Being a business owner doesn’t come with a handbook, a huge team and a set schedule; it comes with coffee shops, long days & A LOT of googling. Along my journey of starting Olivia Design & Company, i’ve learned a ton along the way, and i’m not one to keep it to myself.
Below are all resources that use EVERY SINGLE DAY that help me run my business successfully & keep my clients happy!

Pinterest is often mistaken as a social media, but it’s actually a search engine that many people use. By adding your posts, pictures and products to Pinterest, it increases traffic to your website & increases your SEO… ummm win win win!
The best part about Tailwind is that you can join tribes that are targeted to your niche! You can post your pictures, blogs, services, email list, anything to these targeted tribes. How awesome is that!?

To keep track of all of my invoices, profit & loss I use Quickbooks. It’s only $17/month and I can easily send clients invoices, just as easily as they can pay them. It’s also a breeze when it comes to paying taxes! You can export your expense list and send it to your CPA and categorize everything that comes in and out.
