Learn how to embrace a “live with less” mindset
There's been a lot of talk lately about living a simpler life, slowing down, and being more intentional about how we live our lives. This conversation has been fueled in large part by the pandemic, but minimalism is definitely not a new concept. This idea of embracing a less-is-more world view has been around for a long time, and it seems to have been going more mainstream for several years too – just look at the popularity of Marie Kondo’s book! In this episode, Liz sits down with minimalist living expert Diane Boden who hosts the Minimalist Moms podcast and recently published the book Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with Simplicity. Diane shares tips and inspiration for embracing a more minimalist approach and living a life in pursuit of less.

Springtime is the perfect time for renewal and reinvention
Springtime is the perfect time to focus on renewal, rejuvenation and reinvention. Particularly, this year as we start to see the light at the end of the tunnel on this long period of pandemic lockdown. It’s time for a fresh start, whether that's in our career, our relationships, or even just our own mindset. It's up to each of us to decide what we want to get back to as soon as possible, what we want to leave in the past, and what we want to change up – to reinvent. In this episode, Liz talks with Meagan Francis, host of the Mother of Reinvention podcast and co-host of The Mom Hour podcast about how we can take advantage of this unique moment in time when we all have the opportunity to introduce some element of reinvention into our lives.

Working from home? It may be time to take your office on the road
Many people have been stuck working from a spare bedroom or kitchen table for months because of the pandemic. And, while some companies are moving towards reopening offices, many are offering flexibility for employees to continue working remotely, at least some of the time. This shift, along with the increase in people doing freelance work, means workers who need nothing more than a laptop and strong Wi-Fi to get their job done are less tied to living close to a corporate office. Some are turning this into an opportunity to explore the world, living and working as digital nomads. In today’s episode, Liz talks to Kathleen O’Donnell who has been traveling the world solo for over two years about how she made the leap from full-time corporate gig to the digital nomad lifestyle.
