How I Used Minimalism to Rightsize my Life - CEU-eligible
Aimee Olson, Life Done Simply
Tuesday March 7, 2023 6:15PM - 8:00PM
"How might my life be better with less?" That was the question that turned Aimee's life right-side up in 2014. Despite being successful and organized, Aimee found herself drained, overwhelmed and trapped in an unfulfilling career. Realizing she was sacrificing her happiness to meet societal expectations, she shifted and began exploring Minimalism. Through this journey, she found the courage to leave her career, realign her lifestyle with her values, ad find true contentment.
Aimee will share her journey, what it is like to transition away from the typical American life into tiny living, and how she maintains an identity that isn't measured by Minimalism. She will also highlight the challenges of practicing Minimalism as a business owner in a consumer- and hustle-driven culture.
You will walk away and be inspired to:
- Begin a practice of living intentionally
- Utiliize three key minimalism strategies when encountering stuff, ideas, and expectations
- Create a life that is uniquely yours
