I love my niece!
Every craftsperson has a toolbox that they rely upon to help them get their job done to the best of their ability. If you’re a carpenter, you have sharp saws, chisels, hammers, screwdrivers in multiple sizes, an excellent tool belt, and a box to carry it all. When you arrive at a job site, you are ready to go, ready to provide your best effort to the problem at hand. You can judge a craftsperson by the quality of their tools.
My toolbox consists of my computer, phone, and an internet connection. With these 3 items, I can talk with people and design, build, deploy and maintain high quality websites. I can consult, share ideas, help discover insights that can transform lives. I love my job, and having excellent tools is truly something to be grateful for.
I like my Apple products so much that I’ve even invested in AAPL. I currently own 8 shares and hope to acquire more, as long as they continue making excellent tools.
These provide utility and delight for me every day:
As you probably know, I love using WordPress to build websites for my clients. It remains the easiest to use solution, and the plugins and themes available are wonderful. It keeps on getting better all the time, and is a core asset that I rely on to get things accomplished that would take much longer any other way.
What are your favorite tools to use?
Once again it is November, and I am very grateful to have a job that lets me work directly with a bunch of wonderful clients. Most of my clients this year are are small non-profits, church groups, and people who in general are trying to make the world a better place. I LOVE helping them communicate more effectively. It is very rewarding to help break down barriers and walls that people have been holding onto, and help show them how to really express themselves in this wonderful digital era of the Internet, social media and excellent communication tools.
I’m really glad and grateful for the progress that everyone has made, and will continue to make in the future…
