Emily Ley on Creating Stillness + A Simplified Life
When I dreamed up my podcast over a year ago,I made a list of all of the guests I really wanted to have on the show and today’s guest is one of the women who graced the top 5 on that very list! This episode is one of my favorite this year and will give you a glimpse into the life and mind of the one and only Emily Ley.
Emily’s energy is contagious and what she has done inside her company over the last 10 years is exceptional. Emily dreamed up the Simplified Planner and her boutique lifestyle brand, Emily Ley in order to create tools that help women to be more intentional and organized in their daily lives. Her work has been featured by Martha Stewart, Good Housekeeping, Glamour, Forbes, and so much more. She believes everyday life doesn’t have to be ordinary and that joy is truly found in the journey. Her mission is to inspire women of all ages to build joy and simplicity into their lives through intentional choices, purposeful plans and playful experiences.
Over the last decade, Emily has built an empire all the while raising 3 babies, two of which are twins, and stayed true to herself with life-giving relationships and passions. It was such an honor to speak with Emily and to cover all things simplicity, spirituality and even mommy guilt in this episode. I know you are going to get so much from this conversation. Enjoy!
