Resources - Catherine Guidry Photography

Resources + discounts

From the outside I'm technically a "one woman show" and although I don't have any full-time employees, I utilize a multitude of platforms that act as "workers" for my business. For example, I use Quickbooks to manage my accounting software, Dubsado to manage my clients, Planoly to plan and layout my instagram grid.

So, no I don't have a ton of employees but that is because I have found and learned thoroughly the tools that help run my business efficiently. I am so excited to share these programs and companies with you in hopes that they can help your business grow too!!

A Complete List of Resources that Help Run My Business
