Love that it’s fast and looks pretty.

Arc Search App: Revolutionizing Information Retrieval

The “Browse for Me” feature is fantastic. Arc Search browses the web using AI and generates an entire website or guide for you.

This tool has significantly improved my research efficiency.

Train Fitness AI: Personalized Workout Plans

It uses the information from my Apple Watch Ultra during my workouts and detects the type of workout I’m doing.

I spend SO much less time worrying about logging workouts now.

How We Feel: Tuning Into My Well-being

How We Feel is a free yet powerful tool for understanding my emotional states and their impacts on my overall well-being.

Headspace: My Meditation Sanctuary

Headspace has been a cornerstone of my mental wellness routine, providing guided meditations that help reduce stress and improve focus.

Day One: Capturing Life's Moments

Day One is my digital journal, a private space where I capture the moments that matter.

Bible App: Spiritual Guidance Anytime

The Bible App is my daily source of inspiration and spiritual growth.

Love the daily refresh feature!

Surfshark: Privacy Without Compromise

Surfshark is my choice for VPN services when I use public Wi-Fi.

Bitdefender: Next-Level Cybersecurity

I got hacked once. Never again. I use Bitdefender to protect my online business.

3. A Beautiful AI Time Capsule You’ll LOVE ⏳

WARNING: This video is a hauntingly beautiful AI time capsule.

Additional warning: You’ll love it.

It’s a compilation of video footage originally filmed by the Lumière brothers in various locations in the 19th century.

They were the earliest filmmakers around, but they had no access to colored film back then.

The footage has been colorized and upscaled to 4K, 60 fps using AI.

What’s so special that I call it an AI time capsule? 🧐

With the video, you’ll traverse through iconic cities like New York, London, Jerusalem, Moscow, Kyoto, Paris, and more in the late 19th century.

It’s the witnessing of their seemingly happy and bustling daily lives, architecture, and atmosphere of a bygone era that captures my attention!

Oh, if only the Lumière brothers could see what their work in the past would look like today!
