Essentialism is for everyone

Greg McKeown’s philosophy is necessary for anyone who feels like they’ve hit a wall or are doing more to achieve others’ goals than their own. It’s resonated in my life and many of my friends and family’s. Super excited about this podcast!

Essentialism Changed My Life

There is one book that totally shifted my thinking and haunted my soul that there was a better way to do life. A manifesto to trade busy for better. It was Essentialism. I own the book, ebook, and audiobook. I read it every year. This podcast no doubt will do the same. Ready for the essential conversations.

This is a Game Changer

Greg McKeown has a remarkable ability to connect with people in such a way that makes them feel cared for. Greg has a passion for helping people to see what truly matters, so that they can live their best lives.
He’s changed my life for sure.

Can’t wait

This podcast feels like it’s going to be life-changing. “We all have a unique and essential mission in life.” Look forward to hearing more especially now when the things that felt so important months ago seem absolutely irrelevant.

Essentialism Saved Me

Essentialism gave me the language, the tools, and the power I needed to take control of my life. I’ve used it to improve my relationship with my daughter, I’ve used it to get out of debt, and I’ve used it to make a difference in my career.

If you’ve ever felt stuck, listen to this podcast.

Greg has consistently written and spoken Essentialism. This is a way of life that he himself lives and breaths. I look forward to this podcast and in hearing how he lives what he teaches and how others have been effected by this wonderful way of living!!

Make Your Highest Contribution!

Greg’s work has been truly essential for me! He has helped me think differently about what is truly important, identify all of the non-essential things in my life that can easily consume precious time, and come up with a practical way to execute on what is essential. I love his work, and I love his heart behind the work. He wants us each to make our highest contribution to the world and not waste this beautiful life we’ve been given. I can’t wait to go on this podcast journey with Greg!

Counting the days!!!

I had the opportunity to read the book in English, Spanish and German. I’ve learnt what “essential” really means. In Switzerland we are ready to listen to you.

Transformative Book

If the podcast is anything like the book, we are all going to be substantially better for it.
