The life-changing part was really life-changing

I don’t know quite how to say this so I’ll come right out and say it…

I’m closing down my business.

The first question everyone might have is why?

There are three reasons:

  1. I’ve felt for a while like I need to let go of this, like this is no longer God’s very best for me
  2. The time commitment no longer makes sense considering what this yields finan.cially
  3. After I read the Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, I literally ask myself this question all the time, “does this spark joy” and truthfully, most of it no longer sparks joy.

If I seem blase about this (after 10 years online, and 13 and a half writing a newsletter/ running workshops and coaching), let me assure you I’m not. I went back and forth on this for a long time.

My husband and a few close friends have been praying too.

In fact, one of the biggest things holding me back was this question that I needed clear in my mind before making decisions:

If I’m not this time management speaker and coach, then who am I? What, then, is my identity?

My friend, Beth, reminded me that I’m still the same person and that was probably my ego talking.

True.

However, I had a “moment” in church and God slowly dropped this into my heart – my mission and purpose have not changed at all.

In fact, I still have the same God-given passion which is to motivate and inspire people to reach their goals and live their lives to the full.

I’ve had various expressions of this passion for years and years, and I’m looking forward to the next way I can express this in my life. Even if I don’t have a clue right now.

This is the scripture I’ve been given…

John 12:24

I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels–a plentiful harvest of new lives.

So exactly what does this mean?

1. No more coaching, no more organising, no more selling my online courses and products, no more speaking, except for the 5 love languages for now. That’s very scary because I’ve created over 20 different courses/ products/ books over the years!

2. For now, I will continue to blog, perhaps on a less frequent basis, and I’ll write a chatty email newsletter once a month (just like the good old days).

3. I’m also starting over with a new newsletter list.

I’m not importing any names – if you want to hear from me, please sign up here, otherwise … well, it’s been good chatting with you in your inbox 🙂

(I do have the 2016 Let’s Do This goals and intentions pack ready for you in your new welcome pack)

I’m also going to have a closing down sale until Christmas Eve

The seven products currently in my store are all 50% off if you use the code CLOSINGDOWN. Please have a look if you’ve ever wanted anything because they will be gone soon. You can also gift a product to a friend – just tell me in the notes to seller and I’ll send your friend a nice email 🙂 My wonderful assistant, Trisha, has already packaged all the content for me and it’s ready to send to you in one concise email.

Here is the link to the page where the discount code will work.

Just to be crystal clear, if you purchase an e-course, you’re going to get all the content immediately. You don’t have to wait for each week to go by.

I’m happy to “make arrangements” if anyone wants a payment plan.

It’s the strangest thing. It took me forever to make a decision but now that the decision’s been made, I want to get things wrapped up 😉

Last but definitely not least, I want to thank each and every one of you for reading, commenting, liking, buying my stuff, encouraging, supporting, chatting back, and just being a wonderful online community.

Here’s to the next phase… and keep reading the blog 🙂

Live intentionally
