For her, too:
Around the time that I discovered (Marie Kondo’s) The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up, my life was in need of change. I was a divorced single mother of five years and had been the head of a small business for 11 years.
The significant responsibilities involved in running a household and a company were wearing me down. I no longer knew what made me happy or how to enjoy the company of my friends and family.
My situation was different, but we both had a similar problem: too much stuff.
