Nope, no human babies, just made an online course ;)
Making Space is finally here! Seriously, creating this course has been WAY more work than I ever expected. I came up for the idea over the Christmas holidays last year, when I had a little creative space (i.e. grandparents were taking care of my kid). My original idea was for the course to launch in Spring 2017. I quickly realized that was unrealistic and moved it back to Fall 2017. I didn’t realize that that would still require a lot of “hustle” (my LEAST favorite word) over the summer, and so I chose a slower pace. That pace got us here, launching in Winter 2018. I’m really proud of the work I’ve put into this and I know that if it resonates with you, it’ll be really useful.
Here are all the details:
The course is four weeks long. Every Saturday, you’ll receive an email with the class for the week. In each class, there is a video to watch, workbook exercises to complete, and homework for you to do in your closet. There will also be a private Facebook group where I’ll be checking in on you and you can share about your progress with the other class members. Every Thursday, I’ll do a Facebook Live session in the private group to answer any specific questions that may have come up for you during the week’s work.
Week 1: Define your why, your style, and take inventory
Week 2: Editing
Week 3: Overcoming editing stumbling blocks
Week 4: Organizing what’s left and making a mindful plan going forward
That’s basically it. By the end of the four weeks, you should have a wardrobe filled with only things you wear and feel good in.
Do I need to have watched the class and done the work by the time of the Facebook Live discussion? You can follow along with the group and have the exercises done by the time we discuss them in the FB group, or you can go entirely at your own speed.
How much time do I need to devote to the class? It’s going to vary for everyone, but on average, you should be prepared to devote at least 2-3 hours a week to the work.
How is the program delivered? You’ll get an email each week with a link to the course website, where you’ll be able to watch the week’s videos and download the corelating worksheets.
How much does Making Space cost? The course will take you through the exact process I use with my one-on-one closet cleanse clients ($350 and up). You'll get the course for $197.
How many people will be in the class? I want to be able to communicate with every member of the class, so there will be a limited number of spots.
Can guys take this class? Nope. For this class, we’re going to focus a lot on the messages we’ve gotten from others about what we as women should be wearing, so it wouldn't be appropriate.
Of course, let me know what other questions you have, I’d love to hear them!
So who should take Making Space?
I really intended this course to be for people who crave more simplicity in their wardrobes but have a hard time getting from the idea of it to actually putting it into practice. If you don’t know what to keep and what to get rid of, if you feel like you have too much but don’t know where to start, if you know your life would be easier without worrying about clothes but you still think you need options, this class is for you.
Here’s what a few other people who’ve gone through the process had to say about it.
It’s such a relief to have a more consolidated wardrobe, to know what pieces I need to focus on, and to know which pieces I should avoid. - Veronica
I have felt so much better about my clothes, and I continue to let go of pieces that don’t work for me anymore. - Michelle
Eliminating clothes from my closet could have been tragically painful. Instead it seemed like the easiest decisions I had made in a long time. My closet has since undergone two additional revisions with Dacy and another on my own. She helped me find the freedom of owning less. - Brooke
