    1508: How to Become a Minimalist (Or Just Simplify Your Life A Little) by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less

    1508: How to Become a Minimalist (Or Just Simplify Your Life A Little) by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less

    Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares how to become a minimalist or just simplify your life a little.

    Episode 1508: How to Become a Minimalist (Or Just Simplify Your Life A Little) by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less

    Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
    She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
    Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.
