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

Aimee Olson is a Minimalist, tiny home dweller and founder of Life Done Simply. Her coaching business focuses on productivity and time management strategies, intentional living, and mindfulness practices. She is a Past President of NAPO Minnesota and a volunteer in the NAPO Next-to-Lead, Chapter Relations, and Ambassador Committees. Aimee holds NAPO Specialist Certificates in Workplace Productivity, Brain-Based Conditions, and Residential Organizing. In 2018, Aimee ditched her "sticks 'n bricks" and set off to work and live on the road in an 180-square-foot RV with her partner and their golden retriever. They have traveled over 22,000 miles and have no plans on stopping anytime soon.

Break-out Room Questions:

  • When you hear the term "Minimalism," what comes to mind?
  • Can you identify one thing in your personal life or business that is out-of-alignment with your values?
  • Have you ever found yourself working towards a goal because of societal pressure?
