My recommendations for books to read, people and sites to follow and products, apps or services to use are below. I have a separate page dedicated to resources for organizational health and culture.

Please note that some of the links are affiliate links, which helps me keep the lights on. As explained in the Terms of Use, I only use affiliate links for products I would recommend regardless of whether they offered affiliate links.

People and sites to follow:

Any blogs or other sites I follow tweet about their new content, so I stay up to date by reviewing tweets rather than by checking sites or using an RSS reader. See Replacing your RSS Reader with Hootsuite for a how-to guide on setting up this process for reviewing a lot of prioritized content in a short period of time.

To see the individuals and sites I follow, browse my Priority 1, Priority 2 and Priority 3 lists on twitter.  A couple good blogs to get you started: sethgodin.com and michaelhyatt.com.

My favorite web services and apps these days:

  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Websites
  • Tasks, Docs and Files
    • Box and Dropbox for storing and sharing files
    • Evernote for saving and sharing notes and ideas
    • Canva for making your print and online designs
    • HelloSign and HelloFax for collecting electronic signatures and sending/receiving the rare fax
