Look around your house. Take a good look. Nice sized kitchen, roomy bedroom, spacious closet, comfortable bedroom. Now imagine paring all of that down to fit into a 90 square foot space. All of your clothes, knick knacks, books, collectibles, etc. into 90 square feet.

How large is 90 feet. Think of the average non-master bedroom. It’s roughly 9 x 12 feet which is 108 square feet. Imagine that is all the space you have. Felice Cohen grew up in and had her own spacious digs but she decided to downsize and ended up in a 90 foot space with 77 boxes in storage. After several years, she was still in her small space and had zero boxes in storage.

It is possible. Even if you have no desire to live a minimalist lifestyle, you can live with less clutter and a little more organization … it’s easier than you think.

Jean and I are finishing up our FFF hiatus this week. So, I created this quick show to talk about taking time off. We’ll discuss why people don’t take the time they’ve earned and why they should. You may be surprised at how few people actually use their vacation days. Almost half of those who do, check their email while on vacay!

Vacation, staycation, mental health day, hiatus, whatever you call it, you need it. Burnout is real and a lack of productivity is the result of working too long and too hard. So time off is a good thing, not just for you personally but professionally too.

**Technically, Jean and I are on a two-week hiatus but I recorded to short shows (about 15 minutes each) to tide you over until we return. This is the second, and final, of those shows.**

When most people think of love they think of partners, kids and family. Yet love goes beyond that. So let’s talk about it. Love your career, love your friends, love your environment, love it all! Earlier in my life, I had a lot of the same struggles that we’ve all had but those struggles have paid off. If you are anything like me, it is time to enjoy the fruits of those labors – and that means more than money. While a big payday is nice, there is much more to it than that.

Listen in and learn how to love your life. Not a perfect life but a life worth living.

Shoes are like Men. No, they really are! I read Kim Interdonato’s book, Shoes are like Men, and I found myself and several former boyfriends as I read. In fact, I think most women will find at least one shoe that seems to fit into her dating past.

Kim and I had a fun and honest conversation about:

  • Dating in your 40s
  • Our own dating histories.
  • Which shoe we most identified with
  • How some former men friends wondered which shoe they could be
  • Why it was important not to descend into male-bashing

Shoes are like Men is a fun read and we had a really fun (and feisty and fabulous) conversation.
