Resources I Recommend
By Julie Jacky, Certified Financial Coach & EFT Practitioner!
Following is a list of companies that I buy from and believe in. I do have affiliate relationships with some of them, which means that when you purchase from them, I get a small percentage of the purchase price. Regardless, I only have companies listed on this page that I have used myself and 100% support. Feel free to give them a try!
(Listed in alphabetical order in categories because they’re all equally amazing!)
After trying a few different scheduling systems and getting frustrated, I was introduced to Acuity. My frustrations soon turned to relief! Acuity is easy to use, has multiple functions, and is a huge time saver for the small business owner. They offer a free trial period, so give it a whirl!
A 30 minute phone call with Ursula on March 9th forever changed the course of my business. I remember the date March 9th because that is the day Ursula challenged me to $5k in sales that month when I had been averaging about $1500. In my head I swore and was thinking “I don’t even have a full month to do this – it’s already the 9th.” I took the challenge on armed with some new ideas from the call to meet my $5k goal and rocked it the rest of the month. I closed the month with $4906 in sales without reducing hours at my full-time job. I was more than pleased! That was BEFORE Sales Camp!
AFTER Sales Camp – forever changed the course of my business – taking it to a whole new level. I never thought I would say “selling is easy and fun”, but I now say it, think it and believe that to be true.
If you are in business for yourself or another company and you say things like “I am not a salesperson”, “I don’t want to be like the used car salesperson”, or “I get nervous asking for the sale” then it’s time to step it up, do the thing you think you can’t do and sign up for Ursula’s Sales Camp. The only regret you’ll have – is that you didn’t sign up sooner!
If you like my website and logo, then give kudos to Rebecca! I made the decision to work with Rebecca and her team because she listened to me, understood my needs and had a plan to help me. During the time we worked together on my logo and website I appreciated her patience, guidance, and expertise. Creating a website is quite a process. Beyond all the pages, words, fonts, layout, design, etc. that there are to figure out, there are so many other technical things to link together. I don’t even really know what they are all called or how to do them – but I know I needed them and I am grateful Rebecca knows what she is doing and is good at it!
This is the organization I received my initial EFT Certification through. EFT Universe is a great resource to learn about tapping. The website is filled with articles and information and they offer a variety of training classes all over the world.
If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Certified EFT Practitioner, here are the steps on how to do it.
The Tapping Solution is one of the first places I took an EFT course to learn more about EFT and experience how it could help me. I was in Jessica Ortner’s class when she wrote the book “Weight Loss and Body Confidence”. I had a great experience with her class – I felt some major shifts happen and spent quite a bit of time tapping each day and week as I went through her courses. I also realized it would benefit me to work 1:1 with a tapping practitioner to clear out some of the stuff I wasn’t able to tap on myself. Taking this class with Jessica was a game changer for me – it was when I became truly interested in EFT…enough to taking things further and get some additional training on it. Eventually I became certified.
Mind & Body
Is a beautiful healing center in Woodbury, MN focusing on healing and strengthening the mind, body and spirit. The owner, Amanda, is a Personal Trainer, Doula, Mother and an Awesome Friend! She created the healing center to serve men, women and children in helping them find balance. In addition to Amanda helping people on journeys she has several practitioners at Blissful Balance that offer a variety of modalities geared to heal and strengthen. Since I’ve moved far away I’ve been enjoying Amanda’s online Commit to Fit class. It’s awesome to feel a part of the community and to be able to continue working out with Amanda!
I realize I may be biased since the owner of Finding Your Fiji is one of my Best Fabulous Friends, but Kim Julen is a Shift MASTER to say the least! She loves helping people find harmony in their head, hearts, and homes. I feel honored to know her and to work with her. She is so talented at helping people shift the energy in the homes as a Certified Feng Shui Consultant when she sees exactly how to help others – she lights up like a kid in a candy shop. She lights up because she is so excited to help people change their lives. She has helped me in both my home and my home office. Her guidance in my home resulted in significant improvements in my health as well as an overall joyous and energized feeling being in my home.
She is also an amazing Angel card reader. Over the years I have done several reading and must say that my absolute favorite was a 2 hour reading with Kim. We touched on many areas of my life and I left KNOWING so much more and feeling like I had a clear path to move forward.
Hay House is one of my favorite places to shop for inspirational and educational spiritual books, DVDs, CDs, classes, and more. When I was struggling financially, Hay House is one of the places I turned to in order to help me change my thoughts and change my life. They have a plethora of wonderful authors that teach and inspire. They have a fabulous shop filled with delightful products. They also offer I Can Do It weekend seminars. They are a retreat for your mind and spirit – a must do!
I fell in love with Lemongrass Spa products in the fall of 2015. I had just completed a 42-day cleanse and was looking for natural, organic, and plant-based products to put on my skin instead of the toxic and chemical-filled products I had been using. I tried a few of Lemongrass’ products and was thrilled with how well my sensitive skin and nose could handle them! I’ve since switched over all of my make-up and skincare products to Lemongrass Spa products, and I absolutely LOVE them!
I was shared my thrill and excitement about Lemongrass products so much that my friends wanted to purchase them too, so I decided to be an online Lemongrass Spa Consultant. What is an online Lemongrass Spa Consultant you ask? Something I made up! I am a consultant that sells online only (no in-home parties). I have an online Spa party once a month from the 1st – 15th on my website and share it on my Julie Jacky’s Lemongrass Spa Facebook group.
When I host an online party and meet the party minimum, I give away products as gifts to all those who purchased from the party.
Being an online Lemongrass Spa Consultant allows me to share my love of Lemongrass with you while staying focused on my passion of serving people on their financial journey. Let me know if you have any questions about the products! I’m happy to share with you whatever I can about them. When you join my FB group you’ll find info about the products and any specials going on.
In June 2014, I attended one of Hay House’s “I Can Do It” seminars. I had heard many of the authors on Hay House Radio and had purchased many of the books, CDs and DVDs on HayHouse.com. I was excited to see them, hear them, and be in their presence. I looked up to them. I aspired to be like then. I was inspired by them and made changes in my life because of them.
Except Nancy. I hadn’t heard Nancy’s story, and had no idea what she would have to say. But I figured Hay House put her on stage at “I Can Do It” so it must be good. I sat in my seat and listened to her while she was sharing her story from stage, and all of the sudden I felt super connected to her and her message. To me, she felt like a regular person that had a job and was simultaneously building her own business. I felt like I could learn from her. I bought her book (the only book I purchased during the seminar) and read it cover to cover on the plane ride home. As soon as I got home I signed up for her Jump group coaching program.
Dave Ramsey is one of my role models and mentors. I have learned so much from him over the past few years and continue to do so. The knowledge and information that he shares has helped me change my life for the WAY BETTER in so many ways. Financially for sure, and also professionally and spiritually. I am so grateful for all of his work.
My introduction to Dave started with his Financial Peace University 9-week class. I took FPU and learned to change my behavior with money. I gained a better understanding of mortgages and insurance, and after taking that class I felt like I had a financial step-by-step plan for my future.
A year later, I felt led to coordinate a FPU course. I signed up to coordinate it, had 6 participants, and enjoyed helping people on their journey with money. In fact I enjoyed it so much that I took Dave Ramsey’s Financial Coach Master Series program.
In 2015, Dave’s organization rolled out EveryDollar. It is a budgeting system I use because it’s super easy to create and personalize my budget in a few minutes. Plus it’s free. Check it out.
I still listen to Dave’s podcast every week. I continue to learn and be inspired by him. I’m so grateful for the impact Dave and his organization have had in my life.
