Hey there! I’m Alison.

Are you wondering when you’ll finally feel good about where you are?

Are you struggling to feel positive or make progress in your personal or professional life?

Do you sometimes use humor when talking about heavy topics?

If so…you’re in the right place!

My mission is to help women create happiness through simple advice and soulful inspiration. 

There is no pressure to get it perfect… Because self improvement is awkward for everyone! 

I think you’ll find my approach a fresh breath of air. 

Many struggle with finding happiness and control over their lives.

At Alison’s Notebook, I write about the awkward art of self improvement. We provide practical advice for the feeling of overwhelm and lack of confidence that many people experience.

There is no pressure to be perfect…because self improvement is awkward for everyone!

I think you’ll find my approach a breath of fresh air, and I’d love to partner with you.

Embracing Awkward

Despite some introverted tendencies, I’ve always been pretty transparent about my personal experiences. Over time, I learned that while sometimes things get awkward when you share your personal journey—and I came to realize how many people benefited from hearing those experiences. I personally love seeing and hearing people’s stories and what they learned.

I love learning about personal development, but more than that: I love the connection created when we share our stories.

And its awkward!

But we have so much to gain from #EmbracingAwkward. Laughter, tears, growth, grief, joy, excitement. I love it all. I am HERE for it! And I’m guessing you are too.

The Community

The Alison’s Notebook community is a friendly and supportive hive. If you are looking for guides on self-care, product reviews related to happiness, simple/relatable fashion and beauty, self-care and body positivity, or just entertaining posts…you’ve come to the right place 🙂

I try not to give any fluffy advice, I simply share my experiences.

I’m a silly girl with an old soul. My hair says, “Yeah, I’m up for whatever,” but my glasses say, “Only if I’m home by 10”.

Here are some facts about me…

I’m from New Jersey, but I grew up mostly in Houston, TX with my identical twin sister and brother.

I work really hard at everything I try, and I love learning new things and then teaching others.

My dad left my mom when I was 14, and while my relationship with him was repaired over time, his unexpected death in my twenties changed the course of my life when I finally gave myself permission to follow my intuition and stop people-pleasing.

I have a degree in “Christian Leadership,” from a black Bible College, but became agnostic after graduating.

I’m a marketing coach and I love real estate.
