5 Things: My Favorite Things Edition (Guest Post)

It's Nicole LaBonde week here at the ajennda! Fabulous, right? You may have seen her "What I Learned From Ballet" post earlier this week. Now check out Nicole's "5 Things":

1. Coconut Oil- I might use this too much- in my oatmeal and coffee, in my hair, for baking, for sunscreen…

2. Isagenix- this nutritional company changed my life. Literally. Since using their products (vegan protein shakes and nutritional cleansing), I’ve added lean muscle and finally have the definition I was wishing my lanky dancer body had. My energy is through the roof. And I’m making some extra cash. All wins. And, I do truly use the products everyday. I love them. Not just because I sell them!

3. Pilates- also changed my life. Pilates really saved my back from a painful scoliosis. I recommend it for any dancer looking to: rehab an injury, gain strength without bulk, or improve your alignment. Look for a certified, qualified instructor, not someone who got their cert in a weekend. I recommend Romana’s Pilates instructors.

4. Jeffrey Combs/More Heart than Talent- these podcasts are available every Wednesday. Jeffrey is an amazing speaker and coach, and regularly kicks my butt. If you need some mindset work- to deal with rejection, anxiety, learning to sell, etc.- this is your guy.

5. Hootsuite.com- if you have more than 1 Twitter account, you need this. I have my personal (@niclabonde), plus 2 business accounts (@cabarretfit and @publicpersonaco). I use Hootsuite to schedule tweets. I have some scheduled out through the end of the year! This is a great way to make sure you don’t forget to share your content! Tip- do NOT use it for Facebook. It will negatively affect your Edgerank and your posts will be hidden.
