"You have taught me to believe in myself and to take things slowly, one step at a time, keep sight of my goals, both short term and long term.

Your coaching style was both nuturing and motivating, you seemed to intuitively know some days what I needed most. Your caring and understanding was so appreciated and it came from the heart."

-Holly C.

I would recommend the Simplicity Course as an easy, practical way to start simplifying one's life. I especially liked the segments on Tolerations, Wardrobe, and Office and Paperwork.

Each day focuses on only one task, which is helpful to people who feel overwhelmed by the complexities of modern life and hardly know where to begin downshifting.

-Joan, New York

Beth has an uncanny way of, "reading between the lines" to see a person's heart. I appreciate how genuine she is.

I have already begun implementing her suggestions, and am dumbstruck at how well they are working. I am feeling so much more secure, and feel I am finally put onto a life path that will bring me joy for many years to come."

-Sue Halpern

I feel more focused and have an objective instead of aimlessly filling up the day.

-Shelli Segura




90 Minute Create a Year of Joy Program

Wondering where the year went?

Didn't accomplish what you had hoped last year?

Ready to make a fresh start?

Ready to make plans that really matter to you and will help you create a life of joy?

Clean slate feeling

I love the clean slate feeling of a new year, don't you? High expectations, optimism, hope.

You could make up a couple of New Year's resolutions like, "I want to lose weight," or "I want to get organized." Then realize half way through January that you haven't done a thing. Making a resolution is not quite the same thing as planning a year.

Work with a coach to plan 2005

Instead you could partner with me to make an actual plan.

Through 3 separate 30 minute chats or through e-mail, we will dream up visions of a fantastic year ahead. This can be a joyful year. A year that matters. Not a year of "shoulds."

Then we will organize the ideas into a realistic plan

Worksheets you can fill out, will help you create a year you want to have. We will

  • Work on habits that can support your visions
  • Figure out what support you need
  • Find out what resources you already have
  • Discuss what you need to learn to fulfill your aspirations
  • Break down your plan into action steps
  • Come up with monthly activities that relate to your plans
  • Discover your strengths
  • Create rituals
  • Come up with a savings plan
  • Plan to build relationships
  • Dream of things you want to learn
  • Plan for fun
  • and more!
I have read that most people spend more time planning their vacation, than they do their life. I don't want this year to be one that you regret because you didn't seek out what was important, but followed other people's expectations for you.

Limited Spots

Because of the low price and the time committment, I will have limited openings. I will accept people as a first come, first served basis until my spots are filled. I will close the program at the end of January.

Join me in making a real plan for 2005.
