Okay, so you’ve been wandering the interwebs for some time now, and you’re starting to recognize some names out there.

Names you’ve heard repeated throughout blogs and on social media.

You may have even clicked over to their blog to check them out.

Maybe they are the blogger you dream of being, or the self-development guru you go to for inspiration.

These are the best people to follow!

The ones who lift us up, who guide us during troubled times in our online business, the ones who give advice and who are tangibly available to talk to through the magic of the internet!

They’re our internet online-friends, and our mentors whom we’ve never met.
They’re the ones that Rachel Hollis says we need to listen to and learn from as our mentors!

The ones who give you true value and really help with all they’ve got.

But it can be hard to find the ones you really connect with, whom you recommend to your real life friends, and those who’s journey you want to follow.

So I wanted to save you some time weeding through the interwebs and numerous other blogs and noise out there to give you the best of the best when it comes to online business and personal dev.

Since both go hand-in-hand, these bloggers often talk about one or the other or both topics.

These are my favorite bloggers of the moment!

The ones you are missing out on if you aren’t following!

01 |  Amy Landino

Because she is very professional, high quality content, loves her audience, and has the freedom to travel wherever she wants and meets awesome people.  She’s worked with Gary Vaynerchuk, narrated a chapter in his book, runs a video marketing business with her husband and totally crushing it.
I love her – and it’s hard not to be envious of that cute face and totally gorgeous style!

Angle:
Using video to improve digital marketing for business – and going after the life you want!

Melanie has freedom in her life, she lives unbalanced between work and play which I love, because I don’t like to choose specific times to work or play either. I don’t like to follow the rules that way – what rebels we are! She teaches how to start and scale successful online businesses, whether that’s a podcast, ecommerce shop, or something else! Her style is something I envy, and try to absorb into my own business. Never underestimate the power of branding!

Angle:
Using freedom to improve your success as an entrepreneur.
“Work from wherever” is her tagline.

03 | Allison Lindstrom

I first found Allison when I was taking some of the courses in the Genius Bloggers Toolkit. It turns out, her idea of running a business and how she actually works and functions actually aligned well with my own mind – and that’s rare! You can have tons of people teaching blogging, but if what they say doesn’t resonate with you or help you understand or take action – they’re the wrong teacher for you!
Her methods of productivity and saving time while working and growing her business is very similar to how I like to do things and it gave me a clear birds eye view of where to take my business, while seeing the nitty gritty details.

Angle:
Helping bloggers grow their blogging business without going insane with overwhelm

My Favorite Content From Her:
Blogging Goals And How to Calculate Sales To Achieve Them
Her videos are good, funny, informative, entertaining – all the things. Check them out!

You can find her here!

(from her blogs sidebar since I’m unable to find an Instagram!)

Rosemarie is in the Elite Blog Academy with me – and she had some fantastic results starting the blog from the ground up. She’s known for tough love, no BS, and super valuable actionable tips! I’ve purchased her Date Your List ebook and it was fantastic in helping me determine the value of my email list! She used to be a deputy and then became a blogger to stay home with her family.

She’s spoken at the EBA Activate Live events, and once explained blogging like this, that’s stuck with  me:
“Look – we’re blogging. We’re not digging ditches. It’s not hard.”
Something along those lines – and she’s totally right! Blogging and running an online business isn’t really a difficult job. It takes work like ALL jobs – wouldn’t you rather do one you love?

Angle:
Using video to improve digital marketing for business

My Favorite Content From Her:

I actually really love reading her income reports. She stopped doing them because her income got so high from blogging that she was afraid her readers would find it less relatable.
Instead, she opened her doors to other bloggers where she was able to point out, from a business standpoint, what they should be doing at any given time. She’s a list-slasher – and will tell you just like it is, and what you need to do next! It’s really valuable information if you’re a blogger, check them out here!

You can find her here or here!

05 | Allison with Wonderlass

Allison, in three words: Colorful, Happy, Unicorn. Yep, lol! Her backstory is that she worked on her business tirelessly for 10 years before she realized she was doing something wrong, and took a lot of action to resolve the issues in her blogging business. She launched lots of courses, and did a lot of failing forward, and today she’s totally KILLING it with her magic, and I hear her courses are amazing!

She also suffered from depression and anxiety – and has talked about how she’s been able to handle it being an introverted business owner (yes you can be colorful and happy while still being an introvert!)

Angle:
Using tangible actions to cure overwhelm for entrepreneurs – teaching sales, marketing, and overall self-improvement!

My Favorite Content From Her:
Her new podcast is fantastic! You should definitely listen to a few episodes!

Another SUPER great resource of hers is her Facebook page, where she’s uploaded webinars that talk about sales funnels – it’s really full of value and packs a punch! Check them out here!

And her awesome Youtube channel!

06 | Jessica Stansberry!

Sometimes I’m up and ready to conquer the day by 6:00am and sometimes I go back to bed after the kids go to school. Balance, right? Ha! 🖐🏻I think it’s really important that we recognize that there are seasons for EVERYTHING in life; 🏃🏻‍♀️Maybe you’re training for a marathon but then for the next six months you only run a few miles a week. 💻You schedule a launch of a big product and put your head down for 6 weeks getting ready, but the next 6 weeks you only work 20 hours/week. 👶🏻Your kids are little and they require a lot of you which might mean less work time, less time to workout, whatever – but soon they’ll be off to school and needing less and less of you so you have more and more time. Work-life balance is a myth and I HATE the term because there’s never a balance, there’s always going to be a swinging of all the things you have to juggle on the scale. And, that’s ok. 🛑SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK! Work-life balance is a myth, you have to do the best you can in the season that you’re in. 💥Happy Friday! 💥

Okay okay, I know I said 5, but I really love Jessica, too! I had to include her just for the sheer value she provides, and her cute Instagram story videos lol. If you learn toward the more techy things, or need help with the tech stuff and market stuff – she’s the girl for you!

Angle:
How to use content and tech to make passive income in your online business so you aren’t, in her words, “chasing that dolla dolla bill, ya’ll!”

My Favorite Content From Her:
Don’t forget to check out the rest of her Youtube channel and blog – oh, and her newsletters are always good! She’s got TONS of helpful content for online entrepreneurs!
