Description

Have your birthday's been disappointing in the past?

Some of the worst days of my life have happened on my birthday.

  • I have had people close to me forget it was my birthday - repeatedly;
  • I have had a series of bad experiences year after year where family didn't celebrate my birthday in ways that were enjoyable to me
  • I have felt a ton of disappointment and sadness on my birthday instead of feeling celebratory and happy

If you have had less-than-happy birthdays in the past, I invite you to take this course and design the ultimate birthday experience.

This course is not about designing a birthday party.

It is about:

  • Designing a day that helps you feel the emotions you desire most
  • Spending your day doing things that bring you joy
  • Putting together a meaningful gift list
  • Celebrating your day and the year that follows with purpose

I use the free software Trello to teach this course and I show you how you can create a similar planning system on your own.

Throughout the course you will see my actual birthday planning board. This is not a random example but a truly honest board with my real plans.

With this course you can design a birthday that meets your expectations for an amazing day. You won't be disappointed.

I just finished creating a brand new course for you. If you have heard the buzz about the best selling book - The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo - you will love this course.

If you have read the book or not, this course will help you finally clear away clutter from your home.

I read this book a few months ago and have since cleared away dozens of bags of clothes and trash. In the past I have read all kinds of organizing books but nothing really stuck with me. I mostly just shifted stuff from one place to another.

The KonMarie method really works like nothing else that I've tried!!!

Come try it for yourself. In the course, Finally a Clutter-Free Home, you will be guided through the KonMarie Method and you will also learn my tips and tricks as I implemented the method myself.

Plus you will get a free copy of my Trello planning board that will help you remember all the tips shared in the course, while helping you to plan your own decluttering project.

Join the course now for the special student rate of just $9.

BONUS - Just Released based on the Hot Best Selling Book
