I’ve tested just about every planner, journal, and notebook on the market. Review my recommendations and find the right fit for you.

GAA Resources

We all learn and find inspiration in our own unique way. I’ve compiled my favorite tools and resources for reading, listening, watching and practicing.


Hear from me twice a month. I’ll share goal setting tips and tricks, new resources and reviews, and other insights to inspire your goal setting journey.

Printable Templates

I encourage you to print one of each to start. Experiment with the format that works best and make a ton of copies once you’ve found what works best!

Notion Templates

Coming soon! I use Notion to help me keep track of all the goal setting resources I’ve compiled over the years. I am building templates for those of you who prefer to track your goals online.
