I Would Never Hire You

I got to sit down and catch up with a long-time friend this past weekend.  A friend who has always been brutally honest with me.  A friend that I can count on to tell me how she sees it.  Even though at times what she says stings, I appreciate her candor and I appreciate her advice.

So when she asked how my business was doing, I told her straight out.  I said that lately, I had many prospective clients interested in working with me, telling me that they really need me and then......crickets.  It's like they fall off the face of the earth!

Then my friend said this - and I almost fell off my chair.  "I would never hire you - and you know I need you."

Huh?  Makes no sense.  So of course I asked her to expand on that statement.  And she did.  Here's what she said, "I know I can do it myself.  I know that I can clean up and get back on track with out your help."

So why doesn't she do it?  If she knows she can?  

She said she doesn't know.  She does know that …

Caring for Yourself During the Holidays

It's okay not to be okay during the holidays.  

The holidays are not a happy time of year for everyone.  Some look forward to just surviving the holidays and getting past January 1st.

To that end, I've made a list for you.  This list is full of ideas to help you take care of yourself during the holiday season.

Get a good night's sleep.If you don't want to send Christmas cards - don't.Eat healthfully.Exercise.Get outside.Do your nails.If you don't feel like decorating - don't.Take a relaxing bath.Listen to your favorite music.Be honest with your family/friends about how you are feeling.Watch your favorite movies.Avoid Facebook.Buy a bouquet of flowers.Plan a trip.Work on a project you've been wanting to get to.I also know that you are stoic.  You think to yourself, "I'll get through the holidays by going through the motions."  How about this - you need to take care of yourself first.  It is not selfish.  If you don't take care of yourself …
Being stuck is just no fun.  However, you can get some traction when you start making confident choices.

I know this to be true because I got to work with a very special client, Cathy.  Cathy lived alone in an apartment for many years.  She was retired and had a few friends, but none she would ever invite over.  Cathy was stuck - living in the same situation year after year.  She had no one to be accountable to.  She could keep everything she wanted, and then some.  She could be messy.  She could be chaotic and no one would call her on it.  Until one day she called herself on it.  Then she called me.  Cathy had a breakthrough that day and decided that she deserved better.  With Cathy, I used my proven method of decluttering, which is featured in my Jump-Start Your New Year program which kicks off on December 5th.   Cathy began making confident choices and got some major traction.  She is indeed living a better life now, having totally changed her life and relocating to beautiful Bozema…

Two is Always Better Than One

YOU WANT PEACE, FREEDOM AND JOY. You just don't have it right now because you have clutter. You are craving accountability. You want a plan so that you can move past this place. This place that has you stuck. For years in the very same situation. In my experience, two is always better than one in situations like this.
You need a partner. Someone that will carve out a plan with you. Someone that will show you the possibilities and opportunities in front of you. Someone that can hold you accountable. That someone is me - ALONG WITH an entire group! I created my group coaching program just for you. I want you to have the space and the time to learn new ways of decluttering and new behavior. That takes time - so i've made this a 12 month program. I want to answer your questions and walk you through the answers so you know exactly what to do. So I'm giving you two webinars a month on a topic of the groups choice. I want you to know that you are not in this alone. Not anymore. …

Something Is About To Shift. Can You Feel It?

There is a change in the air.  Something is about to shift.  

Is it the end of this year wrapping up and the beginning of another on the cusp of beginning? Is it the many possibilities and opportunities that are about to present themselves to you?

I'm not sure what it is - but it's causing me to be in full declutter mode.

Once you confidently conquer your clutter, the possibilities are endless.  What you once could not do, because of the clutter, you now can!

Like what, you ask?  

For most of my clients, they are now timely - as in being on time for appointments or completing something in a timely manner.

They can now easily locate what they need.  

They have freedom to travel, relax and spend quality time doing what they love doing.

Which brings me to this.  My popular Jump-Start Your New Year webinar series is back!

If you are stuck in the very same situation you found yourself in last year, then this program is for you!

Let me give you the run-down of the program:

Sentimental Items & The Beauty of Letting Go

The trees are about to show us the beauty of letting go.
I read this on Pinterest and I thought to myself, "Yes, it is beautiful to let things go."  But while it may be beautiful for me, many of you may not feel the same way.

I know this to be true because in my Facebook Group, Confidently Conquer Your Clutter, we've discussed how letting go, especially of sentimental items is difficult.

For some, it's because they feel like they are letting go of a memory.  For others, they feel like they are letting go of the person that reminds them of the item.  And then there are those of you, who have been given a gift, don't particularly love the gift but don't let it go because a loved one gave it to you.

So what are you to do?  In my experience, when I've wanted to let something go that had a memory attached to it, I've looked at what I would gain by letting go.  And at this point you may be thinking, GAINED?  What they heck is she talking about?

Let me give you a…
