Working hard, or hardly working? Starting a business with no money? Or, are you a small business owner who always appreciates new resources? Here’s a list of favorites, tried and tested by yours truly.
Moo – Business Cards
Minted – Business Cards
PicMonkey – Create blog collages quickly and easily
BlueHost – Website Hosting Rackspace – Cloud Website Hosting (Our most preferred)
Evernote – Save or create notes, photos or files and sync across all of your devices.
Google Docs – Create and share work online and access it anywhere.
Dropbox – Cloud storage for all your photos, videos, docs, and other files.
OneDrive – 1 Terabyte of cloud storage for photos, videos, Word docs and other files.
Fujifilm X30 – I just bought this camera, and I’m already in love with it. This will most likely by my go-to for outdoor shots.
Eyefi 16GB Pro X2 – This will change your life. A wireless SD card allows your photos to upload automatically on your laptop. I use this every single day.
Fancier Studio Hair Boom Light – My studio is dark in the afternoon; I use this light, pointed towards the ceiling, to provide a bit of a boost.
iPad – No introduction needed. I use my iPad for answering emails and while on vacation. Oh, and for listening to podcasts while working
MacBook Pro – Heavy duty and a workhorse, this is what’s in my office and on my desk at all times.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – Not so much a cell phone as a mini-office. I check and send messages and take impressive on-the-fly-photos.
Cellulon Epic Virtual Full Size Keyboard – a mobile projection keyboard. There’s a bit of a learning curve on this one, but once you get it, you’ve got it. I pack the virtual keyboard and my iPad when I go on vacation and don’t want to take my laptop.
eBay – To check prices and demand for products.
Etsy – To verify if a product is vintage, and if it’s scarce.
Afterlight – Apply filters to photographs or collages.
