There's only one author listed here even thought there are lots of great sales books, and that's because this author has written the most valuable sales book I've ever come across.
If you'd like to know more about the author, check out our interview from The Business Building Rockstars Show.
How the World Sees You by Sally Hogshead (The audio and physical books come with a code to take her Fascination Advantage® Assessment for free. I've been told that the Kindle version does not.)
WP Engine: *GET 5-MONTHS FREE FOR BLACK FRIDAY* WP Engine is my top recommendation for WordPress website hosting. They may cost more than the other guys but trust me when I say that you get what you pay for! If you want to hear what happened when I left WP Engine and why I switched back, Tweet me at @niczthename
1&1 IONES: These guys are comparable to hosting plans with GoDaddy and BlueHost but I prefer the customer experience here and also buy all of my domains from them.
Online Course & Membership Hosting
Thinkific: *TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEIR CRAZY BLACK FRIDAY DEAL!* Thinkific is my top recommendation if you're looking for a simple, beautiful, flexible, place to host your programs without needing to have an ounce of technical acumen. It's a great platform to use if you're looking for a plug and play solution that will be up and running in no time.
LifterLMS: *TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEIR AWESOME BLACK FRIDAY DEAL!* If you are a WordPress user then there's no sense in going elsewhere to power your course and memberships. Get the LifterLMS plug-in and add-ons on your site and your website will turn into your very own online college! There's no limit on the number of courses you can run or anything else for that matter. It's your site, your content, and your rules. I love being able to self host my programs and if you're on WordPress LifterLMS in the best there is!
Simplero: I have personally been a Simplero customer for years and really appreciate how the product has grown and serves businesses from just starting out up to enterprise level. Whether you're only looking for an email management system that's sophisticated enough to do all the fancy things, yet simple enough to manage yourself, or you're looking for an all-in-one solution to host your digital courses, memberships, products, and more, Simplero has a solid and affordable solution for you.
SendLane: These guys have a VERY powerful solution for e-commerce companies. If you're doing well and looking to scale, SendLane's got some crazy ninja stuff they can help you deploy to crank up your conversion and email marketing game!
Acuity Scheduling: The #1 solution. The only one I recommend. Acuity is a complete CRM for high-touch service based businesses that can be customized to essentially run your virtual front office for less than $1.00/day. It is a powerhouse and if you have a business (or podcast) that ever schedules appointments, you need Acuity in your life. If you become an Acuity Scheduling customer through my link, let me know and I'll be happy to share some ninja automation and applications that even their employees and certified people don't know. 💜

Recommended Mentors & Programs
Marisa Murgatroyd: If you are serious about building an online business but so far you either haven't been sure what to create or how to sell a high-ticket offer, or aren't able to sell the programs or services you offer and are tired of trying to figure it out on your own and feeling defeated, I highly recommend her Experience Product Masterclass. She even guarantees that you'll make $2,000 or more within 10-weeks or will make up the difference out of her pocket.
This woman is a brilliant, super solid leader in the digital marketing space and there's nobody I'd recommend more highly for this.
