I provide links to Amazon with most of my art projects to make it easier for you.Whether you are shopping for art supplies, books, back to school supplies – you can’t beat Amazon.I shop for pretty much everything on Amazon.
It’s really your best choice online to find what you need at the best price, quickest shipping, etc. Shop from the convenience of home and have your art supplies delivered.
These are some of my favorite books by some of my favorite people…
It was Pat Flynn that first inspired me when I heard him interviewed on the Entrepreneur on Fire podcast. That interview and discovering Pat’s podcast really opened my eyes to a whole new world of online business and blogging. Pat’s honest, transparent approach combined and winning personality make him one of my favorite entrepreneurs to follow.
One of the entrepreneurs introduced to me via Pat’s podcast is Gary Vaynerchuk. You could probably say I’m a “Vayniac”. His honest and raw communication cuts to the chase and delivers real actionable advice (if you’re offended by foul language – he’s not for you). Gary’s story is amazing.
Anyone who is creative or desires to be creative needs to read Larry Gluck‘s book as well. He dispels that old myth of needing “talent” to be an artist. Anyone can do it – they really can!! This book opens the door to the possibilities that exist when one does not limit themselves by old belief systems and limited thinking. Larry’s encouraging words will inspire anyone to add creativity to their life and share it with others.
I decided to use Bluehost based on their great pricing. Once I signed up, I learned how EXCELLENT their customer service is. I’ve been extremely happy with them and can’t recommend them enough. They also have a vast selection of great tutorial videos if you’re new to WordPress, etc.
I can’t say enough things about Elegant Themes. I absolutely LOVE this Divi theme. The user interface is so easy to learn that anyone, I mean anyone, can do it. Or you can have me do it for you – I love it! The tutorial videos are awesome and they share great WordPress tips in their weekly newsletter too.
I love the ability to see all the numbers that matter when it comes to SEO and making the right choices for key words and search criteria. The tutorials they provide make it very easy to understand and fun to use. I’ve watched every video they’ve sent me and found them all to very informative and useful.
