- Blue Host – I’ve been with Blue Host for 22 years straight! I joke that it’s the longest term relationship I’ve ever had. True! And they’ve been there for me through thick and then. Always ready to help me with a website challenge, wordpress issue, setting up a Woo Commerce store, activating Stripe, moving domains, you name it. They’ve been there to help me. Yes, I’m a techy chick but it’s always been great to know they have my back and will walk me through when I’m stuck. I’ve learned a ton from them over the years and honestly never ever considered switching to another host. I have no fewer than 12 domains hosted there!

Programs and Courses
Maria Forleo’s B-School
Marie Forleo’s B-School is the premier training course for women who want to make an impact but don’t yet have an understanding of the online realm and social media. I think of it as a sorority of women who also want to help each other out, collaborate, and network. Many people I know rave about B-School and the impact that it’s had on their lives. I’m a big fan of Amy Porterfield and she credits much of her success to Marie’s program.Marie only launches the program once or twice a year. So if you’re interested in the program and want to jump in you’ll have to wait until the beginning of the year or the summertime.
