Net Worth Tracking

 I use Personal Capital to track my net worth and my investments. Personal Capital is by far the best tool I have used. They have a beautiful interface that makes it easy to link all of your bank accounts and investment accounts. See why I track my net worth here.

 

 

 

 

Web Hosting For Entrepreneurs and Bloggers

Bluehost: Bluehost is by far the best hosting service I have come across. They make it extremely easy to set up a website and offer constant support. They offer a free domain your first year and a free professional email address. Best of all, they have some of the lowest prices!

 

 

 

 

 

Taxes

We have used TuboTax for years. TurboTax is extremely easy to use. My wife is not financially savvy and she did our taxes last year without a problem! They also have a great app which you can complete your entire tax return on. Best of all, they have all of our previous tax information in one place ready to go.
