The How-To For Decluttering Your Life – My New Book Is Now Available!

It is official my new book The Simple Life Guide To Decluttering Your Life: The How-To Book of Doing More with Less and Focusing on the Things That Matter is available in print and digital! (see below for purchasing options)

This is the third book in The Simple Life series, and I really enjoyed writing it. It wasn’t easy, as I get into some touchy subjects that most people will not touch in similar books. But as I say in this book, these are the elephants in the room, and if you don’t address them I believe you are making your life more difficult than it has to be. Trust me I have been there, so I don’t pull these out of thin air – just like everyone else I have made a few wrong turns in my life. I’m a firm believer in getting to the point and ripping the band aid off your problems or difficulties. If you are looking to pet fluffy bunny rabbits and chase unicorns this book is probably not for you… or maybe it is just what you need 🙂

The DIY Living Off The Grid Workbook Is Here!

Going Off The Grid Workbook

I’m proud to announce the third book in the Going/Living Off The Grid series is now available! This is my first traditionally published book with Ogden Publications, which is the publication arm of Mother Earth News. Mother Earth News was fantastic to work with, and did a great job with this book. As you can see from the title – The Beginners Guide To Living Off The Grid: The DIY Workbook for Living The Life You Want, this is an A-Z book for planning your off the grid dream. This was a book I wanted to do for a while, but just wasn’t sure how to go about it. After discussing my ideas for a workbook on the subject Mother Earth News really liked the concept and the project was born.

Two Things Stopping You From Living The Simple Life

Two Things Stopping You From Living The Simple Life

two things stopping you from living the simple life

Simple living is easy, well easier than today’s modern lifestyle, but getting there sometimes is not. I know from the questions I usually get on the subject most people want to live a simpler and happier lifestyle, but they are not sure where to start. I must emphasize this – anytime you make a fairly drastic change in your life there is pain in the beginning – nothing that improves your life long term comes easy, it takes work and perseverance.

I have found there are two main things that stop people dead in their tracks when pursing what I like to call “The Simple Life.” I plan to expand on these two simple living killers in a future book, but I want to share some of the basics for you to get started on your journey of happiness, and freedom.
