Praise for the Refuge of Simplicity Tools

"If you want to simplify your life, be more confident, and enjoy financial freedom, look no further than Value of Simple. Joel spent a decade in the financial world and brings his knowledge, warmth, and quirky sense of humor to everything he creates. I know Joel and he's 100% authentic in both the blog-o-sphere and the real-world-o-sphere."

"Having an aversion to all things 'organizing' means I’m probably not typical in your community. But I've absorbed your resources and now organization - and even personal finances or spreadsheets - have become tasks I can tackle without feeling overwhelmed or intimidated."

Dave Rowley
Creativity Coach
