Resources Tools For Success

There are more resources and information available now than ever before. However, so many options can cause confusion.

This is a list of helpful resources that I know will help you and your business grow. I am confident they will help you move forward just as they helped me get to where I am today.

Disclosure: Some of these links are affiliate links, which means that if you click the link then make a purchase I will be compensated in some way. You will not pay anything extra and the compensation comes at no additional cost to you. I do not recommend these products for the compensation, I recommend them because I have used and have benefited from them.

Please do not spend your hard earned money on these products unless you feel you need them to help achieve your goals. If you do choose to make a purchase and support me in some way then I thank you.

Hard Goods

  • Under Armour Sports Mask
    An unboxing video review showing what you'll get and a first impressions video with some light jogging. I'm not the most athletic guy but when it's time to wear a face mask it's going to be a good one. Since I generally like Under Armour products this seems like a good idea to me.

  • ORORO Heated Hoodie [Affiliate Link]
    A video review showing the hoodie in action. Do you ever have those days when you want to get outside but it's a little too cold? The heated hoodie by ORORO is a great solution.


  • Web Hosting Canada [Affiliate Link]
    Since I'm Canadian, hosting in Canada seems like a no brainer. A good, reliable service that has never let me down.

  • Mail Chimp
    This is email marketing made easy. It's a simple way to communicate with your customers and track the effectiveness.

  • iubenda [Affiliate Link]
    Privacy policies can be very time consuming and difficult to get right. They do all the legwork, staying current on privacy legislation like PIPEDA, GDPR, and everything else coming down the pipe.

  • Google Analytics
    When you start getting traffic you will need to know what it's doing, where it came from, and all kinds of other things. This will tell you.


  • Dropbox
    Keep your important files in sync across your devices. You can also store files you commonly share with your customers to save time searching for them all the time.

  • Evernote
    Keep your daily thoughts and ideas in sync across multiple devices. It helps you stay organized and get you away from those scraps of paper.


  • Pexels
    We all need great looking photos to spice up our projects. These are free, high quality, stock photos for personal and commercial use. Check out their policies to make sure your use case is legit.

  • Gimp
    A free open source graphics editor that will work magic until you can afford Photoshop. Maybe even after that. Mac and Windows versions are available.

  • iMovie
    A free video editor that will work magic on your videos until you can afford Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro. Mac and iOS versions only I'm afraid.
