For any small business, finding the right sets of tools and services can make a difference if your startup survives. When building our own business at 50skills, we try to keep our eyes open for new products and services, and constantly evaluate if there is anything we can do to improve our processing and offerings.
One of things that has been super helpful has been being part of the StartupResources community. Its a group of hundreds of startup enthusiasts that share knowledge on trending tools and services. Every week, there is a newsletter carefully curated, that sends out some of the top trending products, that the community has suggested. People often debate, ask questions and discuss different tools which can save a lot of time and give you ideas for you own products and services.
