One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


It’s Time to Lighten Up! Take a TeleClass with me?

9 Comments 1425 views

I’m excited to announce I’ll be participating in a teleclass with Laura Lavigne. You may remember, Laura invited me to be on her blogtalkradio show, "Chez Laura" back in January….

Laura is an author and speaker. Her main area of expertise is simplifying. Simplifying your life, getting rid of clutter, physical clutter, mental clutter, schedule clutter, etc.

I NEED her. :)

As someone who routinely overbooks and has her hands in so many projects sometimes I CRAVE simplicity. It’s why I took the huge step of leaving my job. I just had too much STUFF going on in my life. I mean, I still do and in a way I want it. I love what I do and I want to keep doing it but there have been times where I’ve been completely overwhelmed. My house would be in disarray (remember these pictures), my calender would be a mess (if I was keeping one), even my computer was a disaster! It would be so disorganized I couldn’t find anything. That’s just not a fun way to live.

I’m happy to say I’m getting better.


Like everything, it takes practice and change does not happen overnight. I keep sane by doing what I can when I can and surprisingly, things get accomplished!

When Laura asked if I’d be interested in her Lighten Up! course it intrigued me. She was inquiring if I was interested in teaching it with her but I was more interested in actually taking it! So we decided to try something new. Laura will be running the course and I’ll be providing insight into one specific area, diet and food clutter. For the rest of the course I’ll be more of a student or teachers aide if you will. Learning, sharing and providing my insight and experiences.

This is new to me on many level. For starters, I’ve never taken a teleclass and honestly, I didn’t even know they were still around! I’m fascinated by this way to communicate and share information and I’m curious how it works. Maybe it’s something I’ll be able to offer in the future. Who knows? It could be fun!

If you are interested in trying it with out with me click here to register. The Lighten Up! 101 course is free and there is no obligation to sign up for any additional courses. There are 2 scheduled classes to choose from, one just a week from now…

  • Tuesday, Sept 7 9PM ET
  • Saturday, Sept 25 2PM ET

Laura is offering a CD of my interview and a $50 coupon off the full 5 week course for the first 50 people that sign up. Oh! And if you are a facebook fan, she just started a fan page for the course where she is already sharing some great info!

So be honest, am I the only teleclass newbie out there? Have you taken one? Love it? Hate it? I’m curious! I only have a week to figure it all out!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.


There are 9 comments so far.

    That sounds like something I need! I’ve been living in clutter for all my life! I definitely want a change!

    Hi Roni!

    I’ve been enjoying your blog for a while now. Thank you so much for this opportunity! It sounds great, I signed up. I’ve never done a teleconference or anything like that, so this should be fun! :)

    What if I only can attend to one class? Would that be OK? You know, for the rest of us who still have an office job :P The first one is too early, I’ll still be at work.

    You’re only suppose to take once.. that’s why there are two choices smarty. ;)

    I signed up for the Tuesday class! Simplifying life has been my goal for 2010! But, too often this year, I have forgotten that goal. This is an excellent opportunity for me to get back on track! Thanks for sharing Roni!

    Roni- Thank you for the invite to this teleclass, I was expecting a Webex with some slides but that is the business side of me and my life!
    I found some tips helpful tonight and have way too many ‘to do’s’ stuck in my mind or better known as tiny threats, you were a great teachers aid and chat host!

    Thanks! It was totally fun. I hope to get as smooth as Laura… she has her material down pat!

    I must say, the course was pretty amazing. I learnt so much last night and can’t wait for this weekend to start using the Mantra in cleaning up the house…….

    So glad you enjoyed the course, Kim. The Mantra is going to make your life SO much easier! Come back on the 25th, if you’d like. I have decided to add my “Scarlett O’Hara Technique” to that class.
