a few of my favorite things for business + inspiration | the merriweather council blog

Overwhelm is real and it’s dangerous. When I feel overwhelmed, I basically shut down and do nothing. That’s why I generally don’t follow a ton of anything. I need space to come up with my own thoughts, you know? I love Pinterest as much as you do, but there are certain things I find great value in time and time again! I wanted to share them with you – just my MOST favorite… so as not to overwhelm you!

Tools + Services

Shopify+ – a serious love affair right here.

Get Response+ – my guacamole upgrade. Just started using it and LOVE it. Try it with my link and get a $30 credit.

Pic Monkey – for one off type projects and social media covers

Pixelmator – for graphics and image editing. I use this app nearly every day!

Mail Chimp – probably the best place to start your mailing list

Trello – for orgnaizing all the thing

This is a for profit blog and includes a few affiliate links. This means that if you purchase something through one of these links, I may receive a small commission. I only bother suggesting products or services that I have used and loved because if you buy something on my suggestion and hate it that would suck. So I only suggest things i’m 99% sure you’ll love as much as I do.
