Here are a few of my FAVOURITE Resources for Product Development ~
If your ideas are all about Fashion, Shoe & Bag Design, then you will LOVE Fashionary, the industry standard. They have fabulous sketchbooks, reference books, and more ~
I use their Fashionary Sketch Books, Fashionpedia as well as their Fashionary Business Manual. I'm a big fan of history as well as sketchbooks so they have my number, lol.
If you love the History behind Fashion and the Culture of Fashion, check out Googles work creating We Wear Culture which is a searchable collection of over 400 curated fashion collections ~ It is insanely satisfying to flip through these beautiful museum curated caliber of fashions.

If you are working on your Brand Statement ~
I happen to love the one at FIT NYC, it is a solid guideline for you in beginning your draft of your Brand Philosophy... Looks like FIT updated their website, so let me find it or a great reference to replace it with soonest.
Finance Resources ~
If you are balancing between building your business and concerned about how to manage your finances with an income that is not consistent, then my friend David M Sharp's book " The Thriving Artist " is a fabulous, practical guide to building wealth.
It is about Saving & Investing. He wrote it for performers, artists, stage & film industry peeps, however, I believe there are SO many great gems in it that I think he wrote it for you.
You can also follow him on his Facebook Page The Thriving Artist where he offers many great tips & tricks to financial stability.
