My Most Shared Resources

~ Under Construction ~


Here's a curated list of my most valuable resources: the nuggets of gold I've spent years sifting through the internet to find. I share these in the real world all the time and so decided to put them all together on one, easily accessible place.

They cover a range of technical areas: from living a techy life, to startup knowledge, to sales and marketing tools. Everything I use in my day-to-day work-life. I'm not counting anything obvious like Google Analytics, Adwords, Facebook for Business, etc.

Pay it forward, share the love and enjoy!

If you have any questions, or would just like to discuss any of these items, you can reach out to me directly.
