Welcome to BS’ing with Brandi where my mission is to help you #GetShitDone. I'm your host Brandi Good and today we’re going to talk about some tools that you could be using in your business to help with things like sales, content curation, online events, social media, productivity, and more! And the really cool thing about all of the tools I’m going to highlight today is that they are all from companies founded by people of color.








Looking for a specific snippet of the podcast but don’t have time to listen to the entire thing again? All of my podcasts are now keyword searchable - type the word(s) you’re looking for and then jump to that spot in the podcast!



Some of these are tools I use now or have used in the past, and some of these were completely new to me before I did my research but I’m super happy to be adding them to my collection of kick ass business resources.
