Some tools for you to look at

The Business Tools

Our businesses have multiple elements (or departments), and each needs specific tools to get things done, e.g. finance, marketing, and project management. Some are specific to an element; others cross multi-elements of the business. Finding the perfect tool for what you need can be difficult, and here are just a few to give you an idea of where to get started.

The resources listed below are based on tools that I currently or have used to support my business. Some of them may have affiliate links attached, meaning I might get a small commission if you choose to sign up or enlist services from the provider.
