tools of the trade - resources

I want to share with you some of the tools I use in creating content, editing photos, hosting my courses, and so much more! The ones that are bold I use daily. Just to be transparent, when you click on these links I may receive a small commission at no cost to you. I appreciate the clicks as I can buy maybe a cup of coffee or two to keep fueled up and create more relevant content! 🙂
