Tony continues to develop live events, training programs, and coaching to improve lives and businesses around the world. Tony Robbins is a leader in this field and I would highly recommend his company.

Louisiana Small Business Development Center
I'm am confident that the LSBDC organization extremely helpful but I have worked personally with the Lafayette location. They are an excellent source for business planning and funding.
I've recently started to use Constant Contact and so far so awesome. It was very simple to create email campaigns. And there is a lot of support to improve the open rates and conversion rates. They also provide templates and other helpful resources.
GoDaddy is the only domain name and web hosting services I've personally used because I have never had a bad experience. The one time I've had an issue, the customer service team called me before I even knew there was a problem and fixed it quickly.
I've relied on the Opportunity Machine for the affordable workspace/office, invaluable training classes, and a supportive entrepreneurial community. They are based in Lafayette, LA and are devoted to helping business growth in Acadiana.

I recommend GeauxBiz when to complete all your legal requirements to start a business in Louisiana. I like that they have a focus on Louisiana because nationwide companies are a little harder to trust.
