A peaceful, successful life is yours.

You’re living your dream life – the one you imagined when you were a kid – and it’s a long, healthy, happy one.

You’re in control of your day. You’re in control of your time. You’re in control of your life.

There’s absolutely no question who’s in charge.

(You. It’s you. You’re a legend.)

Your family helps you clean the house.
Look, your partner is dusting and vacuuming!

You plan and prepare a healthy and nutritious kid-friendly dinner
every night like a Michelin chef – and no one complains, “Broccoli? Again?!”

Your kids play quietly and politely share toys. They don’t argue whose turn it is to use the iPad,
and you don’t even have to tell them screen time’s up.

You get in some form of movement every day – whether it’s a relaxing yoga session or a long run to clear
your head. You dropped that baby weight no problem, and you wear mom jeans ironically.

You not only shower every day, but you use the good shampoo, you have time to blow-dry your hair, and you wear
“adult” clothes you’re not embarrassed to be seen wearing in public.

You take good care of yourself. You drink 8 glasses of water a day, you do your monthly self-breast exams, and you even
visit your dermatologist for a yearly skin cancer screening. (Okay, fine, and maybe a little Botox…)

Whatever you want, you’re doing it – with ease, with grace.

Total bliss. 

Except…you’re still the primary caregiver, which really means you’re the primary caretaker, cook, housekeeper, playmate, dog walker, teacher, accountant, disciplinarian, chauffeur…AND you’re holding down a full-time job and you’re an active and productive member of clubs, groups, and organizations. 

(That’s commendable, but your kid who can’t find his shin guards for the 19th time this week doesn’t give a crap.)

It’s not working. And it’s definitely not working for you.

Even though our “modern” society wants you to do it all.

Even though our “advanced” society flings all kinds of “hacks” and “apps” and “tech-y gadgets” that promise THE ANSWER at you.

You simply can’t (and maybe even *gasp* don’t want to!) find time to do everything and be everything to everyone. Not when you’re not getting enough sleep and you’re distracted by a miles-long, never-ending to-do list.

There’s just not enough time to get it all done.

And you can’t hope or wish or dream your way to the peaceful, successful life you crave.
(That’s basically bullshit and takes away your power.)

You can’t meditate or journal your way to peace and success.
(That’s great for your mental health but doesn’t necessarily translate into tons of action.)

You can’t keep pretending that if you just lose those last 12 pounds,
you’ll feel better about yourself and finally be able to move forward.
(That’s delaying your happiness, and you deserve to live your dreams NOW.)

But you can make a plan.

Is it super sexy? Not really, unless worksheets, checklists, and an occasional spreadsheet turns you on. Does it work? 

Oh heck, yes.



simple shortcuts to peace
a step-by-step framework for life & time management


Inside this self-paced course packed with quick wins and proven strategies, you’ll learn how to structure your day-to-day life so it’s peaceful,easy, and joyful. 

Here’s what you get:

  • 6 modules broken up into bite-sized videos you can watch weekly, monthly, or binge, like it’s Schitt’s Creek
  • 2 one-on-one coaching calls with me (redeemable whenever) where we’ll map out your “master plan” so you know exactly how to overcome struggles or hurdles that threaten your peace (like overflowing toilets and overbearing mother-in-law pop-ins)
  • A group coaching call once a month where you can ask anything and meet other like-minded students
  • A 6-Week Jump Start to Health so you can get your health in check…forever
  • Immediate access to all the ebooks and worksheets in the online store and vault (more than 40 downloadable resources!) so you can finally live the life you’ve always wanted – one where you feel calm, centered, and in control.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How to segment your days into mini chunks and exactly how (and why!) to schedule every component of your life – me time, kids’ endless extracurricular activities, and even date night with your partner
  • How to delegate:  No, YOU don’t have to do all the things all the time. It’s okay to protect your boundaries and it’s okay to ask for help. Also? 2 year olds are perfectly capable of cleaning up after themselves. Learn valuable techniques I learned while running preschool centers for homeless children.
  • The exact words to use anytime you need to get out of a pointless meeting, class, or event (hint: it does NOT include the word “sorry”)
  • How to actually prioritize your health every day, even when your kid is home sick for the third time this month and the roof just sprung a giant leak
  • How to create a realistic budget (even if you’re math-averse!) – and the one thing you can’t overlook
  • The P.R.O.M. method for decluttering your home, plus the seven chores that really need to be done daily and the ones you can save for spring cleaning or ask housekeepers to do
  • How to keep your home company-ready, even when every day is jam packed with field trips and Zoom calls and you barely have five minutes to load the dishwasher so your partner’s favorite coffee mug is clean in the morning
  • The most important relationship of all (spoiler alert: it’s not your marriage…) and how to nourish it – and the four other major relationships in your life
  • Proper communication techniques – see ya, cold shoulder and arguments that devolve into finger pointing and name calling (because that’s mature)
  • How to finally feel happy, content, at peace, and proud of yourself when you crawl into bed each and every night

Hi, I’m Stephanie!

I’m a NYT best-selling author, a master life coach, a wife, and a mom to three daughters – and one Basset hound named Sheldon. I’ve been featured on Good Morning America, Rachael Ray, Oprah.com, Real Simple, Prevention, and the New York Post as a Slow Living expert, and am the host of the Slow Living Podcast.  I teach busy people, like working moms and caretakers, how to get their “have tos” over and done with so they can focus more energy on their “want tos.” My books and websites have reached millions of people around the world and helped them design put-together, calm, peaceful lives. Your dreams might be different from mine (I wanted to stay home with my kids), but my time management techniques are based on cognitive behavior and psychology research and loads of trial and error – and I can’t wait to share them with you so you can live a long, happy, healthy, and peaceful life.

What People are Saying

“…coaching with Stephanie O’Dea is absolutely worth every moment. She is like talking to a good friend, but a good friend that also knows how to gently nudge and point you in the right direction.“

“I feel like Steph has a true sense of balance in her life, and is not just another coach selling her take on how to cram more in your day and/or hustle your way to success. She is down-to-earth and real in her approaches, and they work very well for me in my stay-at-home/work-from/home mom life.“

“Very simply I would say that Steph gently pointed out barriers that I put into my own way and offered tools so I could address and remove them.”

“The best part of my coaching experience is really truly not feeling alone anymore. Talking to Steph, a person that IS a mom, that IS running a business and being a mom, is priceless. It was also really valuable to see myself through another’s eyes, to consider perspectives I might not have otherwise.”
