How One Woman Radically Simplified Her Life and How You Can Too

Our Guest on FarOutRadio  is Tammy Strobel, Rowdy Kittens Blogger and proponent of simplified living in tiny homes. Tammy and her husband were living a normal middle-class lifestyle: driving two cars, commuting long distances, and living well beyond their means. Now they are living the voluntary downsizing — or smart-sizing — dream. Tammy shares the concepts of her latest book, You Can Buy Happiness and its Cheap. She combines research on well-being with numerous real-world examples to offer practical inspiration. Tammy has a fresh take on our things, our work, and our relationships. She  spells out micro-actions that anyone can take to step into a life that’s more conscious and connected, sustainable and sustaining, heartfelt and happy. Join us for a fascinating look at her journey, where she has been and where she is going.

About Tammy Strobel:

My blog RowdyKittens is about going small, thinking big, and being happy. I post a few articles a week on topics like living simply, photography, and writing.There is no one-size fits all approach to living simply or to happiness, which is why I write from my experience and emphasize options. After spending five years working with survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, I learned how important it is to talk about options, rather than telling people what to do or what to think.

As a peer counselor, the empowerment model was the foundation of my training. The approach emphasizes peer support and helps victims of violence focus on problem-solving, one small step at a time. I believe this model can be applied to any type of struggle and it informs my writing. By examining options, it is possible to empower yourself and to find happiness.

I have a Bachelors of Arts in Economics, a Masters degree in Public Administration, and a Masters of Arts in Education. All of my degrees emphasized formal and technical writing.

Before I started my micro-business in 2010, I worked in the investment management industry and in the social service sector as a peer counselor. I worked directly with clients and wrote articles, formal reports, policy papers, website copy, and more.

As an entrepreneur, I sustain myself through writing, photography and teaching. And, I’ve discovered that teaching is the best part of my job! Currently, I offer a  few online courses.
