This project was inspired by the many awesome and talented aspiring entrepreneurs trying to make sense of all the pieces needed to assemble their very own budding digital empires.
There are hundreds of technology tools and dozens of ways to plug them together to make your digital business hum. Starting the process of researching technology can feel overwhelming at first! This online guide is my gift to all who are taking that brave step forward and want to take ownership of being informed and figuring out what you need to know to bring your new business ideas to digital life in an empowered way.
If you’re a geek like me, staying up all night to research every tool in this guide is quite possible and comparing options can be addicting – and fun. If that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, I hope you’ll invest time in this research anyway because your ability to “talk the talk” with your collaborators will save you both time and money. Conversations with your web developer, designer, or VA will be infinitely more productive when you have a sense of the world they operate in. You’ll be a better steward of your startup budget and move projects forward more quickly when you know what you need, and what costs are involved.
This “course” is really more of an online guide than a classroom. The material is organized into six modules, grouped by common themes. Each listed tool links directly to the product website where you’ll be able to learn more about how the solution may help you achieve your goals.
I truly hope that by exploring these resources, the task of bringing your new business ideas to digital life will become a bit simpler for you!
