Each year I compile a list of ALL the coolest websites and tools to share with friends. It takes most of the year to find, discover, research, test and gather all these sites, apps and tools along with their information and links. You’ll find something here for everyone.
Many of these site’s will contribute to your personal health, wealth, business, personal success and enjoyment. Last year’s Coolest Websites and Online Tools 2012 won “most views” both here and on Facebook.
Most are FREE, a couple are “pay-after-trial” if you find them worthy, but ALL of them are worth checking out.
