Quite frequently, someone asks me, “Brian, what do you recommend I use for ________?”
Behold, (most of) those things that I recommend appear below, in one place for your review.
There is something here for everyone including productivity tools, web hosts, social media tools, online backup options, accounting programs, etc., that I have personally used to build my own business and keep my personal life on the straight and narrow.
Also, a few of these below are affiliate links. That means that if you decide to purchase a product or service by going through my link, my kids might get an ice cream this week.
Evernote – I scan and save important documents and interesting things I find browsing the web so that I can refer to them later.
Todoist – This is a “checklist on steroids.” I have used it on and off over the past few years, but lately, I have been “all in.”
Bitly – I share links on social media, in emails and when writing reports dozens of times daily. Bitly helps me shorten those long, ugly links. I also have a cool branded link for my business if that is interesting for you.
