What Summer Can Teach Us About Simplified Living

Remember when summer was simple? Remember when life was simple? Earlier in the year, Marie Kondo was front-and-center of pretty much every casual conversation and Netflix queue. Who doesn’t want to find more joy in their life, especially if it means getting rid of physical clutter in your life? Why stop at physical clutter, though?


For June, we will be talking about how to simplify your life and live intentionally. Join us as we reclaim our lives, schedules, and sanity, and learn how to live with purpose!

Sandy Olsson, founder of The Master’s Program for Women and a 4word Mentor, joins the podcast to talk about how to simplify your life and give yourself the chance to live intentionally. Hosted by Jordan Johnstone.
