It takes a lot of pieces to get a project like this off the ground and running. (Not that you’ll need everything on this page.)
And there is one option here–if you have the budget–that has its own version of damn near all the tools on this page inside its back office.
Nice and tight but you’ll have to pay to get that convenience.
Me? I tried it but went the potpourri way in the end.
Meaning: I actively use about 2/3 of what’s listed below.
The rest were no longer required, due to any number of things.
But I kept them here because they are good stuff made by honorable people, and you may need options.
And some of them are simply free.
I figured that you might find free to be an awfully handy price point as you build. I certainly have. Many times.
This is just a fast and easy directory.
I have articles within the Ken’s Story: A Road Trip page that go deep on most of the items below.
And you’ll gradually see me create more products that will teach how I’ve integrated any of this within my life and systems.
FYI: I’m an affiliate for most everything on this page that has an affiliate program.
THIS MEANS I GET PAID IF YOU BUY SOMETHING AFTER CLICKING AN AFFILIATE LINK ON MY SITE.
And if you’re trying to build something like what I’ve built with OJ, you might want to do the same.
Make your words work for you on two levels if you need them to. That’s called “leverage” and it doesn’t cost your visitors any extra. Win-win.
Each link opens in a new window, keeping this list readily available for maximum convenience.
