Brooke McAlary

Episode 44 - December 22, 2015


5 years ago, Brooke McAlary's life was good - on paper. But she felt empty inside.


Postpartum depression catalyzed a complete change of life for Brooke, and she soon became an advocate for Slow Home Living - removing clutter and complications from your life in order to live more purposefully and concentrate on what is important to you.


She's started an amazingly successful website, blog, and podcast, where she shares what she has learned and how you can do it too.
