Profane, but right on the money in showing you how to mentally declutter…I loved this interview with Sarah Knight. I’ve put her advice to the test and it worked! To-do lists, must-do lists, her 3-step plan to taking care of what you need to do so you can do what you want to do. Her two best-selling books, The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck and Get Your Shit Together are must-haves in your self-help library.
Feisty, fun, connected, and grounded…that’s how I would describe this incredibly talented and creative artist, Erin Stutland.

(Look for it on your local cable channels) Enjoy this amazing interview!
