Living Intentionally: Debunking the Myths of Minimalism

The National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals invited me to speak on their Stand Out podcast about minimalism and how it has transformed my life and how it inspires my client work. My curiosity for minimalism brought me on a journey that has granted me freedom and contentment that I never thought possible. I hope it sparks some curiosity within you as well!
