No matter where I am asked to speak and/or train, I am usually asked one or both of the following questions.
What technology, equipment, and tools do you recommend?
What books do you recommend for personal growth, building a business, etc.?
I've put both lists on my Amazon Storefront for easy access and pricing comparisons. I hope this helps and is beneficial to you in your effort to grow and bring more value to the world.
For Access To These Items, Or To View Them On Amazon,
Domain Names And Hosting
Siteground is what I personally use for website hosting.
They are super fast, secure, and they include a lot of free services/products that others charge for (unlimited email, Caching tools, etc.).
Godaddy is what I use for domain names.
Bluehost is awesome for domains and hosting your website.
Aweber is what I use and recommend. It is a great email program and autoresponder that is used by just about every top network marketer on the planet.
My Lead System Pro (Premium LEVEL). My Lead System Pro is what I use for generating sales funnels, capture pages, CRM (Customer Relations Manager), and attraction marketing campaigns.
Stealth Seminars is probably one of the best platforms to use when scheduling high-end webinars.

ScreenFlow is a screen capture software for Mac, and is probably my favorite and most used tools of all.
With ScreenFlow, you can record any part of your monitor while also capturing your video camera, iOS device, microphone, multi-channel audio device and your computer audio.
You can also edit anything. The easy-to-use editing interface lets you creatively edit your video, and add additional images, text, music, animations and transitions for a professional-looking screencast.
You can also share your final product anywhere. Export an MP4, MOV, M4V or even an animated GIF to the Web or publish directly to your YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, Facebook, Google Drive or Dropbox.
Ecamm Live is a great tool that I use for a Broadcasting Studio. Everything's here, including support for multiple cameras, iPhone and Mac Screensharing, and more. A real camera switcher lets you direct the show in real-time. Stream in HD quality with one click, using any connected mic and capture device, including your Canon DSLR. And when your broadcast is done, you'll find a high-quality recording has already been saved on your Mac.
Ecamm Live's integration with Restream.io and Switchboard Live means live streaming to multiple platforms simultaneously is as simple as one click. And with built-in support for Restream's chat aggregation, Ecamm Live can even display chat comments from over 20 platforms.

Automatic mileage tracking
Taxbot automatically tracks your mileage using the GPS in your smartphone. All you need to do is classify it as business or personal for bulletproof mileage records that will save you big money!
Digitally Track Receipts
Taxbot allows you to take crisp photos of your receipts and then requests the appropriate information for that expense to be tax compliant. Forget the chaos of lost or misplaced receipts. Approach April 15th with confidence knowing you are fully documented and compliant.
Taxbot is your IRS compliance partner. With the click of a mouse you can print off beautifully formatted AuditSafe deduction reports. It's time to replace that “shoebox of receipts”. You can even register for one of their upcoming webinars by clicking here.
