Here is a list of the best business resources and best business tools for you to check out.
Some of the resources and tools I use myself; some I’m familiar with-or know the people who run the companies that sell them.
Some of the resources and tools listed are mine, and are clearly marked.
I have affiliate relationships-in other words I’m paid a small percentage for the sale of these products/services unless otherwise noted.
But, know this; I’m very, very picky. I get several offers every week from companies that want me to try and/or promote their products and services…and want to pay me to do so. I turn down 90% of them.
The business resources and business tools I’ve listed below have been vetted by me and are Franchise King Approved.
