Hey, this is James Writtenhouse,
philosopher and entrepreneur,

Before i give you these 7 resources,
it"s important to have a clear understanding of what a resource is.

staff, and other assets that can be drawn on by a person or organization in order to function effectively."
As an entrepreneur, it's important to be functioning at your highest state possible,
and these 8 resources will help you stay ahead of the game and leave your competition in the dust.

I literally run my life off of Simpleology,
and a million other people do as well.
Simpleology takes you step by step and helps you plan your day efficiently and effortlessly.
In addition to starting your day to the right foot,
you can store virtually an unlimited amount of data on Simpleology via list and can create systems that makes sure the things that need to get done get delegated and assigned automatically.
Simpleology offers a team license option,
that way all of your team members can work together and coordinate tasks off of the same platform.
There is a free version for people who just want to test the waters, but I strongly recommend shelling out the extra cash for unlimited data and faster customer service.
In addition, each member automatically becomes an affiliate where you can create a nice side income for yourself for sharing a product that you believe in.
#4: Google Docs
If you don't have $229.99 lying around to purchase Microsoft Office, the next best thing you can get for free is Google Docs.
Google docs is 3 products in one:
a word processor, a spreadsheet application,
and a slideshow presentation.

you can convert your Google Docs files to Word files and vice-versa.
You can also install add-ons to increase its functionality like adding a Thesaurus, url shortener,
a word counter, and more.
