Life is short. In the moments before we pass, when we look back at our lives, there are only a few things that will have truly mattered, and they are:

who we loved
what we did
how & why we lived

…because everything else was just stuff.

With every breath we take, we must LIVE EVERY MOMENT unencumbered by the excess that clutters our spaces and clouds our vision of a more meaningful, more rewarding life.

Evan, please carry on with all of your supportive work. It means the world to me to have a simplistic, pure, metaphoric existence without being beholden to physical objects. Thank you for professing the simple, yet obvious truth: The world is not "better" because I refuse to part with "stuff." The world is better when I am able to bring my best self, devoid of the pressure at home, under the burden of "stuff."

Better organization and systems are something we have needed for a long time, but didn't know how to create. After downsizing homes with three kids and all their stuff, we have been challenged to make it all fit. Turns out, we don't have to! It's a glorious feeling to get rid of stuff. At some point, it all became energy-sucking clutter! Thank you, Evan, for helping us with this process. Our home is starting to feel like it belongs to us again!

Sophie Schlumberger

My office had become the dumping room for everyone else's gear! Hockey, lacrosse, camping, hunting - EVERYTHING except the things I needed in my home office! Evan helped me to make sense of it all. Together, we went through everything and prioritized what to keep, toss, recycle, give away and store. Now, my beautiful, organized office has a floor, cleared shelves and a functional desk! It was a huge relief to get rid of the backlog of all that stuff - and take back some work space for myself! Even my husband was impressed! Yes, it was worth it and yes, Evan will be coming back again!

After hearing great things about Evan's business for several months, I finally asked him to help me with a few organizational challenges in my home. In one meeting, Evan gave me the tools and inspiration to tackle the nagging projects and clutter. He was highly efficient, knowledgeable and thoughtful as we dove into each project during his subsequent visits. I highly recommend Evan and Intentional Solutions to anyone who needs help purging, organizing, and/or systemizing your home or business.

With four young kids, a ranch and a relentless schedule, Evan was just what I needed to feel like I was in control again. He helped me implement simple systems to manage my time, streamline my files, and organize my kids' spaces. Dialing in everything from our fridge and food pantry to my home office, and the mud room, Evan is a joy to work with and skilled in his methodology. I know we will be using him again. I could not recommend Intentional Solutions more highly.

Evan has provided a solution - a documented, simple, well-organized framework for identifying and improving upon areas of friction within groups. The process is based on positive dynamics and mutual respect, and it is empowering for all involved. Every person in my family is developing a greater sense of ownership of their lives and their relationships with others.
