(the only party that leaves your space CLEARER than when you started)
(Update: this one-off event is on this week, last chance to get your place and join us!)
So you wanted to work for yourself. Mostly from home. Maybe you’ve been doing it for a while now (or maybe you’re just getting started).
But here’s the part they didn’t tell you: a home office doesn’t come with a built-in cleaning staff.
Or an assistant to sort through the mail and deal with the papers that somehow make it into that random box under the desk (the one that you keep poking with your toe).
Sure it’s great to get up and work on the couch… or at the dining room table. But suddenly, the couch isn’t looking that great — and the table’s covered too.
The thing is: your whole house is your office.
And we ALL know the feeling of doing our dream work in a space we’d rather not have our clients see. (Nope, it’s not just you, hon.) Which makes sense. Because you’re busy. And you don’t have that full-time assistant going round clearing up after you.
So what’s a solopreneur to do when things get a bit messy?
HAVE A PARTY, OF COURSE!
Don’t worry, I’m not crazy.
This isn’t the kind of party where your ‘home office’ gets messier … it’s one where it gets clearer!
It’s a Clearing Party! And at the end of it, you’ll not only be buzzing with energy … you’ll also have a space so Instagram-friendly you’ll need to be physically separated from your smartphone.
But wait — what the heck is a clearing party?
It’s an afternoon (or morning) where we hop on a series of conference calls over 4 hours — and you make some serious progress on clearing the stuff that’s getting in your way.
I’ll show you how to tackle the stuff that’s been hanging around then we do it! No theory, no “oh I should totally do that some day.” Just plain, old-fashioned action that you’ll actually take.
Along the way there’s
- access to in-the-moment practical tips (if you find yourself staring at a particularly gnarly pile wondering what to do)
- sharing of before and after pictures in a (completely optional but awesome) Facebook group, as well as
- celebrating and checking in as you go so you can really make this happen
It’s like having your own cheering squad, with an ask-anything go-to coach there with on the day. Speaking of which:
Hey, I’m Donna Davies Brackett, your host for this clearing shindig. And I help women just like you make their work + home spaces delightful, inspiring and functional places for their awesomeness. I’m obsessed with clearing out stuff what’s getting in your way and making it easier to do what matters.
One afternoon. One-off event. One space finally set up for you.
And NO massive to-do list hanging over your head. (Woohoo!)
When: August 29 2014 at 8am-noon Pacific (11am-3pm Eastern / 4pm-8pm UK time)
What you need to join: an internet connection and yourself! Plus your Clearing Party Pass (which you can grab below at a discounted rate).
When you’re doing your own thing, having a place that inspires you, supports your creativity and actually helps you get the job done matters. Don’t kid yourself, this isn’t a nice-to-have, it’s essential. This is where you make your living every day — and it affects everything.

I’d totally recommend this to business owners because our space matters. It affects how we think, how we get stuff done, how we interact with our clients, so it’s worth spending business time on clearing out our office or work space.
I wondered if I could justify blocking out 4 hours in my working day – but now my office feels so much lighter and more spacious. Before we started, certain filing cabinets were messy and overflowing and I was embarrassed about that – they didn’t reflect my clear mind and professionalism.
Now I feel more in control of my space and possessions. I feel better about myself: like I’m capable and in charge. I even feel more abundant.
I’d been nervous about showing people my clutter spots, but I actually loved sharing the Before and After pictures.[/testimonial]
If ‘sort that out’ has been on your list for months and it hasn’t happened yet
This is for you. Let me be straight with you: if this has been bugging you for more than a month or two… and you’ve been trying to ignore it … join us. It’s not getting done on its own.
In this Clearing Party, you get dedicated time to do this (and get some momentum going), advice from me (to go from ‘yikes’ to ‘that’s totally do-able’) and inspiration from a supportive group of fellow solopreneurs doing it alongside you then and there (just in their own homes!).
Plus, it isn’t called a party for nothing.
We have fun — and get it done. You’ll leave inspired + full of energy … with a space (your home) that supports your work. But best of all you get something done. Something you can see and benefit from for a long time. (Results you’ll see every single day? Not a bad investment for one afternoon!)
And more than just making space in your home — you’ll clear space in your head too. (Plus the way I show you to do this is addictive — within 30 minutes of starting, people don’t want to stop!).
[testimonial image=”” name=”Ann Brown” title=”www.happybeingyou.com”]Before I took part in the clearing party, I was a bit nervous and embarrassed about showing other people my mess! But being part of the group showed me that *everyone* has untidy spaces, and it’s not just me — that was a relief!
I was also skeptical about how much I would actually clear in such a short time — because I’m a bit of a hoarder. I was surprised at how much I actually got done in the time.
I would really recommend this for anyone who’s feeling weighed down by the messy areas in their home — and would like support to clear things out. I love the result and the energy of the group propelled me to focus and stick at it. Plus what surprised me is that it was great fun! [/testimonial]
I love this! But I don’t know if I have the time…
Here’s the thing: you’re a busy self-employed woman with a life and a business. You don’t have days to spend sorting this stuff out. So you put up with it. Even though it distracts you and annoys you. Even though it makes you feel like you’re always behind.
And that’s just not good for your bottom line.
You’re the biggest asset in your biz — your clarity and focus matters. You know this. Clear space = clear thinking. (And fewer distractions … and less overwhelm.) If one of your online systems wasn’t working, you’d spend time getting it back up, right? Think of this the same way.
This isn’t some sort of Martha Stewart cleaning day for women with too much time of their hands. This is essential.
Where you work has a huge impact on your productivity, clear thinking (and creativity!) every day. Within an hour of sitting down in your fresh space, you’ll know exactly what I mean (and wonder why you didn’t do it before).
We’ve all spent precious time and energy avoiding something that actually doesn’t take much time when we finally do it. This is one of those things. It’s one afternoon (or morning, depending on your timezone!) that will pay rewards for a long time. Bottom line: if you getting paid is related to what you do (and how well you do it) … this is one of the best investments you can make in yourself or your business.
$45 (around £27) to get my dream work space (and drop the to-do list?). Yes please!
This is a fun, buzzing afternoon with like-minded women (always a great idea) – but the real point is that you get results. And skip the overwhelm.
So if there are things in your physical space (from mail to drawers to piles of what-the-heck-IS-that?) that have been on your to-do list more than a month (or many more), then this is your time. Clear that list, feel the relief — and the pride of having done it (in excellent company!).
You deserve a space that matches what you’re creating, and this is your time to get it. Join us to make it happen.
