Tools & Resources

Below is a list of tools I recommend.

I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to tools–especially those that help you run your business.  I get lots of requests to promote products and services, and I turn down nearly all of them; those that follow are all ones that I’ve used or evaluated, and wholeheartedly recommend.  These tools will save you time and money, and make it easier to run your business.

I’ll add more to this page as I find new and/or better tools, so I recommend that you bookmark this page for your reference.

Some of these links may make me a few dollars if you sign up.  In all cases, you will not be charged extra for using my link, and you help support StartMyConsultingBusiness.com. Thanks!

PhotoShop: I’ve linked to Adobe Photoshop Elements, since it’s a LOT cheaper than the full version of Photoshop, and it gives you all the functionality that you’ll need–unless you’re a designer.
