Spring Back Series: Growing Boldly & Simply with Emily Ley 

For The Love With Jen Hatmaker Podcast

Just as we rely on spring each year to bring light and warmth back into our lives, we also depend on the lessons of life that show up during each season. That’s why on this series of For the Love we are bringing back some of our all-time favorite guests. Not only to remind ourselves of what life was like way back when it was normal, but also to give ourselves the chance to look back on some life lessons that we should always carry with us. And this week, we are bringing you the one and only, Emily Ley. You know the superstar mom that built the Simplified empire from the ground up? Yes, that one. Not only does she guide women to live their lives based in simplicity, she also encourages them to evaluate what truly matters, and ditch what doesn’t. Jen revisits why it’s so important to not only clear clutter from your home, but to also clear the clutter mentally. Because once we take the time to remove the unnecessary parts of life, we are then able to live a life filled with joy and passion for what we actually care about. AND Jen has all new commentary about how decluttering gives you space to live simple and free and grow boldly--also the topics of Jen’s and Emily’s new books.  * * * Thank you to our sponsors!

Building a Life You Love with Emily Ley

The Alli Worthington Show

Have you ever noticed how we tend to enjoy the things we are intentional about a little bit more than our routine, day-to-day lives? What if I told you that it’s possible to build a life you love and rediscover your most authentic self without winning the lottery or upending your entire world?  Well, you’re in for a treat, friends! My dear friend Emily Ley is joining me on today’s show to talk all about how to create a life you love (and not just one that people will envy on the Internet!). You may know Emily from The Simplified Planner® or her bestselling books A Simplified Life, Grace Not Perfection, or her newest release Growing Boldly. She’s built a life she loves, and she’s on a mission to help others do the same.  In today’s episode, we talk all about life, business, and what happens when you imagine the life you dream of then create a plan to make it happen. She also shares practical ways for women to rediscover themselves, especially after spending so much time in the role of a parent or caregiver.  Tune in to hear more about:  The big risk Emily took that failed spectacularly and what she learned from it. Identifying when you’re operating overcapacity and how to implement changes to save your sanity. Emily’s “Build” philosophy and her personal challenge to every listener out there. Favorite quotes: 1. There is a time and a place for that kind of work, for the sacrifice. If you're not balancing that work with a season of rest, of nourishment, of taking care of yourself you are absolutely going to fail. 2. I think that we have this responsibility to live our lives in a bold way, but what if we lived our lives that brought others up with us. 3. I really believe that nothing about you is to be wasted. And when you know these things about yourself, you are suddenly looking at a pile of bricks that you can use to build the life you love.4. Look at life and make a choice. What matters right now? Is it the deadline? Or is it the fact that my kids need me? Is it simply getting dinner on the table? What is it? Which ball is in the air that I cannot drop? Let me give myself permission and grace to tell everything else: not right now.   In this episode I answer this question: 1. Do you have tips and suggestions when it comes to networking? (31:54) Great things we discussed:  1. Find Emily Ley on Instagram 2. Growing Boldly: Dare to Build a Life You Love  3. Simplified Sisterhood 4. Handclap 5. Call The Midwife 6. Essentialism 7.
