The Tools You Need To Succeed and Develop Professionally
“You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.” – Charlie “Tremendous” Jones
I absolutely love that quote and highly recommend investing in yourself through reading. Whether you’re reading a physical book or listening to the audiobook version, you will develop so much by reading even just one book a month.
If you’re looking for inspirational reads, look no further! Here are the books we recommend that you read.

This is, hands down, one of the best books you can read to develop or improve your interpersonal and relationship building skills. A must have for anyone looking to move up in an organization and to eventually lead a team.

I thought it would be helpful to create a page that you can visit for all your online marketing needs for your practice. I’ll try to add the latest resources as soon as they’re available, so be sure to bookmark this page as a reference.
Disclosure: I personally use and love most of the recommended resources. Don’t feel obligated to purchase or sign up for every single resource on this list – that’s not what it’s for. Please know that I have worked with all of these companies personally and recommend them because they’re extremely useful, not because of the small commission I make if you decide to buy something from this list. This resource guide is to grow your business, so please take some time to learn about the best tools I can recommend.
My Most Recommended:
Hostgator – I’ve been using Hostgator for the last 6 years and recommend it to anyone looking to start a blog or website. Their customer service is top notch and they’re available to chat or talk 24/7. They will even help with transferring your old files to your new hosting account at Hostgator. How great is that! Check out the ‘Baby Plan’ or ‘Hatchling Plan’ and save 20%!
GoDaddy – We all have seen the commercials for GoDaddy and know that they are a great domain provider. But did you know they do hosting as well? I recently worked with a few clients who purchased their domain and hosting through GoDaddy. The setup for WordPress was extremely simple and we had their new website up and running really quickly. Currently the plans are $1.00 to $10 a month.
DreamHost – When I first started blogging and making websites, I used DreamHost. I still actually use them for a few of my websites because they’re really simple and easy to use. They offer domain and hosting as well as one-click WordPress installs, which makes setting up a WordPress website extremely easy! For about $10 a month, you can host your site and a free domain.
ThemeForest – Everyone wants a great looking website. Picking the right WordPress theme is simple with ThemeForest. You can sort by customer rating, price, and even by specialty field. They have templates with shopping carts, photo galleries, and even magazine style themes. There are thousands of themes, many of them around the $50 mark.
Elegant Themes – My first theme was from Elegant themes and I’ve been using them for multiple projects. They offer access to ALL their themes for one price. If you don’t want to commit to buying just one theme, check out the options at ElegantThemes. You can pay $69 and have access to all 87 themes.
Lead Pages – Back in the old days, we used to make sales pages by hand – painstakingly placing images and text to guide the eye towards the ‘buy’ button. Lead Pages takes the guessing away and provides proven templates that integrate seamlessly with WordPress. You can build 10 beautiful pages in a fraction of the time! Check out LeadPages if you want to move your visitors to action, turning them to paying customer.
Aweber Email – If you haven’t started building your customer email list, you need to start today! Aweber is one of the best email newsletter services used by both small and large websites. Their customer support is great and the user interface is easy to learn. You can start your first month for just $1 here.
