Class Info

Though she doesn't have an MBA, had $300 in her savings when fired, and has been just “figuring it out” as she goes along, Saya has run a successful “wouldn’t change a thing” business since 2004, and despite challenges, is blissfully happy 99% of the time. She shares her Life of Yes℠ philosophy, perfect for people eager to transform their lives. Her goal: to equip you with the tools to make changes in your life, leaving you happier, healthier, and more in control of your own fulfillment.

Saya shares personal anecdotes and the philosophies that have shaped her path, encouraging students to have "Aha!" moments and think proactively about how you can get the most out of life. You'll leave not only with big-picture philosophies but also small-actionable steps you can apply immediately.

Have you done everything you’re supposed to do – the job, the condo, the schooling, the significant other – but still feel something is amiss?
Do you feel like you’re treading water, constantly moving but never getting anywhere?
Do you want to feed your entrepreneurial or creative spirit?
Are you interested in bringing more goodness to your life?
Are you open to exploring areas of your life you’ve never considered exploring?
Does doing something for yourself sound unusual, needed, nice?
Are all your friends getting married, having babies, moving to the suburbs?
Are you looking for an answer to “What do I want to do?

    This class was great. Saya knows her topic and is energetic about sharing what she has learned. It was easy to follow along and take notes. It was also excellent that she provides a list of things to check out in Chicago. I am enjoying looking into all of these.

    Saya did an amazing job creating a fun and relaxing atmosphere. I was immediately comfortable upon arriving. The content of the class was interactive, easily actionable, and invaluable. I loved the class.

I think spending more time discussing the initial obstacles one will face, fears about change/ putting yourself out there & even brainstorming as a group on how to work through those challenges would have left me feeling more satisfied when I left the class.

      Lots of tech-based tips. You have to remember, these are things that help her. So the specific program may not help you, but the concept might. I've already come back and streamlined 4 things I do regularly. Glad I went!

Even if you only learn one thing, do it. Saya is a productivity master. I thought that a lot of the information she shared was perhaps not so useful for my work situation. However, after getting to work on Monday (class was the Saturday prior), I realized how relevant so much of it is. Do you have those days that just breeze by? Days where every minute really counts? In this class, you will learn about tools that will give you those minutes. ","teacher_response":null}

Loads and loads of amazing resources that Saya uses. She discusses not only what the tool does, but gives very specific examples of how she uses them. Helped me to envision the possibilities for my own use. She also provided examples of tools that do the same thing as the ones she uses, and with an explanation of either why she doesn't use them or that she hasn't tried them. For paid tools, (not too many) she generally provided a free alternative if she knew of one. The 4 hours flew by and was almost not enough time to go through everything. And the bonus is that it is in Saya's home, so it is comfy and relaxed without the sterile environment of so many other locations. It's a happy place with a great vibe. Highly recommend this class!","teacher_response":null}

However, I'm glad I attended! I often am frustrated by how much time I end up wasting because my digital life is as disorganized and cluttered as my analog life (scraps of paper with to-do lists, hunting through my flooded email inbox for specific emails, etc). We learned about specific apps, Chrome extensions, programs and other tools that streamline one's life online. I found these tools to be very useful and immediately applicable. I do wish we had more time to cover strategies for prioritizing tasks throughout the day or week, as I know I tend to be all over the place doing things, but not actually getting anything done! In the end, I came away from the class feeling refreshed and inspired to apply what I learned and I'm already seeing results: less stress! Saya is a very effective and experienced teacher, and I highly recommend any of her classes and events!","teacher_response":null}
