As a coach, I am constantly on the lookout for inspiration and helpful tools, both for myself and for my clients. There is no shortage of them here in Oakland and the surrounding Bay Area. I'm sure you have your own sources in your part of the world. And then, there is the beauty and broad reach of the internet. Below are a few of my favorite people, places and things that are electronically accessible. They feed my thirst for self-awareness, pique my curiosity, and in many ways bring me JOY. I love sharing them with fellow travelers on this never-ending journey of self-discovery and personal development that we call life. And no, I was not asked to include any of them, and receive no kickbacks. I hope you find something you like here.

With Love,
