This letter serves as a person testimonial for Michele Tocci of LifeStyle Refocus. I asked Michele to present a short topic that would complement a general financial planning and economic update for my existing client base. Her topic on “managing your lifestyle and time” was very well received by an audience that varied in age from young to old and from simple to sophisticated.

Michele’s chosen topic, presentation style, professionalism and confidence were excellent. Her presentation was punchy and perfectly timed. I would have no hesitation in recommending her input to potential personal or corporate prospects and know she would add value.

Thank you so much for the fantastic seminar you ran for us. I feel very grateful that we know you and what I have learnt from you is incredible.

You are an amazing lady and your enthusiasm and passion for you what you do is inspiring.

At the moment, it’s like I am changing the “cogs” of the thinking and my thought patterns to create a better life! I am aware that it will take time, and am remembering to be being kind to myself.

However, I feel that positive changes have already started and I am excited.

Thanks again for your time & for the “extra listening section” that was thrown in as well.

I was on a real “high” after you left, as I can now see an amazing FUN journey ahead of me.

You have taught me so much.

Grazie tantissimo!

Just wanted to send you a huge thank you for the session today. Stephanie tells me it was an amazing (and packed) session; I wish I could have made it. She said it was very well received and that you are a wonderful presenter. All the feedback has been amazing.

Would you be interested in coming back at a later date? We have our annual literature festival between May-August, but after that we book our other fun events (like your session). Would you be available if I were to contact you later in the year?

Many thanks again

“Michele, Lifestyle Refocus, has been a wonderful inspiration for our business. Her understanding of workflows and suggestions for improvements has been most beneficial. Michele’s sessions, in our workplace, have allowed us to see a different perspective of our business and our systems, which has been invaluable”.

I want to say a very big ‘Thank You’ to you and your wonderful presentation, which ALL the Volunteers thoroughly enjoyed and were very happy to go and put into practice, what they learnt!!!

Thank you once again and I am sure you will get a couple of people calling you for a little ‘assistance’ a little later on.

Thanks Michele for all your help last week. Your assistance was fantastic. So far the system is working well. I am trying to make sure I get through all my tasks each day and don’t let things build up.
Thanks again

Urban Sensations

My home office consisted of an old kitchen table with a computer on it. There was very little space to actually do any work at the desk, as it was cluttered – not just with Urban Sensations items, but also with family related items. My filing systems were basic – to say the least. It was very clear to me that I simply didn’t have time (or the desire) to get my home office functioning as a home office.

I was overwhelmed by what needed to be done and I was in the busiest part of the year – the pre-Christmas rush! I needed someone to organise it for me.

Thankfully, I engaged lifestyle refocus to come and help change a cluttered space into a desirable home office. During our initial discussions, it became apparent that 2 major changes were required –

  1. I needed a desk that I could actually work at
  2. I needed storage space and a filing system that would work for me.

So, the next step was easy, Michele and Silvana went and looked at several office furniture combinations and provided me with a short list of three. Having looked at these options myself, I chose the one that I liked the best. After the furniture had arrived, Michele and Silvana spent a day with me – sorting through all the files (culling a lot of unwanted items), creating a filing system that I could use and making the space work for me. I now have a fully functioning home office, which I thoroughly enjoying working in. I now actually have room to work in my office and my filing systems are still working for me – some 5 months later. Even after the project was complete, Michele and Silvana followed up with me to ensure that the systems that were put in place were working for me.

Of course the best part is that without all the clutter and with a filing system in place, I am so much happier and more productive than I have ever been.

Dear Rosalie and Karen, thanks for the inspiring seminar, I found it both informative and enjoyable.

I was lucky enough to win a 2 hour consultation with Michele Tocci from lifestylerefocus. She came yesterday and we spent 2 hours de-cluttering and planning my study space. She was a great help.

Thanks, I look forward to catching up with you again in the future, best wishes, Penny.

Thanks for this email and the others. I haven’t been able to bring myself to read the emailed workshop notes, because I know that it will take my time!

I found your info. on planning very helpful. I belong to a book group and armed with that info. I’ve been able to finish the book, in a more leisurely fashion, instead of hyperventilating while finishing the book, at the last minute!

All the best,


Workshop Participant

Please keep your fantastic newsletters coming, as they keep me “on track”. You always have the perfect things for me to “hear” each time… thank you.

Best wishes,
