After you get a domain name, you can get a professional email address (mine is firstname.lastname@example.org – feel free to email me anytime!).
I tried a few different providers and then went with Google Workspace (formerly G-Suite) and could not be happier. Here are some of the features I love that are included in the $7.80 CAD/month basic plan:
- Professional email addresses
- Google Calendar with the ability to integrate Zoom so that I can schedule Zoom meetings right from my calendar
- 30 GBs of storage
- Access to all of Google’s platforms like Google Docs, Sheets, etc
- 24/7 chat support
Note: one of the only things I don’t like about Google Workspace is emailing through Gmail on my Mac. It’s great on my phone but on a computer, I tried out every desktop email client for Macs out there and finally landed on Airmail, which I absolutely love.
