Storing and Organising Notes
I use Evernote (affiliate link)to store and organise all my notes. I use Chrome as my main browser and have the clip to evernote extension allowing me to capture and save any interesting notes. With the iPhone app I am able to photograph and upload notes I've written, images, business cards, receipts and more and upload them to my relevant folders. I highly recommend the Pro-Evernote for a range of uses for business.
Another great free tool is Pocket— good for storing webpages you want to read later. Use on the iPhone too.

I've built more than 50 WordPress sites over the years due to the functionality it offers my clients. However they can be costly as they require annual hosting and regular maintenance, security and backups.
If you don't have $2 000-$3 000+ to create and host a WordPress website, I strongly recommend that you go with a Wix website. Hosting and all updates are managed as a part of your package from around $16pm.
