Running an online business is tough. There are so many aspects to it that many have never even thought about before starting.

From servicing clients to creating content to marketing to creating products and everything else in between. There is a LOT to do.

We entrepreneurs wear many different hats and are forced to learn many different skills along the way. I say forced, but really I love that I get to learn all these things.

However, when you’re first starting out it can be a tad overwhelming. Not knowing where to begin setting up your business online can be stressful.

Not only that, but even after being in business for years, there are still things you may have never done before. Or maybe you simply need some extra motivation to keep you going.

Whatever the case, these are my top go-to role models that I love learning from at the moment. I wanted to share with you in case you’re looking to learn something new or get inspired.



I first learned about Marie Forleo about 4 years ago. I took her online course called B-School in 2015 and it seriously changed my life. It changed the way I look at being self-employed and opened my eyes up to a whole new range of possibilities.

It was her that first introduced me to the concept of a location-independent business. As soon as I heard that, it instantly clicked with me and resulted in me changing my entire business model.

Her B-School program was the best online education I’ve ever invested in. I learned SO MUCH about running an online business the right way. She also has a YouTube channel where you can learn a whole lot for free.



I actually purchased the B-School program through Amy Porterfield because she was one of the affiliates selling it. Her bonus included a business building workshop in San Diego, so I got to meet Amy in person there!

Let me tell you, this lady is incredible. She is the most down to earth woman who’s super successful at the same time. She teaches so much valuable information for free plus she has some amazing courses.

Her specialty nowadays is actually teaching people how to build profitable online courses, which is why I’m currently obsessed with her podcast. Since I’m in the process of creating my own course, I devour her content every chance I get. You’ll love this lady!



This guy has a fantastic blend of the masculine and feminine energies. It may sound funny, but what that means is that he teaches how to master the mindset as well as take action in the most powerful way. He believes that hard work and hustle are NOT essential for success. And I love him for saying that!

He’s got a free training called Activate and I highly recommend you check it out.

I also listen to his podcast called Mind Your Business for daily inspiration.



I came across this lady on Instagram and I’ve been following her ever since. She is very authentic and transparent about what really goes on behind the scenes of being an entrepreneur.

This is why I love listening to her podcast called Raw Milk. It’s people like her that remind us that perfection does not exist and striving for it is downright silly.

It’s a breath of fresh air to listen to her talk about her struggles as an entrepreneur because it makes me feel like I’m not alone. She’ll be the first one to tell you that even the people who seem crazy successful go through moments of doubt and experience fears.

Plus, I’m super inspired by her creativity and seeing her juggle her multiple passions.



Another down to earth, authentic and multi-passionate creative here. I think it’s obvious I have a certain type by now. :)

Jenna has a fabulous podcast too called Goal Digger as well as a dedicated Facebook group for all listeners. It’s one of my favourite groups on FB!

What you can expect to learn from this lady is all things related to business strategy. From list building to Pinterest marketing to photography tips, she’s got you covered.

She’s also very big on cultivating a positive body image, which is a nice bonus.

There are many more people online that I love learning from, but these ones seem to be the ones I always come back to.
