    EP240: Get Organized to Live on Purpose with Jennifer Ford Berry

    Marketing and advertising companies get paid big money getting people to believe that they need more stuff. And consumers are told that buying new products will make them happier or skinnier or appear more successful. But the truth is that every single item we bring into our home requires some amount of space, time, energy, or money. Joining me today to discuss this topic is best-selling author, Jennifer Ford Berry.

Great Resource

Everything I hear on this podcast is challenging and thoughtful. I’ve gotten so many resources from listening to this. Saving money, relationships, kids, ethical discussions, practical home routines.

I love that Diane makes her podcast independently and produces it herself. The quality of the guests and content put this on my list every week.

Also, Diane is an incredible interviewer.

Second try

I found this podcast a while ago and loved it I really trusted the host and felt she was relatable So when your color guru was on I trusted the opinion of Diane and purchased a package from color guru ($350 worth of consulting) it was such a disappointing consultation and I felt lied to by both the host and your color guru So I unsubscribed from this podcast and I am still digesting the fact that I wasted so much money A year later I decided to try this podcast again but she recently had your color guru on again so now I’m unsubscribing I know hosts benefit from these ads but I’d much prefer ads from companies that are legit in helping me live a more sustainable and simple life

My podcast staple

I absolutely love this podcast! I always feel like I come away from each podcast with an actionable tip. Even when I listen to episodes that I didn’t think were relevant to me, I still come away with some helpful nugget from the show. I have been on the minimalist/intentionality journey for about 2 years now, and I really feel like the content here helps keep me connected to my values that brought me to minimalism in the first place. Thank you, Diane!
