Resources

As you will notice below, I am very comfortable in front of a book and a computer!  I spend the majority of my free time researching and reading.  These are books/videos/products/sites I have personally read, listened to, watched, or used.  If it isn’t on this page it is because I haven’t read it…yet.  Some of these resources may link to Amazon and help to support HealthCoachPenny.com   Also, you will find other sites I visit on a regular basis so if you want to join me on my quest to get a Ph.D. in Google then check them out!
