“Stressed” and “Overwhelmed” shouldn’t be the first words you use to describe your life. This intensive, 6-hour lifeplan course provides you with a customized, step-by-step goal-setting guide to set your dreams in motion. Attendees are taught to free themselves of clutter – both spiritually and materially — by using a proven process to liberate themselves from life obstacles, whether it be relationships, activities that no longer serve your greater good, or habits that hinder your personal growth. Following this inner and outer “house-cleaning,” we’ll develop a surmountable format leading to lifelong goals and dreams.
In this workshop, you will experience:
- Individual and group exercises to assess clutter “roadblocks” and emotional patterns that have made it difficult to part with burdensome possessions.
- How to pinpoint relationships and activities that are a drain on time and energy.
- Learning concrete steps, via our presentation and exercises, to begin the life process of removing the above distractions from their lives.
- The clarity to define and explore life goals and discover creative outlets.
- Accountability to own your situation and change it. No more excuses, no coddling.
- Learning to assess the baggage inside that keeps you attached to the baggage outside.
- The defining of friends, families and colleagues –- and who gets to be in your inner circle and how to avoid time-suck from those who encroach on you.
- How to pinpoint the things that are keeping you busy without a payoff. Learn how to delegate and remove things from the schedule that aren’t serving a higher purpose for you or your family.

“I knew she would be good—but I had no idea HOW good. Suellen’s ideas for organizing all the paper coming into our house and work (and the paper that wants to hang around us) was totally useful. Her presentation was clear, visual, and workable. Suellen is so fun to listen to and relate to. She is passionate about her subject and understands that you need to be patient and give people hope that they, too, can have order in their home and work environments. I’m starting this week to implement some of her ideas.” – Cheryl McIntosh, Lilburn, GA
