List of Software Resources

I've spent literally hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to come up with this list of resources below. I'm kind of a software junkie—I'll buy anything and try it out to see if it can make me more money. Below is the list of tools that I use every week. Learn this stuff and it will make you fast, efficient, and productive! I would have given my right arm just to have this list of resources 10 years ago.

NOTE - I am a Mac user and some of this software is Mac only. Sorry Windows users... :-(
(And yes, I am an affiliate for some of these products, but only because I actually use them)

Webhosting Provider - Hostinger (I used Bluehost for years but they just got worse and worse every year and now they are just not useable. The problems are endless: email deliverability, horrible customer support, horrible UI on cPanel, and just slow hosting, etc.). I have switched over to Hostinger and I wish I would have done it years ago!
Files Sharing - DropBox (if you don't have this already you need to get it right away—it's FREE)
