As many of you know, I made the decision a few months ago to start offering Life Coaching. I narrowed my specialty to Clutter Coaching as that is what most people reading this blog are looking for, and it’s where I have a lot of experience. I took on four clients initially and it has been an awesome experience. One client has graduated already and is enjoying much more open space in her garage. The others are making huge progress on whole house decluttering and I am really enjoying the work we are doing together.
If you’ve visited Rethinking the Dream lately, you’ll notice the new look. I installed a more modern WordPress theme that gives it a clean look while also adding some backend features.
I also added several pages dedicated to Clutter Coaching. You can get to these pages from the top menu. Included are pages for Clutter Coaching, Rates, and a page where you can book a free session. I also updated my “About” page, so check that out too.
Another big change is that I’m moving away from my pen name. I decided that if I’m offering professional Clutter Coaching I need to use my real name. I feel the authenticity is important. I initially used a pen name because using my real name was a scary proposition as I started my whole house declutter, move towards minimalism, and downsize from a four bedroom house to a two bedroom apartment. I was afraid of what others would think and I wasn’t ready for my friends and family to know what I was doing. I’m past that now and I’m fully comfortable with the path we have chosen, even though it is different from the path that most others are following. (I wish I had a Life Coach or Clutter Coach to help me early on, maybe I could have used my real name all along if I had the support of a good coach.)
On that note, let me introduce myself. My name is Eric West and I’m happy you are here following my blog. If you are on Google Plus, you can add me to your circle. https://google.com/+EricWestLifeCoach
I’m very excited to announce my new Facebook group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/rethinkingthedream
This is a closed group, meaning that only members can see the posts. Everyone else can only see that the group exists and who the members are, they can’t see any of the posts unless they join. I like this, as most people don’t understand the concept of downsizing and get defensive when those of us leaning towards minimalism discuss the idea of living with less. This gives us a private space to share our thoughts openly, and get input and support from others that think like we do.
I invite you to join our new Facebook group to get access to like minded people. I believe if you go to our Facebook group link, there should be an option to Join Group. After joining, I will be prompted to approve you. Once I approve you, you will be able to post, share, and ask questions in our own private community of like-minded people.
This Facebook group thing is new to me, so if you have any trouble, email me at Freedom (at) rethinkingthedream (dot) com and we’ll work through any issues that come up.
That’s all for now. Be sure to take advantage of a free coaching session even if you don’t plan on buying more sessions. I’d love to help you with your decluttering, downsizing, or life changes.
