Happy new year!

Right when I think there isn’t one more tool I can write about, four or five new ones enter my life… Sometimes thanks to one of you 🙂

Innovation is happening around us every day and there are multiple tools I’ve been using and haven’t shared yet I hope will bring joy to your life in 2019!

In the meantime, for today, here’s a directory of all 47 Tool Tuesday’s to date for your reference with a one liner next to them in case you’re looking for some tools to supercharge your new year! I’ve put a * next to the ones I use every week.
