Recommended Business Tools
I thought it would be helpful to you to create an evolving page of resources to help you with all of your launch needs. Plus, this evolving list of tools and services I use to run my business + have used to help clients run their businesses.
Important: Please note that some of the links are affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase. Please know that they are all tools that I use or have used and wholeheartedly recommend to you because of their quality or who created them. I don't think you necessarily need any of these or all of them -- so only invest in them if you truly think they will benefit your business or next launch. More does not equal a better business or launch.
