Rita Wilkins, ” The Downsizing Designer”

Downsize Your Life,

Upgrade Your Lifestyle

A 3-Hour

Hands-On Workshop

that will change your life.

Do you want to become unstoppable and create a life you don’t need a vacation from?

Rita Wilkins, “The Downsizing Designer,” nationally recognized interior design and lifestyle design expert, TEDx speaker, author, coach, and motivational speaker will lead you through her proven design steps to help you downsize your life and upgrade your lifestyle so you can have more time, money, and freedom to pursue what matters most to you.

What would it be like if you could downsize and declutter not only your “stuff” but also other areas of your life that hold you back to make room for what really matters most to you?  I’ll show you how!

Here’s just a few examples:

  • Work-life balance – I’ve downsized my work week. I now work 3 days and play 4 days while still growing my business by 27%.
  • Work space – Next, I downsized my workspace, reducing my overhead by over 50%.
  • Personal and Professional Development – with more time, money, and freedom I now have time to learn, lead, and participate in workshops, webinars and podcasts.

In this workshop you will look at all areas of your life.  You will discern what’s working and what’s not working in each area so you can downsize/ declutter what’s preventing you from having the life you want and deserve.  The goal is to create the life you really want, so don’t deny or pretend that it’s okay if it’s not.  You may be asking yourself what are some of these areas I could work on…

  • Relationships/ Family
  • Toxic or drain energy from you
  • Busyness… always doing something
  • “Have-to’s” and “Should’s” other’s expectations… not your own
  • Home
  • too big, too cluttered
  • Possessions… ongoing desire for more
  • Physical clutter… too much stuff
  • Work/ Career
  • Time… too many commitments, not enough boundaries
  • Multitasking… inability to focus on one thing at a time
  • Naysaying… people who second guess or doubt you
  • Emotional Clutter
  • Self-limiting beliefs… not good enough, not smart enough
  • Fears… failure, embarrassment, not getting it right
  • Many, many more…
  • Destructive and self-sabotaging habits
  • Technology… too much screen time and social media
  • Procrastination… difficulty beginning and completing tasks
  • Scarcity Mindset… never being enough or having enough

If you are ready to be both vulnerable and brutally honest with yourself, then I invite you to join me, Rita Wilkins, “The Downsizing Designer,” for my life-changing 3-hour Hands-On Workshop, “Downsize Your Life, Upgrade Your Lifestyle.”

You are the only one who can decide what you want and don’t want. This is an opportunity to make significant changes in areas of your life that you admit aren’t going the way you would like them to go so that you can do a course correction.

Ask yourself:

  • Do you know what matters most to you… the WHY that makes you cry?
  • What significant changes do you want to make so that you can live in alignment with what matters most to you?
  • What would it look like if you could remove all barriers and obstacles that prevent you from having the life you really want?

Keeping these in mind will motivate you to make changes that at the moment you might not think possible.

But why do it alone?

I will lead you through my proven design steps that I’ve successfully used for over 35 years to improve the quality of life for thousands of my clients throughout the United States.

The Downsizing Designer’s Signature Blueprint Design Process with help you:

  • Reframe your thinking so you can have what you say you want.
  • Believe it is possible.
  • Visualize your new lifestyle.
  • Make it your new reality so you can begin to implement your new lifestyle goals.

In this workshop,

  • You will create a workable plan and timeline to implement and accomplish your goals.
  • You will then start to experience the life you dream of… by design.

Remember, if I can design and live the life I love, so can you!

Redesigning your life is a process.  It takes time, effort, and commitment, but since you only get one chance at this life, isn’t it worth investing time in designing the life you love? Consider it a gift you give yourself, and make it the best gift you will ever receive.

Lifestyle Design… what is it? 

Lifestyle Design is…

  • About the choices you make regarding how you use your time, money, resources and energy so you can have the life you most want.
  • It is living intentionally, living on purpose, living in alignment with what matters most to you.
  • It is choosing to be present in each and every moment.
  • It is about creating and embracing the experiences that will influence you, mold you, change you.

If you are committed to living an upgraded lifestyle each day for the rest of your life where you choose based on your values and what matters most to you in your own life, register for my 3-hour Workshop.  I will act as a catalyst for you to discover how to downsize your life, upgrade your lifestyle so you can design a life that you love.
