My husband always invested in software tools. I could not understand this seemingly pointless consumption until I created my own online business. I was a Speech Therapist and my husband was a Memory Specialist. We had so much to teach and share with the world! In my mind, an online business was the solution! How hard could it actually be? We are ten years down the line now and we are still learning and figuring things out about this ever-changing virtual world! I still use all the software tools he brought and it has saved me a lot of time, money and frustration.
