Often when I need to get re-inspired in my business,
I think back to the little Reese I was when
I started YES SUPPLY.
She was the girl who was SO ready for a change.
I felt stuck and trapped in my life. I felt stuck with my finances, stuck with a ceiling for how creative I was allowed to be, and that I was unable to be my true self.
I would look around me and just see more miserable people stuck in the same kinds of jobs, and life as me. And all the conversations I heard centered around being stuck and unsatisfied.
I remember PLEADING to God and the universe saying “God! I am READY to do the work, I am WILLING to do what it takes! Please tell me what I have to do to escape this and create a better life and I’ll do it, and I’ll help others do the same!”
And the universe answered my prayers.
Step by step, I began to have the right courses, business coaches, teachers, leaders, and coaches show up before me, and it was my job to recognize the sign that was given to me and do the work.
Of course, it’s not that everything has been a breeze since I started. I had a lot of ups and a lot of downs. A lot of celebrations…but a lot of sadness too.
I’ve made a lot of mistakes, and I figured them out. I signed up for a ton of things, programs, software, and tools that didn’t work for me, which shone a light clearer on exactly what does work for me.
And I’m SO excited to be sharing some of the best of the best tools and resources that have worked for me so that you can smooth sail to the business you want to create, have the financial resources you dream of, and take the guesswork out of picking what tools work for you.
One thing that’s SUPER important to remember though, is that tools and software are all great, but they are NOT the foundation. Mindset is the foundation. Ensure to spend time on YOU and make sure you feel aligned, and amazing, before taking action, and your results will be that much better!
*This is going to be a living and breathing document! I’ll keep coming back and editing to add in my favorite tools and resources that work for me. If there’s anything else you want to know, ask in the comments 🙂

This article includes affiliate links and amazon affiliate links! We may receive a small fee when you sign up for any of these products. I’m getting success the tools I am suggesting in this blog for a successful business coach.
Here are some of my favorite things that make my life better. They are things that I use in my every day to raise my vibe, feel like I bringing a little luxe touch into my day, or make my routines easier:
Le Labo candles
Best Scents: Verveine: https://www.lelabofragrances.ca/verveine-32.html
Santal(This is also the scent of my signature daily perfume): https://www.lelabofragrances.ca/santal-26.html
Rebecca Campbell Oracle Cards: https://www.yessupply.co/Oracle_cards
Oracle cards are a great way to get intuitive guidance from the universe. Every time I pull from this deck for myself, or for my clients, the guidance we get is WILD. It’s like the universe comes down and taps you on the shoulder to know what to do next, and nudges you to follow your intuition. They allow you to really listen to the whispers in your soul
Dynasty Plant Store Toronto. http://www.dynastytoronto.com/
If you’re not in Toronto, this might not work for you, but if you are, I love walking into this jungle of a store. The people who work there are kind and knowledgeable. I bought my fiddle leaf plants there and they really raise the vibe for my workspace.
Crystals: https://www.stonebridgeimports.com/ (Also in Canada)
I love having crystals in my space to raise the vibration and make it feel amazing. I had wanted a giant Amethyst Cathedral forever, and when I got my office, I know it was meant to be mine! I also have a giant Clear Quartz as a centerpiece for my table.
I love having natural elements in my space! It livens everything up, even when I’m living in the middle of a busy city. And even when the weather isn’t great, my office and home working space is like my little oasis away from all the busy-ness.
Filming + YouTube Tools
My business is run based on the content that I put out on Youtube Tools. Everything that serves and helps the people I want to help comes in either word or video format. So, of COURSE, I need to make sure I have a set up that I love. I used to have a mirrorless camera, but I found it so hard to get the sound set up properly, and it was cumbersome to get the SD card out of it. Little things, but they added friction to my day. Now I’ve upgraded to a DSLR and I love it for filming videos and filming my testimonials after my live events too. Having the right filming and youtube tools is key for putting out content your in love with!
Youtube Keyword + Naming Research: https://www.tubebuddy.com/yessupply
Let’s be honest, putting together a video for youtube can take a lot of time, and planning to make sure it’s a hit. So you want to make sure you’re naming it properly. Tube Buddy is one of my top tools for doing research and seeing what works on youtube!
Canon Camera: https://www.yessupply.co/canon_camera
The camera I use now is a Canon EOS 90D DSLR Camera Body (Here’s one that comes with Bonuses + a Travel Bundle) It is so easy to use, adjust for the light I’m working in, and I love the easy access to the memory card so it’s easy to get work done in my workflow.
Lavalier Mic: https://www.yessupply.co/lavalier_mic
Lavalier mics are SO good for filming high quality sound in your videos. These make a huge difference. Sound is essential so I decided to splurge on this exact style of the Sennheiser Wireless Microphone System.
If you know me, you know I love doing live streams. I’ve gone through a few webcams, and this one is the clearest I’ve found so far. I’ve owned the Logitech BRIO – Ultra HD Webcam for Video Conferencing, Recording, and Streaming, and bought them for my team too! People always ask me how my Live Streams are so clear, and this is my secret weapon!
Video Editing Team: If you want to hire out for video editing, I used to work with www.davamarketing.com. You can use the code REESE for 15% off your first month with them.
I use a Macbook Pro from Apple
Ergonomic keyboard: https://www.yessupply.co/ergonomic_keyword
When I’m at my office and sat at my desk, I try to protect my wrists and hands! I have had so much pain from typing all day and it made me actually avoid working because it hurt. So, I got this keyboard and it helped me so much!
It has a cushion rest for your wrist, and a natural arc for your hands, so even if my wrists hurt with other keyboards, when I switch to this one, I can get so much done.
Apps I use for Instagram:
VSCO Cam: yessupply.co/vsco
Ever since I got started on Instagram a few years ago, I’ve been a loyal user of VSCO. I use it to apply filters on my photos AND videos and it makes such a huge difference. People ask if Im taking professional photos, but it’s really just the filters- a lot of the time it’s just my husband taking the photos lol.
Yeti Mic: https://www.yessupply.co/yeti-mic
I use this mic to sound crystal clear when I’m filming live streams, audio tracks for clients, and speaking on podcast interviews!
Smarter Queue: https://smarterqueue.com/yessupply
To schedule my content across different social media platforms to go out at the same time, I use Smarterqueue. You can use it for scheduling your promotions, and quotable on Facebook, Facebook Groups, LinkedIn, Pinterest and scheduling to Instagram all at the same time. It’s a huge time saver for us!
App I use for Pinterest Growth:
Tailwind has been AMAZING for my Pinterest growth. We typically have over 2 Million impressions a month on Pinterest and this app is a huge help for that.
I also have a Tailwind tribe based around Coaching, click here to get an invite <3 https://www.tailwindapp.com/tribe/join?h=yO3YH99ypHNvNz
PS: If you sign up with my Tailwind link, you’ll not only get an invite to my tribe 😉 you’ll also get a free month of Tailwind!
Creative Market: www.creativemarket.com
I love Creative Market to find graphics and templates for making things look pretty. And they give away 6 free goods every week. That’s how they got me.
You can find slide deck templates, Instagram templates, TONs of fonts, and more.
Asana is an online project management tool my team uses. If it wasn’t for this, we would forget to do SO many things! We can use this to keep track of our own tasks and see what everyone else is up to so we can work together!
5 second journal: Amazon Link
OMG, this journal was a GAME changer for a me and because I used it so often, it was a huge contributor to keeping my brain organized and helping me make over a Million Dollars. I can’t thank Mel Robbins enough for creating this master piece of a journal for my mind. I am typically disorganized but this helped me get all my ducks in a row.
Automating My Sales System
When I thought about how I wanted to run my business, I realized that I wanted to have some time to not focus on launching, but create a sales system that works for me around the clock, so I created a system with a Masterclass that runs all the time, people can watch on their own schedule, and learn more about signing up for my certification program!
The main tools I use are:
Webinar Platform: https://yessupply.krtra.com/t/tHjQsbg7hkCp < Use this link for a free 14 day trial (Affiliate Link)
If you want to create a sales system that sells without you needing to be there, using a webinar has worked wonders for me and is a huge reason why I made over a million dollars in my business. By taking note of what my ideal client was looking for, turning those teaching into a really informative and helpful webinar, and then selling my offer at the end of it, it’s helped me put my sales on auto-pilot. I’ve sold my $3000 program while Im:
● On a beach
● On a plane
● Out with friends
● Going on a date with my hubby
And pretty much any type of circumstance you can think of.
One of my highest values in life is freedom and the ability to do what I want when I want, and automating the sales in my business has worked wonders for me.
Creating Countdown Timers: yessupply.co/df
This tools helps me create countdown timers that show up in my emails and on my sales page. I love their customer service and everything about their team so I’m happy to support their work and I know you’ll love working with them
Website hosting: www.siteground.com
I LOVE SiteGround for website hosting. When I started my business, I was actually with another hosting company, and my website was crashing almost every day. The old hosting company was trying to blame it on me.
Luckily, I found SiteGround, and since then, I have had the MOST RELIABLE hosting experience. They have 24-hour support and their team really cares and has gone above and beyond on so many occasions to help me out. They also back up your site every 24 hours, so if you REALLY mess something up, you can feel secure that most things can be saved!
My membership site software: http://go.wishlistproducts.com/?p=yessupply
The membership site software I use is called Wishlist Member. To be honest, if I were to start again, this software probs wouldn’t be my number #1 choice. In the past, the support team was slow to get back to me, with breakdowns, and connections to the important integrations I need to run my business (although lately, they have been pretty good)
I haven’t seen a lot of really impressive upgrades, but its a very accessible price, and it does seem to work for basic membership and content protection so give it a try and see if it’s right for you.
Creating Sales pages and landing pages on the cheap: leadpages.pxf.io/az35M
If you don’t want to go through all the work of launching a website just yet, but you still want to have that first successful launch, I LOVE leadpages.
All you need is a gorgeous leadpages landing page and offer page to get your work into the world. If you’re not ready to go through with a whole website right now, I recommend leadpages to help you get the ball rolling!
Email Automation: Active Campaign < Affiliate Link
With the crazy unpredictable algorithms, there’s never been a more important time to use email to your advantage. I’ve tried a lot of email services and Activecampaign is the best for sure. There are SO many functions and features and they are launching more all the time, I would definitely sign up and give them a try to see if the active campaign works for you. Especially if you want to get more advanced with your marketing!
I use this to connect to my audience through emailing, grow my email list, share my freebies and updates with my current students and clients in the YES SUPPLY METHOD and more. It also integrates with Facebook for running your ads, and can help you see which pages people are going to on your website so you can send them emails specifically for what they are searching for on your site!
This email automation software has been a HUGE reason why I have been able to grow my business to $1M+ and they are reliable, have good support and assistance with someone who will actually walk you through how to use your account, and they are constantly adding new features to help me connect with my audience better and better, launch new products, and make sales!
Time Doctor: www.timedoctor.com
If you’re hiring contractors, want to track the time it takes you to do something, or have someone on your team who you want to track time, the tool I use is Time Doctor!
I actually use this a lot if I want to know how long something takes me. When I’m filming content for a new project I like to know how long it takes me.
Goal Setting Cards + Business Cards: www.moo.com
Moo has really great finishes for business cards, and so many options and sizes. We use these for life coach business cards and sending goal setting cards to our students to manifest faster.
Team Emails and Projects: https://goo.gl/pwTfGc
To work with my team, and give them their own unique emails, and also have space to store all our files in the cloud, and work together on documents, we use Google Suite Apps.
Motivation and Growth
Bob Proctor Events
Heading to a Bob Proctor Event shifted my mindset and my vibration. I did this right before I made my first Million Dollars, and I know what I learned there helped! Bob Proctor is literally a living legend around spirituality, creating abundance, and having the right mindset for growth.
The next live event I know of is Science of Getting Rich, in May, and it’s going to be epic.

Energy & My Nutrition
Celery juice: https://www.yessupply.co/x3ke
When I started juicing celery in the morning, I had more energy to do my 8 hour day teaching and speaking events, and more clarity of thinking! This book has so much info on it.
This is how I make my daily Celery Juice with Organic Celery from my local organic garage.
Iron Supplement: https://www.yessupply.co/aeuw
I always used to wake up feeling really tired and groggy. I would really want to hop out of bed and get shit done, but I would wake up with this brain fog that made me keep wanting to press snooze… and press snooze again…and then again.
Even when I got enough sleep, I felt tired, and it was frustrating for me because all I wanted to do was hop out of bed with energy and work on building my dreams and helping people!
This all changed when I started taking this Iron supplement syrup. What I like about it is it is not just pure Iron (which apparently can be tough on your system). It is a mix of Iron, and B vitamins and other natural herbs which are said to process well in your system. I do a minimum of 10 ml a day, and within a couple of days I already felt more energized. Now it’s been about 2 weeks since I began and I honestly feel more energized now than I did before my pregnancy! Where has this been all my life!
*Only make changes to your diet after speaking to a licensed medical professional. These are not recommendations, simply what has worked for me*
Hydration is also huge when it comes to being energized, so I can clearly see and feel that when I’m staying hydrated through the day (I love drinking Lemon water and Vitamin C also is said to help Iron absorb into the body) and so when I take this and drink lots of water I am literally on top of the world and am so much more energized.
One thing I am aware of is there can be lots of things we don’t know about that go into our water like Lead, Mercury and even other people’s dissolved prescriptions (yuck!) So when I’m at home, I also use this filtration system to filter out all the yucky stuff from water.
Watch the Videos:
I want to increase my Intuition, apparently, Fluoride calcifies your pineal gland which helps you connect to a higher power, so I love drinking from my Zero Water filter. I bought one for my mom and grandma too. 🙂
I hope this list helped you so much, I will keep adding to it as I get more ideas, and tools that helped me grow my business to over a Million Dollars, and keep my energy and spirit game strong.
If you want to learn even more from me, I encourage you to join me inside the YES SUPPLY METHOD Certification program where I teach you 5 life-changing modalities for improving your mindset, focus and becoming an empowering leader in your life.

I used to have a mirrorless camera, but I found it so hard to get the sound set up properly, and it was cumbersome to get the SD card out of it.
