My Favorite Things

One of my most anticipated days of the year was when I would curl up on the couch with a notebook and turn on the Oprah Winfrey show to watch one of her most beloved segments: Oprah’s Favorite Things. Oh, how I loved to learn about her new and incredible finds to better her daily living….and mine.

I’m often asked for recommendations: favorite books and notebooks, trusted organizations and resources, tried-and-true tech tools and more. So, I thought I’d compile all my favorite things together, especially those where I can pass along a discount or free trial for you to make my favorites things your favorite things, too.

Here they are, in no particular order:


I believe in life-long learning and fill my days with reading, writing and exploring to truly experience the world and end each day a bit more fulfilled than the last. I read widely, write daily and dive deep into experiences like exploring clean eating, making hot chocolate bombs with my daughter, crafting my own notebooks ad even learning brush lettering. These small acts of learning (and self-care!) are what nourish and sustain me. And Skillshare makes this kind of creative learning incredibly easy to fit into my busy schedule. I can follow my whimsey and learn from leading experts at the click of a mouse, whenever and wherever it works for me. And you can, too! Join with my affiliate link and get 2 weeks for free!


While I love designing learning experiences for teacher, beautifully designing coaching tools, templates and images does not. Thank goodness for Canva! Canva makes designing all my coaching tools easy and even enjoyable: coaching invitations, bullet journal pages, opening moves, screensavers and more! I’m certain it will support your coaching, too. And, if you sign up with my affiliate link, you’ll get 30 days to try it yourself FREE!  


There’s only one thing more I love than receiving a beautifully designed email filled with information that is exactly what I am hoping for…..sending them myself! And Flodesk ensures that I can do just that with minimal technical skills. Flodesk is easy to use and I can easily design custom emails with just a few clicks.

I’m often asked what platform I host my online classes on because they are streamlined, organized and intuitive to use. My response? Kajabi. The all-in-one course creation software that makes it easy for me to do what I love most: design learning experiences for teachers and fellow lifelong learners. If you’re looking for a place where you can do the same, I urge you to give Kajabi a try. And guess what?
