Like most, inevitably I fail a few weeks into the year. Whether it be my bad habits, the desire to shift some unneeded weight, the year I learn a new language or start to paint. The only resolution that I hold onto seems to be the one that promises I won’t do it. Resolutions, for whatever reason, have not worked for me.
Social Media… it’s a jungle out there.
Firstly, let me say that I have been guilty of what I’m about to write. Why am I writing and exposing myself and possibly many of you who are reading? I’m writing because we need to address ‘Social Media, Teens and the Judgement We Pass’. We are raising teenagers and I’ve had a gut full of the harmful chatter. It’s time to say something.
We are excited to invite you to join us tomorrow for GetRealLive Radio. Yes, there is Real Talk Radio with myself and Mark Zschech and back by popular demand and much planning, Nicole Liboiron and I are hitting the air waves tomorrow morning and we would love for you to join us.
Tomorrow we have a really interesting guest. Author, Joseph Wakim, will be with us and he will be sharing his story about losing his wife and how he had to step in and raise his 3 Daughters on his own. Published by Allen & Unwin the book is called, ‘What my Daughters Taught Me.’ It has been described as a ‘brilliantly honest memoir … hilariously so’ and also a ‘fight against gender and cultural stereotypes’.
The book not only deals candidly with father-daughter relationships, but also with resilience, hope, faith, masculinity, strength, grief and the ‘humour hormone’.

We are so grateful to be partnering with some great Australian Professional Organisers as we bring you Peter Walsh: Live in Sydney at the Sydney Theatre.
We want to take a moment to introduce you to them personally and give you the opportunity to engage with them.
Pinklily is an amazing organisation that is able to create the wardrobe you’ve always dreamed of. Discover products that will transform the way you feel and care for your clothing, shoes and accessories.
No more “I’ve got nothing to wear” moments. All your beautiful possessions at your fingertips. Imagine your wardrobe calling out to you and welcoming you rather than feeling like the doors are bursting with drama.
AAPO is the industry association for Professional Organisers. AAPO is an exceptional organisation who have been extremely easy to work with. We are grateful to be partnering with them. AAPO are hosting Peter at their annual conference on the Gold Coast in July 2014. For more details visit their website.
We are really happy to have Heavenly Order on board as well. Heavenly Order is about making your life run as smoothly as possible, no matter what the circumstances. Being organised is not about perfection, it’s about being prepared for life. We offer hope to the overwhelmed and tired! Sarah Cottman, owner of Heavenly Order, has personally overcome the confusion and chaos that comes with Chronic Disorganisation.
Need Rescuing? Well, Clutter Rescue is here and ready…. Helen from Clutter Rescue says, ‘I’m just like you – juggling everything that comes into my life, some times succeeding, sometimes just coping.’ Clutter Rescue has been created in an effort to bring much needed help your way, they provide real honesty and advice from a woman who walks in the same shoes as you! Their website is for busy Mums wanting more balance in their lives. Helen understands that it might seem strange thinking that getting organised, having a decluttered space and schedule, and having helpful kids will give you more balance – but her promise is that it will!
I can personally recommend this company to you as I have used them in my own life. 1-800-Got-Junk are a wonderful organisation that come in and help sort out your space in a way that is like no other. Their staff are trained exceptionally and truly understand what it means to be overwhelmed by your stuff or simply time poor. In my case, we were moving countries and at the end of the packing we had one ‘storage’ room that contained the leftovers or the things that didn’t have a home. We needed help and we needed it quick. A call to 1-800-Got-Junk and they were there in a professional moment, ready and willing to help us rid ourselves of the excess.
Additionally, 1-800-Got-Junk has partnered with us in Canada when we hosted Peter Walsh for our #CalgarySpringClean Live Event. 1-800-Got-Junk were on board and at the venue ready to collect gently used items that our attendees generously donated to WINS (Women’s in Need Society). Again, their professionalism and kind service were greatly appreciated. At every turn and with every experience 1-800-Got-Junk has delivered more than they have taken away and we are grateful for their partnership.

- 1 in 4 Australians feel ANXIOUS | OVERWHELMED | DEPRESSED about the clutter in their homes
- 1 in 5 Australians have built a SHED | GARAGE to store their extra stuff
- 1 in 8 Australians have MOVED HOUSE to accommodate their superfluous ‘stuff’*
(*The Australia Institute)
Needless to say, the research continues and there are many more stats we could share about the mounting piles that Australians are trying to dig themselves out of. Whether it be stuff, emotional clutter or even our increasing waist lines, our worlds seem to be bursting with the need for well needed clean sweeps, conversations and movement.
It would appear that we are drowning and thankfully there is help at hand. GetRealLive is throwing a much needed lifelife to overburdened and overwhelmed Australians who are hung over from years of overconsumption. This lifeline comes in the form of one of our very own who has already helped hundreds of thousands of Americans resurface and face their challenges. Peter Walsh, who is known across the world for his work on The Oprah Show, Rachael Ray and in our own backyard on The Living Room which is aired on Channel Ten.
Peter has answered a clarion call and has returned to help his fellow Aussies turn (in some cases) chaos into health and order. Peter asks his signature question, “Does the stuff you own help you live the life you want.?” With that question echoing through the minds of many he proceeds to help by building back into people.
February 21st Peter will be at the Sydney Theatre for a 1 Night Only Live Event where he will engage & entertain his audience whilst leaving them equipped to head home with the desire to live the life they want and deserve. This event is not to be missed. Book your tickets now Don’t delay!
Here’s a glimpse of some of the fun you can expect…. This and so much more Peter brings to the stage in a Live Experience.
