There are so many rich and wonderful ways to connect with others. My guest, Connection Messenger* Annette Petrick, shares a recent experience that started with a simple decluttering project and ended up touching the lives of several other women who were thrilled to have the professional clothing Annette no longer needed. When old is made new, amazing things can happen! Use the audio player above to listen to this 90-second show. Annette gives a little back story below.

There is so much attention these days to cleaning up, clearing out and getting rid of things.  Everything from overcoming hoarding to the new best seller “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” by Marie Kondo.

When I faced an overload of belongings, I decided to connect with people who might benefit from things that no longer fit my lifestyle.  The result was a wonderful connection with a half dozen women.  We met, got to know each other, heard each other’s stories and everyone took away something valuable.  For me, it was the good feeling that I helped make life a bit easier for a few good people.

Thanks much.
