Startup Tools



If you are a startup, entrepreneur or small business owner, these highly recommended resources can help you take things to the next level.



For Hosting and Building Your Websites and Blogs


All of my niche websites are hosted on Hostgator. Why? Because they make it incredibly easy to get a new site up and running with their one-click automatic WordPress Blog installation.

You can use your Hostgator account to host multiple domains—no need to pay more for hosting when you’re ready to start another website. Also, they provide outstanding customer service. Phone is best, they are happy to talk direct.

I highly recommend using Hostgator for your first website, and you can get started now at $2.75/month, which is an exclusive Listenup Show reader deal!

Use Images to Enhance Your Blog Posts


Know what images you should use on your website. I use Canva and Unsplash from the internet and use it—so take a look! Worry-less, stay free and educate yourself here.


This is where I purchase royalty-free images that I use on my sites. There’s never a shortage of really great images to choose from.

So why not just take that next step?

Hey there, you know me from the Listen Up Podcast, the Mitchell Chadrow Show. You can use my help and I am here for you and your family. It would be great to hear from you so that I know your specific situation and circumstances. Just let me know and submit your question below.

I'm an entrepreneur, trusted advisor and have been an attorney and banker for over 20 years. My new goal is to help young entrepreneurs, startups, families transitioning from working for someone else to working for themselves and recent retirees transitioning to the new economy.

Sure entrepreneurs face challenges but I believe entrepreneurship can lead to a better business, family and life balance. For me the goal has always been financial independence, having more control over my time, creating a great business that provides me with satisfied work which also helps me with a much happier family and life balance. (If this type of balance gives you the same terrific feelings of goodness, it would be great to help you and your family reach these goals!)

Today I'm attempting to provide entrepreneurs, business owners, new startups and those transitioning to self-employment balance their business, family and life in a much better, easier way for those like you by providing my help, advice and premium resources and guidance.

I believe entrepreneurship is the right business decision for work in this new new economy. My passion and goal will be to help 1,000 business minded people become entrepreneurs over the next 3 years.

So why not start your business and learn how to balance business, family and life for you and the people you care about and count on you? I want to hear back from you so please provide as much detail as you can! Submit your follow up below.

Thank you in advance for allowing me to help you and your family!
