Suggest a longer presentation. Since collaboration is our focus, consider a presentation on a successful (or not) collaboration effort. You may be working with customers to identify content needs or asking customers to contribute content. You may be developing a strategy that links documentation and training or documentation and service or includes content marketing. You may want to talk about another theme identified in the CIDM member survey. You might even suggest a panel or a workshop. Your choice.
With tens of thousands of solutions out there, it is getting harder to find a suite of productivity and creative solutions that enable you to meet your business goals and focus on the mission of your business without struggling on finding the best ways to just get things done. There are certain solutions that you hear about all of the time, others that are just beyond the scope of a small business, but here is a curated list that will enable you to meet your business and creative needs end to end with solutions that may be completely off your radar.
**Here we are trying to create a directory of your best tech options for:**
- getting and being found and relevant online,
- reaching and communicating with your audiences
- contact management,
- social media marketing,
- collaboration and project management
- sales and invoicing,
- and more
Our goal is a curated list of the best options for you and others like you to build a suite of solutions and then move on to running your business. This list is more geared towards to the solo entrepreneur or the small business not enterprise solutions, so price is noted as much as possible and ranks as a higher consideration. We're also looking at multi-purpose tools and suites to make your business or creative process as integrated and simple as possible. In brief: what do you use everyday? What business challenges are eating up your time and you want the best and most cost efficient set of solutions?
A new project, as others that we are first launching on list.ly and will then move onto our newly branded network of sites- please add your input on the apps, SaaS (software as a service, subscription software, or otherwise known as online solutions that enable you to get the latest upgrades without making hefty purchases.) and if any software exists that is still worth the actual full purchase- include that also. Help other entrepreneurs and creatives who are getting off the ground, or stuck in the time wasteland of running the business when they, like you, want to focus on doing their best possible work in the area of their passion.
I thought it would be helpful to include a Resources page gathering all the tools, products and resources I use regularly and thought could be beneficial to you.
If you think I should use other tools or better ones, contribute to this list!

Most of us have a moment in our lives when we realize it's time to start asking big questions about our futures & careers. There are some great articles & resources for exploring those questions & learning about career paths. Check out some of these (excerpts are included, and, with exception of larger collections, I've read or used all on the list). There's a focus on PhD & science careers here, but some are broadly applicable.
