Many thanks to everyone who took part in the survey I conducted last month to help me discover how I can structure future online courses to help people the most. The results were so useful and interesting that I thought I’d share some of them with you.
Support and advice when you feel stuck
53% of the people surveyed said that the most challenging aspect of clutter clearing was making decisions about what to keep or let go and what they value most about my courses is getting expert support and advice if they get stuck.
Many people commented on how alone they feel when clutter clearing and what a huge difference it makes to be part of a group of people who are all going through the same process, supporting each other and sharing their struggles and successes along the way:
‘It’s much more motivating than tackling clutter alone’
‘I enjoyed feeling the support of the group and knowing that I was not alone’
‘Reading the comments of other participants helped me to find the courage to try it myself’
Some people said that having my personal support and being able to ask me questions when they got stuck was what they appreciated the most:
‘The best thing was the support, guidance and advice from Karen along the way’
‘I liked being able to ask questions and get answers from Karen’
‘I now want my whole life to feel like a Karen Kingston online course’
Help to get started and keep going
44% said that getting started or keeping going was the most challenging aspect of clutter clearing for them so they loved the step-by-step structure of the courses that helped them do this.
The step-by-step structure
Each course consists of 7 or 10 steps, with a new one posted every three days:
‘I liked the clear and concise instructions and the logical progression of the steps’
‘Having a new step to be completed every three days kept me motivated and going’
‘I liked the steady, predictable pace of a new task every three days’
Three days to complete each step
Some people said they would have liked a longer period of time to complete each step but twice as many said that three days per step was just the right amount of time to keep the momentum going and allow them to achieve their goals by the end of the course:
‘The pace of the course was enough to push me without stressing me’
‘Having three days to work on each task was great as I could fit it into my busy life’
‘I liked having three days to complete each task and that I could follow at my own tempo’
Expert clutter clearing help
If you need clutter clearing, I warmly invite you to take one or more of my online clutter clearing courses, where you’ll have my personal support and the opportunity to ask me questions if you need to. You’ll also enjoy the camaraderie of a lovely group of people who have all embarked on a similar clutter clearing journey to you. This is so much easier than tackling clutter alone.
The course takes place on a private message board where confidentiality is assured and all posts are deleted on the last day so no one ever has to worry about their comments being stored online.
