Most business owners have trusted and favorite resources that make their lives easier.   Some of mine are here so that  hopefully you can find a good team member too.

To make sure the U.S. gov’t is happy, I’ll also let you know that I am an affiliate in some cases, which means I get a few bucks if you choose to sign up through me. If you have any questions about any of my recommendations,  do not hesitate to contact me, and always do your own research before making any decisions.

Website Hosting
I’ve used this company for several years and have had a great experience all the way around:

Web Design

1. If you need a simple, yet full featured site, (which might be just fine if you are just starting out, you don’t have a lot of portfolio content, or you don’t do a lot of e-commerce) then check out Outstanding Setup. They are very affordable and again, you’ll have a functional site, much of which can actually be tweaked and customized. I have not used them personally yet, but I have had conversations with the owners and they also come recommended by someone else I greatly trust and respect.

2. If you need a  custom designed site or more robust features I suggest you talk to Jon at They happen to be in MI, just like me, (and pretty close by actually) but they can work with people just about anywhere.  They also offer hosting services.
