Resources

Part of starting your own business, especially in our digital world, is to have plenty of training, tools, and resources up your sleeve.  I get asked often what tools I use to help my business or have researched.  I’ve compiled a list of tools that I think are FANTASTIC!  The majority of them I use or have used.  There are a few I haven’t used, but others I know and trust use them or they are very highly rated by users.  Not every business, myself included, will need every tool under the sun.  But these are a great start!

The majority of them I use or have used.  There are a few I haven’t used, but they fall into one of two categories:  1)  Others I know and trust swear by them or 2) They are very highly rated and well reviewed.  Not every business, myself included, will need every tool under the sun.  But these are a great start!
