  • We asked our speakers to tell us what their go-to books, website, apps, coaches and strategies were. Here is what they recommended:

  • FB page: My vote goes to Tasty. I spend far too long watching their accelerated cooking videos drooling over future things I plan on making but never actually get to. From a more businessy video standpoint, I really appreciate Wistia for their usage insights.

    App: FB/Redfin/Notes

    Business coach: He’s not a business coach per say, but we enjoy watching Casey Neistat and see him as a quasi-pioneer in the vlogging market.
