My Favorite FREE Creative Resources for Entrepreneurs
Us modern day Entrepreneurs are oh so very LUCKY! Why? With the rise of the Internet, we have access to an also unlimited amount of knowledge and resources at the touch of our fingertips. While some, do cost money (some of which are worth the investment), others are completely and totally free! I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite creative resources for entrepreneurs. I always suggest to do your due diligence, however, and read the restrictions for Ts and Cs (terms and conditions) when something online seems too good to be true…because it probably is.
For Free Stock Photos:
My two favorite sites are Pixabay.com and Pexels.com.

For Royalty Free (with attribution) Music:
For royalty-free music, my first stop is always BenSound.com. Please note that some of the music does require you attribute the website in your credits. I like to think of it as I’m helping support another entrepreneur!
Here’s another site to check out: http://dig.ccmixter.org/free
For Free Fonts:
My personal favorite: DaFont.com – Filter fonts by 100% Free
Second in line: 1001Fonts.com – https://www.1001fonts.com/free-fonts-for-commercial-use.html
For Free Vectors and Graphics:
If you don’t know how to create your own vectors or graphics, try Vecteezy.com – filter by FREE Licensce: https://www.vecteezy.com/free-vector/free-vector-images-for-commercial-use?license-standard=true
For Free Websites:
WIX.com – Although “Free” does mean you have to use one of their domains, and they will likely show banner ads on your site. I’ve built a ton of websites on WIX, even if you decide to upgrade to connect your domain it’s relatively affordable – certainly more than hiring a unique web developer.
Weebly is another “semi-popular” free platform worth checking out.
WordPress – similar to both above, it’s free to a point.
