PleaseNotes was started to allow women to make their passion their paycheque.

By building your confidence, helping you create clarity, and giving you the tools to stay focused and motivated, the sky (and not the glass ceiling) becomes the limit.

We make happiness, fulfillment and goal crushing exciting and fun.  You deserve to have your dreams and goals, and the easiest way to get you to where you want to go is by making sure you have the right tools to get you there, and practice with and know how to use them. Those three tools are;

A) Confidence    B) Clear Vision   C)  Creativity

By practicing with affirmations, motivational messaging and creativity, there is no limit to what you can do.

Also, when you get something for yourself, you're helping someone else.  10% of our net proceeds will always go to support people with whatever challenge they are facing.  These funds will go to different organizations over time.



Launched in Spring 2016, we started off with one product, the PleaseNote.  Within this stack of 3x3 inch sticky notes there are 50 different affirmations and motivational messages.  The great thing about these are that you can give and get these notes easily and use them at work and at home.  When you write down a task or a message on them, no matter how arduous it is, you feel happier doing it. PleaseNotes differ from similar products because they are really high quality and can be used for work and for play. 

A massive amount of people have been conditioned that life is struggle, or painful or difficult, and it's so untrue. Humans have the ability to change the way we feel about anything.  The more we practice being positive, we rewire our brains to be more positive, and start thinking positively easier. Like with any muscle, you have to exercise it to make it stronger. The happiness you feel when you read a PleaseNote  is created from within versus! When you start saying great things about yourself, you start to believe them, which causes people to begin seeing and feeling the reality of how amazing and special they are. The PleaseNotes are packaged in sets of 3 and includes one of each theme, Cheeky is bright pink, fun and sarcastic, Carefree is full of messages of joy and love, and Confident is all about clarity, creating and grounded action.

Growing on the PleaseNote, we have expanded into a full scale lifestyle brand.  The second product we released was The Journal, which launched in late 2016 with a Kickstarter Campaign located here.

This Journal is special for a couple different reasons. It holds multiple tools to help you move from confusion to clarity. The exercises cause you to use your left and right brain to create an alignment of the truth of who you really are. By re-downloading and re-doing the work book, you can keep active track of where you started and where you are going.

It’s filled with: 

  • Affirmations and quotes from athletes, politicians, musicians and overall amazing people on every page. Each quote, affirmation and message was chosen to be inspiring and relatable. 
  • The “Journal Juice” Workbook. A guide to take stock of your current life balance and priorities, what you actually want your life to look like, where you want to go in life, what’s important to you, what you love, and how you want to affect others, even after you're gone. It’s even got a place for you to do your gratitude work and a great place for you to make your own affirmations based on how you would like your life to be. Free to reprint and download as many times as you would like.
  • Creative space in the form of 20 sheets of dot paper. Perfect for sketching out designs, doodling, or imagining.
  • A great back pocket to keep what you want to keep safe close.
  • 100 gsm high quality thick recycled paper, about 1.75 times thicker than a standard sheet of printer paper to resist ink bleeding from fountain pens. 
  • 200 pages of goodness. 
  • A Elastic Pen Loop so your always prepared to get your writing on.
  • A Silky Ribbon to mark your place.

After The Journal, we release two other items created as continuous reminders of how amazing you are. They also come in 3 different  themes. Cheeky is bright pink, fun and sarcastic, Carefree is full of messages of joy and love, and Confident is all about clarity, creating and grounded action. The first is "Mirror Mirror" Mirror decals.  Great on any flat surface, and perfect on your mirror, these affirmations come in sets of 3 and the messages and colors match the theme they belong to.   There is also "Label of Love" dual sided water bottle labels.  Grounded in the fact the human body is 65-78% water, the energy and vibration of it is important. Referencing Dr. Masaru Emoto's water study, each label has a different quality or emotion you want to increase in your life, and the back has a matching affirmation that supercharges your water.



I have always struggled with my confidence and own sense of self, even though no-one around me would of thought so.  I got into the habit of attempting to be what I thought people needed, because I thought that was not only the way to have friends, it was also a survival technique. The big problem with that is I lost myself in the midst. I had gotten to this point in my life where I knew I had something important to give, and I was frustrated because I didn’t know what that was, or even how to find that out.  


So I took a risk.


I quit my job, and took time for me. I read, journaled, worked with affirmations and started listening to myself.  I started building up myself, and as a result, was able to value my own gifts and what I found exciting. What I loved was that light bulb moment, the “Aha” when people remember who they are, realize life could be different, and more importantly, that they had the power to create a life they love. One day I thought to myself, I wish I could put affirmations everywhere, that way I could constantly remind myself of who I really am, and that’s how PleaseNotes was born. 


PleaseNotes was created to empower women to really see how invaluable they are, and to use the gifts they have to create a life they truly love.
