Business Resources

Here are some of my favorite business resources:

Shopify online shopping cartShopify – I have used Shopify since 2011 for the www.easydaysies.com online store. I used two other providers before that, and let me tell you, Shopify is the absolute best out there!  And just like Easy Daysies, they are a Canadian company!


logo-legal-zoomLegal Zoom – Legal Zoom is an excellent online company that performs every-day legal tasks for your business, including incorporation, trademarks, copyrights, patents, etc.  I used them to get a low-cost provisional patent for Easy Daysies while deciding whether to go the patent route.


logo-weeblyWeebly – Building your first website?  With Weebly, you can build it yourself! That’s how we built www.easydaysies.com.  It uses a very simple drag-and-drop interface that will have you building multiple websites in no time.


logo-leadpagesLeadPages – Do you want an easy way to create all those cool website forms that help you sign people up for emails, webinars, video series, etc?  This is how we do it at Elaine’s Kitchen Table – it’s so simple and effective it’s ridiculous!


logo-squareSquare – If you have an iPhone or iPad, you have a cash register!  I use Square at trade shows and launch events and it simply works great!  Sign up for free through the link on this page and receive free processing on up to $1,000 in credit card transactions to get you going!


DISCLOSURE: I may be an affiliate for products that I recommend. If you purchase those items through my links I may earn a commission or extended subscription. You will not pay more when buying a product through these links. In fact, I may sometimes negotiate a lower rate (or bonuses) not available elsewhere. Plus, when you order through my link, it helps me to continue to offer you lots of free content.
Thank you in advance for your support!
