Are you looking for a book that may help you on your entrepreneur journey? Need a podcast that points you in the right direction? Trying to figure out a software that will meet you need?
You’re in luck! If you are following us on Instagram, you may have seen our Tech Tips, Book Recommendations, and Podcast Recommendations but you can’t click the link (those pesky Instagram restrictions!)
Well, we decided to compile the list here for you. This way you can also have a one stop reference for the future. If you have a recommendation you would like to add, please let us know.
***All recommendations came from fellow entrepreneurs. None of these are sponsored (meaning we were not paid for placement; however, some may have affiliate links if we have used the product ourselves and approve of it). Some of the Tech Finds have not been used/tested by us (we have labeled the ones we have not used). For additional software recommendations that we have tested, please visit our resource page.
