Here are all the tools I actively use regularly to run 3 Etsy shops, 2 YouTube channels and this blog. It is a reference for anyone that wants to run a successful business and want to get straight to the point.

Online Business Tools:
Hosting: I use GoDaddy. I have always used GoDaddy daily because of the ease of purchasing your domain and to pay for hosting all on one page. You are even able to pay monthly for your hosting, just in case you change your mind, you are not locked into a yearly hosting package.
Business Marketing: Vista Print is a company I have used for all of my business marketing. I know of others that use Moo, Zazzle, even Staples. Do your homework on pricing, quality and times. Ask other business owners/ shop owners what their preference is. Personally, I gave up the business cards as they become costly and ineffective over time. If you are more of a in person shop, then you would should have some sort of marketing material on hand at all times.
Planners and Supplies:
Planners: For the past 4-5 years I have used an Erin Condren Life Planner. I like the layout and of course the ability to decorate with stickers! Apart from that, her designs and paper quality has really improved over the years. I use the vertical for my everyday sticker addiction layouts and the hourly for my business/ content calendar. You can see all the different options here
Courses and Digital Products:
Office Supplies & Organization:
Goal Setting & Law of Attraction Methods
Books: I have read a lot of books over the years about goal setting and the law of attraction. Which in my eyes, need to go hand in hand. The following books I highly recommend based upon the growth I have experienced. Keep in mind that any and all methods work if you do the work. Strive for better not perfection.
