 Quotes to remember

“Once you know what you own, you define your needs and wants differently. You become more conscious about what to shop, and the quality of products and services consumed, as you have the ones you really value already.”

“The space, time, and energy gained from tidying and letting go intentionally, my clients dedicate very intentionally to their true aspirations.”

“KonMari is only one leverage to create your space.”

“Healthy habits can be created on intention, but you need the right methods to do so.”

“You can become a change maker in your own ecosystem by living up to it, talking about it, being a role model on a micro-level.”
