Ah, that New Year smell, when everything is fresh and new and only possibility lies ahead. But you’re not satisfied with possibility, are you? No… not you! You want to get things done. So, here’s a little New Year’s present for you: instead of the regular #swipefile, here are my top 5 tools from 2019 that will help you make your messages memorable and mighty in 2020.

Which ones will you be using this year? I’d love to hear.
