Modern Minimalism: When Less is More

Many of us feel like our stuff owns us, rather than the other way around. We desire simpler home and work environments with freedom and room to breathe, but we’re often unsure how to get there. In this humorous, engaging presentation, Rose explores how minimalism, the age-old philosophy that less is more, can improve our modern, busy lives. 


Time: Intend It, Don’t Just Spend It

We are all given the same 24 hours each day, yet many of us go to bed each night wondering if we’ve spent our time wisely. In this practical, thought-provoking presentation, Rose focuses on techniques to help us spend time more intentionally. Audiences will learn how to identify time gaps, balance must do’s with could/should/want to do’s, and use time blocking to make meaningful and productive daily schedules.
