Here are some of my favorite tools, plug-ins, courses, and things that make my life and business easier. Many of these make projects run smoothly or help me develop as a human being.
My goal in putting these together is to help you find some shortucts yourself. I'm a course junkie and tool enthusiast who reads a ton of business and self development or spiritual books, and I know how much personal time it can take to find the right tools and resources for your business. Hopefully one of these categories fulfills what you're looking for.
If you're looking for something related to social media, video marketing, online business development, or Facebook advertising and you don't see something here, reach out to me directly. Chances are I have experience with a tool or resource that can save you time. Try me at steph at stephaniroberts.com
- Blue Host - I've been with Blue Host for 22 years straight!
I joke that it's the longest term relationship I've ever had. True! And they've been there for me through thick and then. Always ready to help me with a website challenge, wordpress issue, setting up a Woo Commerce store, activating Stripe, moving domains, you name it. They've been there to help me.Yes, I'm a techy chick but it's always been great to know they have my back and will walk me through when I'm stuck. I've learned a ton from them over the years and honestly never ever considered switching to another host. I have no fewer than 12 domains hosted there!
