Resources

Throughout my life, it has been everything from personal development, self-discovery to self-help and then a Communications/Media degree in between that. I’ve attended seminars, taken courses on business and finances and read books galore.

Not exhaustive, but this page is a culmination of my hard earned pursuit of the healthiest image, mind, body, lifestyle and bad ass business wisdom I can gather. This is just the beginning and introduction to all things awesome, mystical and transformative. The many tools, and coolest resources provided here have led me to do what I now love doing.

The best part about being a Creative Image Consultant is that I can recommend my favorite things, whether in person during a consult or via my site. The way I see it, products and services are meant to make life more seamless. This page enlists an arsenal of highly recommended devices I employ to leverage my day to day.

P.S. These recommendations are usually exclusive with a consult but this page is a gift to my readers to make the most out of your insane transformation. I recommend keeping this page as a reference for your convenience.

Disclaimer: As a communications consultant some of these recommendations will naturally contain affiliate links, If you purchase through one of them, I will receive a commission (at no additional cost to you)
. Please know that I only ever endorse products that I have personally used, tested, tried or benefitted from. Thanks for your support!

From the moment of site and design conception, this was always my go-to marketplace for all themes and design related purchases. I like them because they are well known, have lots of option and give you a set of freebies each month.

Creative Market

For all your design related needs. Some might even consider them a competitor, but if anything it provides more diverse options which allows you to choose from an array of designs and products for your site. Another bonus, they also give amazing freebies each month. I use this site for everything design related, or sometimes even just for inspiration.

Plugins

Yoast

For those of you still learning how to manage your SEO strategies, start with this plugin for your site. I don’t know any blogger out there who doesn’t rely on the ease and stress free optimization functions that power up your site to a whole new level, making you a pro in the process.

MailChimp

Although not the only autoresponder I employ, it was the first one that I was attracted to and used. Seamless once you understand the basics of what an email service provider is for. The best part is that it is the only one that provides a fantastic, easy to use plugin for WordPress.

This book changes your thinking and helps you get started to a healthier body while maintaining a balanced hormonal structure.

Blogs

I could list here a wide range of amazing blogs, but for now I’ll stick to two and this one is my most favourite. Content regarding love and life will inspire you. It hits a nerve. In a good way.

The Image Alkemist is premised on the spiritual practices of Alchemy traditions and provides tools for living your best and healthy self for as long possible. Timeless You is a course that catapults you to do just that.

Millionaire Mind Experience

From the book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker, comes somewhat of a hybrid event called the  Millionaire Mind Intensive. I encourage, no…I challenge you to attend this seminar. This is no ordinary event. For anyone who is stuck financially or simply wants to accelerate their financial IQ and social capital, then this is the event for you. I laughed, cried, I was utterly terrified and opened my heart. I made life long friends. But most important of all, I did things I never in my wildest dreams thought I would do. I challenged myself to grow and break out of my comfort zone. This seminar is a must do at least once in your life. It’s extraordinarily life changing. If you don’t believe me see for your self. Best of all…its FREE. Heck I would travel to go to this event. Go here to check out the next event in your city. Oh and p.s. If you do attend, I would love it if you would send me an email telling me about your experience.

23andMe

Not necessarily a course but one of the coolest services around. 23andMe is personalized genetics testing and form of preventative health care thus far. They explain that “knowing about your DNA may enable you to take steps towards living a healthier life” and I couldn’t agree more.
