Sharpie pens - I might be alone on this one but I’m addicted.

House of Marley earbuds because they’re made with FSC Certified wood, recycled aluminium and a portion of the company’s proceeds go to support a global reforestry project.

Amazing Andrews Alleged Magickal Bath Soaks - I LOVE THEM so hard.

Think Tanks - where super intelligent and generous entrepreneurial girlfriends unite to help solve a business problem for one person. It’s brainstorming at its best. It’s multiple points of view from various disciplines and it feel SO DAMN GOOD to participate in them.

Seriously Considering for 2019. . .

Dubsado - this is a business management software that I’ve been eyeing up for a while. I’ve been through the super streamlined and not-at-all automated feeling of an onboarding process with someone I hired to help me this year. It was SO easy from a client point of view. So, basically, I need to get my shit in order so I can do this thing!

Wave Accounting - because I’m SO BAD at keeping track of everything (especially the numbers). Blah! And I really need to move beyond a folder that’s labelled Accounting Sucks. Also, this is FREE so there are zero downsides to trying it out.

Reiki Traning - I’m a master in Usui Reiki and Kundalini Reiki. And someday I’ll do Hillary’s yoga training as well!

She is LIT: Dedication & Devotion: The Venus Codes - A very cool 28 day writing experience with Lisa Lister

The Abundant Heart Institute - a course dedicated to self-love and self-care. I’m going to be using these practices for the rest of my life.

The Mindfully Curated - loved this experience with my friend Kira Rudjen. I received a painting she made just for me plus some gorgeous crystals and so much love and wisdom. Highly recommend you check her out!

Plus I got to take my kids to the largest gem show in Canada. And I took my Mom to the Aquarium for the first time - yes the kids came too!
