Do you ever feel overwhelmed? Does it sometimes feel like the job, the kids, all the things you have to do, and all your responsibilities are pulling you in ten different directions?
Would you love to know how to have a rockin’ life that runs like a well oiled machine without killing yourself in the process?
Wouldn’t you love a life where everything ran smoothly? The house stays clean, there’s great dinners on the table most nights, everyone in the house is healthy and happy…
Sound like a tall order?
I’ve been a single mom for 18 years. My daughter is now grown and out on her own.
I’ve learned a few things about managing life over the years. I was one of those women who wanted it all. To be great at everything at work and at home. At first I was killing myself.
Then I figured out that managing life is not much different than managing business. You need systems in place for everything to run smoothly.
A haphazard approach will give you haphazard results. Let me try to illustrate -
Can you relate to Anita’s story?
She’s hit the snooze button one too many times. She realizes she’s going to be late again. She pulls her tired body out of bed and starts the Mad Dash Shuffle.
Rushing to the bathroom, Anita lets out a little yelp and swears as she stubs her toe on the books piled up on the floor next to her bed that she really means to read. Darn, if only there were more hours in a day, she could get everything done! Good Lord, the bathroom tiles are cold this morning.
Great, the mirror’s dotted with God only knows what and the sink looks like it’s the source of a science experiment. Feeling a little nauseous, she tries to ignore it and get herself ready. No time.
Anita, now sort of awake after a quick shower, dashes into the kitchen. Oh great, she knew she should have done the dishes. She had been so tired after rushing around all day, like she always does, that she couldn’t stand the thought of being in the kitchen one more second after cooking, serving and clearing dinner. Besides, she had to catch her favorite shows you know. Now, not only was the sink overflowing, there wasn’t even a clean cup for her coffee.
Finding a cup that wasn’t too bad, Anita gave it a quick wash. Thank goodness, no matter what, she always sets up the coffee maker the night before. Anita poured herself a cup of coffee, threw in a couple of sugars and grabbed some milk. Only it wasn’t milk, it was outdated, rather thick and lumpy heavy cream. ICK! She tossed the carton in the sink and went back to the fridge. No milk. Anita made the mental note – and not for the first time, to start keeping lists.
Anita yells down the hall for her kids to get moving.
“Mooooommm, Where’s my …..?
“Mooooommm, I can’t find the…..”
“Moooooommm, I need a ride, I can’t bring my project on the bus…
Anita manages to get the kids out the door, just in time to catch the bus. Someday there’ll be time for breakfast. Someday when things are not so hectic.
She grabs the project she has to drop off at the school on her way into work, jumps in the car happy to see that at least she remembered to get gas yesterday. Anita glances at her watch. She’s going to be at least 15 minutes late for work…again. Oh no, more like 25!
Anita grabs the steering wheel with both hands and taps it repeatedly with her frown-lined forehead. Grumble, Grumble, Grumble. This is so unfair. If only there were more hours in a day.
For some reason it never dawns on Anita that the number of hours in a day is the same for everyone.
Anita is the perfect example of living your life by accident.
The alarm goes off, it’s set for 15 minutes earlier than usual. Mary smiles as she gets up. She’s thinking of how excited Jane was last night with the school project she had finished over the weekend. She’d had plenty of time to touch it up here and there last night.
Mary was eager, as usual, to start her day, there was so much to look forward to. The carpet in the family room that she had vacuumed last night felt soft on her feet.
Mary slipped her Pilates DVD into the player. A half hour later, all stretched and feeling ready to take on the day, she headed toward the bathroom. On her way, Mary checked to make sure the kids were starting to show some signs of life. She smiled and began humming when she heard them ready to start the adventure of a new day. She heads to the sparkling bathroom. There’s a nice clean smell in the air. She takes a nice hot shower and heads for the kitchen.
The kitchen is clean and almost sparkles in the morning sun. She is greeted by the smell of freshly brewed coffee. She has 15 minutes to sit and drink her coffee and prepare today’s game plan.
Just as she completes her morning routine, the kids come piling in to get breakfast. Mary and the children laugh and eat together. 20 minutes later, they all grab their stuff and head off to buses and cars.
Mary strolls into the office. She enthusiastically greets people with a smile. Grabs another cup of coffee and sits down with her “to do” list. When the phone rings, she answers it with that big smile in her voice – which makes her boss on the other end smile. It feels good to promote someone like this.
Across town, Anita rushes into her office, 25 minutes late, drops her stuff and grabs for the ringing phone – grumbling at the person on the other end. The caller happens to be her not too happy boss.
Rather an amazing difference, wouldn’t you agree?
The women live in the same type neighborhood, hold similar jobs, have 2 kids. What on earth could make such a big difference in their lives?
It’s their habits.
Mary is in the habit of cleaning up her kitchen every night. She is in the habit of getting up when the alarm clock rings. She is greeted with a nice clean kitchen and fresh brewed coffee. Her day is started on a calm and positive note.
Anita lives in what T. Harv Eker calls ‘habit hell.’ Anita is in the habit of hitting the snooze button. She gets up to a war zone in her kitchen every morning. Her day starts with chaos every day. Anita is in the habit of putting everything off until it is a disaster.
Ironically, Mary’s life is much easier. She has more free time, more energy, more calm, and more confidence.
But – How can you get in the habit of doing what you need to do, when you need to do it so that you can have a good life too?
With a Whole Life Overhaul. One little change at a time.
Important Tip - Do not try to change everything at once. You will drive yourself and everyone around you crazy and end up giving up. Work on one thing at a time.
Transform from an Anita to a Mary
When you enroll in Whole Life Overhaul, you get a daily email with an easy assignment that will help you build your good habits in every area of your personal life – one at a time.You will build your own life preserving rituals. The emails will become like a good friend, encouraging you every day.
Every day you get stronger and more confident. Watching your life transform is the most amazing thing!
Realizing that you have control feels incredible. You can start feeling hope and happiness instead of constant dread. Its like a huge weight has been lifted. The clouds start to part and you see the sunshine. Every little accomplishment is a victory!
You will be able to achieve more in less time, enjoy more freedom, and be free of all the stress that you feel today.
It’s hard to put into words how different life feels.
This course has helped me to focus more in the last several months than my whole life and the insights that I’ve gained is invaluable. God bless you.
Throughout the 26 week course you will work on things like -
- Attitude adjustment – shift the negative thought patterns that are keeping you stuck in the chaos to new positive ‘can-do’ thoughts that will help you finally start moving forward!
- Create a healthy home environment where everyone can relax, rejuvenate and de-stress.
- Time management – Half the battle in surviving life these days is won with planning. You’ll learn to be a master planner.
- Project management – So many things we need to do seem so big and overwhelming. But if you take a big task and break it down into easily doable chunks, it’s a cinch!
- Diet and health – because you can’t live a life of bliss without health and energy
- Communication – why it seems like people don’t listen to you, and what to do instead.
- Problem solving – how to look at a problem and come up with a workable solution without going into a tizzy.
- Dealing with negativity – its everywhere, and you better be able to not let it affect you.
- Finances – finding money, saving money, and paying off debt.
- And so much more. That short list is just the tip of the iceberg.
And we use some unorthodox methods to apply the lessons in real life – like getting your house cleaned up and mandatory relaxation. Its full of real life application, not just airy theory. Some weeks we’ll focus only on you and how you’re feeling.
Many programs seem to forget that you are a person, not a robot. Stuff comes up inside that can really sidetrack us. You need to be able to deal with it so you can keep moving ahead.
Every week you will be building your self esteem. As you master each set of lessons you will feel stronger and more capable. Each week you will create the changes that will help you create the life that you want.
Imagine how your life will change when you take a positive action every day.
Here’s how it works -
Every day you will get an email containing the easy assignment to complete that day. Its like having someone right there every morning to remind you to build your good habits. Get in the habit of opening that email first thing every morning.
Every Sunday you will receive a PDF containing all of your lessons for the week so you can have a bit of a heads up about what’s coming. I suggest printing them out and putting them in a binder so you can revisit them when life gets a little out of control.
Starting in week 3, your PDF will contain daily planners. Print those out on Sunday night so you have them ready for the week. We are using all of your senses to establish your new patterns. You will actually hand write on this planner and carry it with you. Writing something down uses different neural pathways in the brain. Research shows that it is more effective than typing.
Here is another thing that makes this course different
You need accountability. 100% fail without it. I’m serious on this.
Every week you send in a weekly report. Its just a few short questions so I can see how you are doing.
It is also your opportunity to ask questions and get feedback. Each person is facing different circumstances. The weekly report allows us to work together to find personalized solutions that work for you.
But you don’t need to wait for the weekly report. As a student in Whole Life Overhaul, you can email me anytime you have a question, or need extra encouragement.
Its very important for your success that you get in the habit of sending in your weekly report simply because we always do better if we know someone is watching, right?
Its almost like getting personal coaching, without the big price tag.
What are your options?
You can do nothing and continue living the way you are living – in ‘habit hell,’ letting things spin out of control, which affects your health, your relationships, and your finances.
You can buy a self improvement book. Maybe you’ll read it. Maybe you’ll try to apply it in your life. Then life gets busy and you forget about it. It becomes shelf help.
You can hire a life coach and spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars. These programs start at $97 a month and go up from there. With some you get a call a week. Some you get a call a month. Some are group sessions. Some are one on one coaching.
I was on a call recently where the program cost $2,997. Clearly the majority of the people on this call could not afford that. What about them? Who is going to help the people who cannot afford an expensive coach?
By making this an email program, I was able to make Whole Life Overhaul an affordable option for everyone. For just $9.97 a week, you get your lessons and personal attention. You can’t get that deal anywhere else.
We take self improvement, time management, organization, life skills, coaching, and application and practice – and roll it into one amazing life improving e-course. Today you are going to start systematically putting your life in order. A Whole Life Overhaul!
You have the power to choose the values you live by
Whole Life Overhaul will help you rebuild your self worth, to be stronger, more disciplined and more determined and live a life of dignity and value.
- You’ll feel more fulfilled, calmer, and happier.
- Your home will be a calm retreat where you can relax and rejuvenate.
- Your family life will be calmer and more enjoyable.
The calmer and more confident you will carry over into your career life and you’ll see changes start to happen there too.
Imagine how you will feel when you are organized, in control and ready to take on the challenges the day brings.
How powerful and unstoppable would you feel if you had that kind of control of your life? Would you be absolutely amazing?
So, Let’s get to work. But Only If You Really Really want –
* More control of your life
* More free time
* Better health
* More energy
* Lose Weight
* Cleaner – calmer home

What Others Are Saying
|I do want to thank you for being a little hard on me. It makes me feel like you really care about what you are doing with this program and helping people like me who really need it. It also makes me realize I need to work harder and pull myself out of my comfort zone and be aware of the changes that need to be permanent.|
Thank you Carole!
For whatever reasons I am more motivated and am DOING!
It’s amazing how your course is making me think about things like exercise and eating right and doing things besides working every single day. It’s very motivating.
All the best,
This course has helped me to focus more in the last several months than my whole life and the insights that I’ve gained is invaluable. God bless you.
|I am excited about the future as with this program’s help, I know I will grow to new heights.|
I started a new job, bought business cards (really cute ones), less crankey, a clean, organized house. I noticed that I am smiling more.
I will recommend this program to all of my friends, who ask where the change in me came from.
Some of the ideas in the recent Lessons I have already learned. All of them are right on, and very valuable. I was just thinking the other day, they should make this course mandatory for everyone BEFORE they have a baby. They should have these skills in place before the damage is done. I know that isn’t realistic, but, if they “got it” it would sure save some emotional damage to the children, and maybe even some marriages. It’s great!
This material is excellent, and I really look forward to the next one. I have not found a single scrap that I disagreed with. I am so curious about what will be coming in the future!
|I think the topics that are being addressed are very pertinent to anyone attempting to make a solid and lasting change in their lives. I believe, as many self-development experts that I have read have stated, that the only real change occurs when you change the little things that you do – the habits of being. I also believe that real change can occur only when you have a mindfulness of what you are doing all day. It appears to me that you are addressing these very issues with the course. I will work harder to stay current with the work.|
I find myself looking forward to finding out what each day’s focus will be – the daily nature of the correspondence, I believe, fosters the mindfulness I mentioned. Overall, I’m very impressed with the course so far!

It’s so important to develop goals and plans that will bring you freedom from your struggles. We can all do it, if we want it badly enough. I also want to say that your course, Whole Life Overhaul, is a great way to free yourself from whatever is holding you back. It’s helped me gain a lot of personal insight and develop new perspectives on things.
Thanks for all the motivation you provide in your ezine We all need it! I also love the tips you give.
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!
Live the life you’ve imagined.
As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.”
-Henry David Thoreau
P.S. The prices are a market test. As more and more people take advantage of the personalized feedback, we may be forced to raise prices, or close down enrollment. Don’t put it off and chance being disappointed.
Or, you can close this window and do nothing…and nothing will change
P.S.S. – If you have read this far, you are an Anita who really wants to change. I’m not going to tell you this is some magic pill. Its not. I’m not going to tell you that you don’t have to work at it. You will. It will require commitment on your part.
I will tell you that in a few short months, once you master these life skills – Your life will be totally different.
You can do it!
