Resources AKA Tools of the Trade, online business tools, things-to-help-you-get-things-done.
I thought it would be useful to create a resource page for you as you begin Selling Zeroes and Ones yourself. I’ll add to it as I learn more and will reference this page in the future. Enjoy!

My Most Recommended
Web hosting: Bluehost – This website is hosted on Bluehost. They have easy 1-click installation of WordPress and great customer service. Also, you can use the same hosting account for multiple domains if you plan on creating more websites (I currently have 4 websites on the same Bluehost account).
Email marketing and autoresponder: GetResponse – Email marketing service I recommend for building an email list. World’s easiest email marketing service with over 350,000 customers (including me!). Fantastic 24/7 customer service and a 1 month free trial (no credit card required).
WordPress theme: Elegant Themes – The site that I recommend for getting a great WordPress theme. SellingZeroesAndOnes is running the Divi Theme from Elegant Themes. The cutting edge drag and drop Divi page builder makes design a breeze. Divi is also incredibly responsive which is even more crucial for search rankings following Google’s mobile friendly update.
The book that set me on the path of an entrepreneur. First published “way back” in 1997, the ideas contained in this book have inspired many ordinary people to get out of the rat race and become entrepreneurs and investors. In my opinion, Rich Dad Poor Dad is a must read for enabling the mindset required for an online business.
The grand daddy of personal development books. The timeless lessons of success are just as relevant today as they were when this gem was published in 1937. The stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Charles M Schwab, and other millionaires are used to illustrate the principles and philosophies that have been proven to produce success and ultimately great wealth.
Note: Only purchase this if you have first read Think and Grow Rich
This book, which complements Think and Grow Rich, reveals the author’s take on the hidden secret Napoleon Hill speaks about in his book. Everyone is supposed to figure out the secret for themselves and as such it is open to interpretation, however Brian Kim seems to have got it. Great actionable material that puts all the pieces into place; the “recipe” for success instead of just the “ingredients”.
