These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things


Talking with a client recently we discussed which plastic file folder would work best in their computer bag. They need something durable. I had several options-one had a slick, glossy finish and one with a slight grit to it to hold the papers in place better. The third file folder option was thick and very durable. Which one would you choose? You have lots of choices to make this holiday season. 

If you are looking for some great gifts that can give a boost to productivity, here are some of my most favorite go to items I use on a regular basis.

Moleskin Journal - Love them! Light and easy to carry. Great selection of colors with good quality paper to write on. The paper itself has some bleed through but with the right pen, that’s not an issue. Since moving their factory production to China the quality has changed but all in all a great product. Go old school this holiday season and give the gift of a journal.

Palomino Pencils-Poking around the Phoenix Art Museum gift shop last year, I found these amazing pencils. When sharpened you can smell the cedar wood used in it’s construction. The eraser is removeable for those big mistakes. Unlike the standard number 2 pencil you can replenish the eraser tip if you keep on making those mistakes. They are made in the USA. The perfect gift for someone who loves lead and needs a big eraser.

Studieux-This handy bag was found at Daiso. A Japanese store that can be found on the west coast. The bag is great for a person on the go. With several different pockets in can hold a variety of things. It’s good for keeping cords for phones, computers and tablets organized and accessible.

Coaching-Yes, even coaches have coaches. We all need direction and accountability. I hire coaches throughout the year to help me build my business. If you want to see an increase in profit, a better relationship with your customers and gain control of your workday give the gift of productivity coaching with me!
