Driving Home from the camping trip this weekend my new camping buddies and I were talking about Books, and Podcasts that we would recommend to each other and the three of us came up with a little list of resources to share. Thinking back over the past year I feel like the resources I've used have been powerful, aiding me in designing and launching my business and finding the courage to leave corporate America. I'm sharing these resources i've used this year with all of you! What would you add to this list? Please comment below and help us build an even bigger list of helpful resources for everyone.

One of the biggest blocks to my ability to be creative and productive is anxiety and fear. Personally speaking, anxiety and fear can cripple my ability to be productive in my work. Employing a gratitude practice has been a HUGE antidote to disrupting fear and anxiety.
"To me travelers are open, free, unburdened by tasks and routines of ordinary life, and I find that good travelers are more willing to live in the present moment and go with the flow especially when challenges or unexpected events happen. After all, that's where the good stories come from."
It's normally in moments of walking that I feel the joy that is always present in my life. It's on walks that I realize joy is always right there if I stop and pay attention. Joy is always present and available to me.
