10 Awesome Resources for Bloggers, Female Entrepreneurs & Women Business Owners



Over the past eight or so years of blogging and working on online businesses, there are a LOT of resources (books, ebooks, courses and training programs) that I’ve bought and used along the way.

Many have been hugely valuable. (Although others, not so much – which is why a good recommendation is so important!)

And there is at least a handful of resources that I’m super-quick to recommend because I just keep going back to them over and over, they’re so awesome!

The list of some of my favourite biz resources that you’ll find below are those books, ebooks, planners, groups, websites and tools that I’ve used myself and have recommended over and over to friends both IRL (In Real Life!) and online.

Each of these resources has been hugely valuable to me and that I’m sure you’ll find them a great help too, whatever stage of this biz journey you’re on.

2019 My Shining Year Biz Goals Workbook - Leonie Dawson

1.  2019 My Shining Year Biz Goals Workbook

I started out using the digital version of Leonie Dawson’s Shining Biz Workbook (along with the Life version) back in 2015. The following year – and every year since – I’ve bought the printed version, along with a new packet of fineliner pens, as an early Christmas gift to myself!!

Then some time between Christmas and January 1st, I make a planning date with myself {or even better, make a date with my biz bestie!} to dive in to this colourful and creative planning workbook to and have a whole lot of creative fun doing my biz planning for the year ahead.

Over the years I’ve recommended the Biz Workbook (and the Life version)  to friends, who’ve then bought and recommended them to their friends. We all love them!

If you enjoy getting creative {and colourful!} with your business and biz planning, I’m pretty sure you’ll love this workbook too!!

Passion Planner

2.  Passion Planner

This year was my first year using the Passion Planner. I was a little (a LOT!) envious of my friend’s gorgeous planner back at the beginning of 2017 (when we had our post-Christmas biz planning sesh!), so was super-excited when she ordered a planner for me along with her own at the end of last year.

The Passion Planner is a weekly planner with space to schedule all the biz and life things you want and need to get done each day. But it also has a whole lot of extra features, including two of my favourites: the “Passion Roadmap” and the “Monthly Reflection” pages. You can see all the features here.

So far this year, I’ve crossed off more big goals than I have in a long time. I LOVE that I can visually see this looking back on the Passion Roadmap I created at the start of the year.

If you don’t already have your 2019 planner sorted, or you’re looking for a great planner to help you achieve your life and biz goals in 2019 … The Passion Planner is an awesome way to stay on track and make your dreams happen!!

Playing Big - Tara Mohr

3.  Playing Big

There are SO many great books for female entrepreneurs, bloggers and business women! You can find a whole lot more of them here. But Tara Mohr’s book, Playing Big, is definitely one of my personal favourites.

As an expert in leadership, Tara recognised a pattern where many women with tremendous talent, ideas and aspiration were not recognising their own brilliance. They felt that they were ‘playing small’ in their lives and careers and wanted to ‘play bigger’, but didn’t know how. And so Tara devised a step-by-step programme for playing big from the inside out, resulting in both a course and this book, Playing Big.

I have a few favourite chapters in this book: “Hiding”, “Leaping”, “Callings” and “Make it Easy”. If you do buy a copy for yourself (or if you already have it on your own business bookshelf!) I’d love to know which chapters resonate most with you.

Profit First - Mike Michalowicz

4.  Profit First

In my free resource guide, this book comes under it’s own title of “The #1 book every entrepreneur should read!”. If you don’t have a copy of Profit First on your biz bookshelf or in your Kindle library, you probably should have!

In this easy-to-read and implement book, author Mike Michalowicz shows readers how to “transform your business from a cash eating monster to a money-making machine.” Who wouldn’t want that?!

Sharing case studies and step-by-step advice, with the author’s signature sense of humour, Profit First is the book that will help you create the financially successful business you’ve been dreaming of.

5.  Heart-Centred, Soul-Driven Entrepreneurs Facebook Group

The Heart-Centred, Soul-Driven Entrepreneurs Facebook group is a free group for women entrepreneurs created by business coach and mentor Tash Corbin.

If you’re looking to connect with other women online, in a space where female entrepreneurs share, learn, support and encourage each other, this group is an awesome place to start!

As I write this, the group has close to 30,000 members. Tash has created an amazing space, offering so much and so many opportunities to learn and grow your biz. And yep, totally free to join, so make sure you check it out!!

Canva

8.  Canva

What a fantastic free tool Canva is for bloggers and business owners to create beautifully designed graphics for print and online media.

And not even just for business really! (My son recently used Canva to create an awesome resume and I’m encouraging my daughter to get in also check it out for her uni design work.)

I’ve been using Canva a LOT lately to create images for my website, for Facebook posts and for Pinterest. It’s so easy to use, and almost as much fun as Pinterest!! And if you do get stuck – or need inspiration on what to create – a quick Pinterest or YouTube search should come up with some great Canva tutorials for you to follow.

Creative Market

9.  Creative Market

Creative Market is my favourite marketplace to search for all things graphic design-y for my biz and other creative projects. And to be honest, I know I haven’t even skimmed the surface of what’s available in there!

I love searching in Creative Market for gorgeous fonts, patterned papers, textures and web elements for blog and website design.

It’s also a great place to find stock photos, social media templates, blog design kits, blog themes, branding kits (like this awesome watercolour branding kit I bought a few months back!) and SO much more. And affordable too!

And it’s definitely worth getting on the Creative Market email list, so you’ll get notified of their weekly freebies and special offers.

And every episode of Glambition Radio is an opportunity to learn more not just from Ali herself but also from the amazing women that she interviews for the show.
