I get a lot of questions about the types of equipment and online tools I use, so I thought HEY! How about a resources page? Help me help you help me? Yeah that.

Please note: Many of these links are affiliate referrals as I am recommending them personally to you and want the companies to know that I think they’re cool by sending my online friends to them. Sounds good? Cool. Thanks!
