Here’s the Thing:
You Deserve to Live a Long, Healthy, Happy, Life.
A life that is Full of Peace.
The Game of Life — and Your Role.
Even though we are in Modern Times and not some prehistoric timewarp, the role of “primary caregiver” has remained virtually unchanged since the beginning of time.
It’s really hard to find the time for self-love and self-care when you continue to be the primary:
ALONG with being an active and productive member at work, in clubs, groups, and organizations within the community & society.
Even in today’s advanced Societal Age with “hacks” and “apps” and “techy gadgets” — there simply isn’t enough THERE there to get it all done.
I Am You.
I used to have the very best intentions but not the execution. Sure, I slapped on a smile and went through the motions, but inside I knew the truth — I was holding my breath and just trying to get through the day.
I didn’t want to be this person any more. I wanted, I needed to feel like I was in charge and in control of my days, rather than just simply reacting to what was thrown at me.
Which was a lot.
How could I have time for monthly self-breast exams when I was supposed to dust and vacuum each week, figure out a healthy & nutritious (not to mention kid-friendly) dinner each night, change diapers every hour on the hour, nurse on demand, and referee an argument every 5-10 minutes?
How could I possibly find time to lose the baby weight and exercise when I couldn’t even squeeze in a regular shower?
How could I drink 8 glasses of water when I couldn’t ever use the restroom without a kid on my lap?
How could I function at work and fulfill my obligations when I hardly got any sleep and my mind was on all the stuff I needed to accomplish at home?
I Needed Help.
I needed, I craved:
- some sort of system that laid everything out for me
- a step-by-step approach that reminded me to make dentist appointments for everyone in the family every six months
- a planner to help with the daily, weekly, and monthly chores so I didn’t forget anything
- a way to get regular exercise without feeling guilty
- a group of friends who understood me. All of me.
- a guide to setting up our finances so nothing ever fell through the cracks and I could automatically save for college accounts and retirement
- a pat on the back and a friendly nudge to take a long bath and take the time to shave my legs properly
So I Got to Work.
I have developed a step-by-step system to create the type of tranquility you are craving in your life. It took hundreds of phone calls and dozens and dozens of coaching sessions and group consults to realize that we are all trying to find the elusive feeling of “PEACE” the wrong way.
We are trying to meditate our way to Peace.
Journal our way to Peace.
or we think,
“If only I lost these final 12 pounds, I’d feel better about myself and finally have Peace”
The problem is, that this other stuff doesn’t work in the long run. And that is because Peace doesn’t come from the top down. You can’t hope or wish or dream or pray your way to a peaceful life if the bottom part of your pyramid (your life) is in shambles.
There are 6 Lessons:
Learn how to segment your day into bite-sized chunks and how to (and why you should!) schedule all of the different components of your life.
You will learn what it means to
- pay yourself first
- create a daily master plan routine (which is different than a To Do List)
- set goals you actually want to keep
- change your habits to reflect your wishes/dreams
You will also learn exactly how and when you should delegate and the exact words to use whenever you want to get out of a non-essential meeting, class, or event.
No longer will your health take a back seat to the rest of the stuff that is happening in your busy life. You will learn that there are 5 essential components to your health and why each and every one needs to be acted upon daily.
- You can not function as a productive person if you do not have a handle on your own physical, mental, social, and hormonal well-being.
- This lesson also contains a 6-Week Jump Start to Health bonus plan to get your Health in Check forever.
Here you will learn how to budget (once and for all!) for yourself and your household and why planning for your future retirement is the most important thing you can ever do for yourself or your family.
We will also cover:
- getting out of debt
- living beneath your means
- why “wishing” for money or relying on “attracting” money isn’t a retirement plan!
Part of being a full-fledged grown-up s understanding what is coming into and going out of your bank accounts. This is doable for everyone, even if math isn’t your friend!
Learn exactly what chores need to be done each and every day (the Daily 7), what the most efficient way to de-clutter your home is (P.R.O.M.), and what needs to be cleaned and tended to on a seasonal basis.
- kid chores
- spouse chores
- when and if to bring in a cleaning crew or utilize housekeepers
- age-appropriate and developmentally appropriate chores
- seasonal chores
We will also learn the one chore you should do when you’re really short on time to keep your home always company-ready.
There are 5 major relationships in your life — and you need to handle each of them differently.
Here we will work together to fix and heal past wounds and learn to move forward. We will also learn proper communication techniques to use in each our different relationships and uncover how to cultivate, grow, and nourish the Number One Relationship of them all:
the relationship you have with yourself.
This is the final component of your six-part training, and all of the other lessons feed directly into it. You deserve to feel happy, content, and at peace each night when you crawl into bed.
This is real life, not a magazine — but it is absolutely possible to feel lighthearted and blissful, even when managing a busy schedule and all of your day-to-day activities.
Inside the course you will have instant access to all of the trainings and worksheets.
You can go slow, week-by-week, or month-by-month, or you can binge-watch all of the videos right away.
There is a private facebook group for all members where you can meet like-minded people who are also on the journey to find peace and tranquility and composure and structure in their busy lives.
Within this facebook group you will be able to have group coaching calls and trainings with me on a weekly basis.
You will have a one-time coaching call with me that you can redeem at any time. Within this call, we can work together to map out your “master plan” or work together to overcome any struggles or hurdles you may be grappling with.
Simple Shortcuts to Peace is a one-time fee of $550.
