Step Into Your Power: Organize Your Life Class Success Story – Nicole West

Susan Sly’s Step Into Your Power: Organize Your Life Class has totally helped me to get my life back!

Three and a half years ago I was in a place that I was so overwhelmed I didn’t even know where to start.

After having severe chronic fatigue for years, I was finally moving back out on my own. I had amassed three extremely unorganized storage units and mountains of clutter.

Everything I needed to face from my past was in there; I wasn’t quite sure where to start. With her clear detailed direction, in all areas of life, I have been able to sift through the ‘junk’, really ‘let go’, and ‘move forward.

My life today is absolutely unrecognizable from when I started. I have newfound success in so many different aspects of my life. I have relocated to a new city, and I now live in a much bigger place. It is completely redecorated and is in a very fun, trendy area that I would have never dreamed of affording prior to my transformation.

I’m self-employed as a freelance artist, and my business is thriving. I am organized and coordinated in everything I do. I’m driving a luxury car, and every day feels like I’m unwrapping a gift. I never know what great thing is going to happen next!

I cannot stress enough that it is all because of the principles I’ve learned in OYL. I didn’t need a therapist to help me deal with anything…I needed someone to teach me how to pick up the pieces and help me learn how to live. For that, I will be forever grateful to Susan.
