The Tools You Need To Succeed At Every Level Of Your Business

Welcome to the Resources section.  This is a curated list of the tools and courses I strongly recommend for building and optimizing your business.   I’ve tried dozens of tools, systems, and educational courses and find that 90% of the time they are complete garbage. There are, however, a few tools and resources that I am still using to this day to build my business and this page is where you can learn what I use. 
Before diving into these awesome resources I know and trust an important disclosure:
*Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. Please understand that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.
Aweber Autoresponder:  Aweber is affordable and easy to use email marketing and autoresponder tool that allows you to easily build a list of prospects and customers.  Aweber is the easiest to set up and most reliable autoresponder I use.  A 30-day free trial is provided for first-time subscribers.
Thrive WordPress & Theme with Landing Page Builder: For those who want to build their own funnels, I recommend using Thrive Themes and their Thrive Leads plugin.  This is a one-time payment alternative to Click Funnels.  It requires more design and development on your end but is still easy to use if you have WordPress experience.  You will need web hosting.

A2 Hosting:  If you’re going to build your own websites, you will need hosting.  A2 Hosting is fast and ultra reliable.
