The things that changed my life...

These are the materials that lit me up from the inside out. They changed me. They continue to change me. I recommend them all from the deepest part of my intuition that says that you could benefit from them too. Read them. Experience them. And then write me to talk about them....


The Fire Starter Sessions: Oh, Danielle Laporte, she just changes everything.  This book was the catalyst for me to open my mind to the idea of creating my own business (still a work in progress) and doing it totally on my terms.  Her style is sassy, direct, sensual, and raw.  I love this woman like she was my own alter-ego.  I curl up with this book FREQUENTLY, just when I need a soulful, honest, and inspiration kick in my ass to believe in myself and my own abilities.  Sing with me....She's just a girl and she's on FIRE....


Money: A Love Story This book really changed how I think about money, work, love and freedom.  Written by my new friend and mentor, Kate Northrup, this book opens your eyes to the idea that money is energy, and if we release the stories that we create around money we can find the meaning of true financial freedom. I highly recommend this book for everyone, even those who think they've got their relationship with money all figured out. It's about money and NOT about money, all at the same time. This is one that you read several times.


Daring Greatly: The work of Brene Brown is directly responsible for my blog. She inspired me to let down the "perfect" veil and just be real. Wholehearted, deliciously, wonderfully me. Talking about shame and vulnerability is not always an easy path, but Dr. Brown not only researches it, she lives it. I always feel more open after reading her work. I encourage ALL my clients to find her and embody the idea of wholehearted living.


Finding Your Own North Star: So, Martha Beck is my teacher. She has been since I read her first book. Anything you find by her is honest, open, engaging and will also give your real life tools to find your path in the world. Her humor, her honesty and her willingness to "go there" makes this book so important for anyone who is wanting to connect with they really are. If you're looking for permission, Martha will give it to you. Only first she'll show you how in order to find happiness, you really need to figure out what you are all about.
