Asana — Excellent, easy to use project management software. I love Asana because it isn’t overly complicated. It helps me streamline and track personal and business projects. And, I can add team members to specific projects or tasks. Each time we need to communicate about a task or project we can do so in Asana, rather than bombarding each other with emails and loosing the thread of activity.

Grow Yourself, Grow Your Business! — a free, value-packed playlist of recordings with masterful coaches Michelle Goss & Carol Greenaway. We focus on the essential link between internal resources (beliefs, attitudes, thoughts & feelings) and external results in life and in business. Click here for links to past recordings. We cover topics such as “Help! I’m an Information Addict!” and “Busting Perfectionism”.
Your Enneagram Drive — This ancient matrix remains a powerful tool for understanding self, life, and others. It can be a centerpiece for your growth, or simply an additional tool that supports you. Either way, I highly recommend you take the validated test (yes, there’s a free version but the validated test is significantly better and it’s only $10) that is offered through the Enneagram Institute’s web site.
Managing Your Inner Critic(s) — Shirzad Chamine has created a brilliant 5-minute assessment that will highlight your dominant saboteurs, how they are likely to trip you up, and what to do about them. Highly, highly, highly, highly recommended. His book, Positive Intelligence is very good and takes the results of your assessment deeper. Illuminating and practical.
