Last night aired a news story that I had the fortune to be part of about web sites people should know about. It was easy for me to come up with a couple sites that I thought everyone should know about: mint.com and pandora.com. I love these sites – real love. After that though, I had a tough time thinking of any others that I think everyone should have in their arsenal. Maybe I’m a little old fashion, but I think everyone should have a portal home page, for me it’s iGoogle.com. It has become a necessity for me to bring everything that I like to keep an eye on into one place where I can quickly keep up to date. A lot of my suggestions for web sites are about being more efficient. Which makes sense, since we are in the business of making people more performant.
Most of my other suggestions are for small business owners or programmer-types. For payroll, I think all small businesses should use paycycle.com. It makes payroll easy. Which for someone that is more interested in helping our clients than managing the office, is a must-have.
There were a couple of comments on the wowt.com site that say they’d like to see more of this type of information. Hopefully, I did an okay enough job that I might be able to share some more. Let us know what you think are the sites that everyone should be using.
