Everyone should have a Little Pink Book of people, place, and things that are on their A-listers. I know starting a business is no easy task and I put together this super helpful resource page that you can always come back to for all your business building needs. When I adore things, I like to share them with my friends. You may find me referencing this page a lot because I as the oldest of 3 – the only thing I will not share with you, is my drink. Enjoy!

People Who have Won my Heart and Changed My Life
If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a big money goal for this year. Lots of women have big blocks and fears around money or they feel like they’ve hit an income limit. Maybe you think your biggest income month was a fluke or you’re frustrated about raising your prices.
I want to introduce my friend and mentor, Denise Duffield-Thomas. She’s a mindset coach and the author of the awesome book, Get Rich, Lucky Bitch. She also has a special free resource – a 30 minute money audio class where she takes you through 7 common blocks (like bartering or undercharging) and helps you clear it right then with scripts of exactly what to say and do.
She also has an amazing Money Bootcamp (which I highly recommend) – it’s a MUST-DO resource for all female entrepreneurs who want to be successful.

Cool Apps that Make my Heart Swoon
If I am not at home, attending a dance or sporting event, you can find me in my zone at my favorite place. I am a GOLD card member — with my addiction, I buy 12 drinks and I get one free. I love to treat myself to some warm goodness.
