On September 28, 2014, Sandbox Cooperative will host Mark Scandrette. Mark will share with us about themes from his new book, FREE: Spending Your Time and Money On What Matters Most. Mark will invite us into a way of life focused more on simplicity.
How you spend your time is how you spend your life. And how you spend your time is shaped by your financial choices. In the deepest sense, simplicity is an invitation to align time and money with what matters most. We were made to flourish and do good in a world full of abundance. Yet many of us feel crunched for time, stressed in our finances or perplexed about what makes life meaningful. There is a trusted path for recovering the life of meaning, freedom and compassion we were created for. This journey of simplicity invites us to adopt soul practices like gratitude, trust, contentment and generosity and practical skills like time management, goal setting and living by a spending plan.
