Get ready to thrive and witness profound outcomes in your life as a result of your commitment to simplification. 



I consider myself a seasoned minimalist so didn’t think this challenge would be useful but was curious and figured I’d check it out anyway. The refund guarantee helped :) Wow was I proved wrong. Never think you are too experienced to learn! Aja’s program is so thoughtful and well structured. It covers a broad range of lifestyles. I never thought about applying simplicity to my relationships. I was neglecting family and friends to get my businesses off the ground and this helped me find more work/life balance.

As a single mother with twins (boy and girl) I desperately needed to learn how to manage everything I have going on in my life (including my children’s crazy schedules). This course motivated me to uncover areas where I was wasting time and energy — and eliminate them so I could be focused.
— Yvonne, Nurse & Mother of Twins
I’m starting a whole new phase of my life: my kids are all grown and out of the house and I just retired at a pretty young age. I no longer have any commitments. I’ve worked very hard and want to jumpstart this exciting new phase by making life easier and less complicated. So far this course is showing me how.
— Anton, Retired Chemical Engineer
My work is demanding and mentally exhausting so I can’t afford to have petty things draining my already limited energy! I was overwhelmed and looking for ways to minimize stress outside of work. At first I didn’t think I had time for a course but the weekly schedule worked well. Taking this challenge gave me so many different ideas for simplifying ... things I never would have thought of.
— Dominique, Political Strategist
I started reading about the concept of minimalism and eventually got to a point where I wanted to test out whether this could work for me, especially being a design student and having a hectic schedule. I like how this course is not about forcing you to adopt certain ideas. It’s presented in a very open-minded way that helps you consider whether a particular idea is right for you, and if so shows you how to apply it. Beautiful interface too!
— Ashley, Graphic Design Student

How is this course different?

This well-structured digital course format does a better job than a book or blog post at pacing you through different principles of minimalism.

Moreover the principles shared are not just generic regurgitated concepts that you've probably heard before, but unique well-researched ideas and insights.

Lastly, the year-long program broken down into manageable weekly challenges gives you ample time to really take in the lessons and schedule the right moment to work on the challenges.

See for yourself by previewing the first challenge. You can also view summaries of some of the lessons.

Sure do! If you aren't satisifed contact me at within 30 days and I'll immediately issue you a refund and terminate your course access.

Who is this course for?

The course is a solution for anyone who is seeking actionable ways to simplify different aspects of their life — be it work, home, style, relationships, or other areas.

It doesn't matter if you are an aspiring or experienced minimalist, you'll find ample ways to put the ideas and insights from the course to work in your life.

However, this course is not for you if you aren't ready to change your mindset and take action. It's not designed for a passive learner but for individuals who are motivated to improve and develop their life by embracing simplicity.

Finally, please don't approach this course obsessively. Feel free to apply what works for you and discard the rest. Minimalism shouldn't be a rigid doctrine but one of many tools you use to develop your life. As Wilde says, "everything in moderation including moderation."

What format is it delivered in?

The course is sent via a weekly email with the lesson, challenge, and recommended reading materials.

In addition to the emails you will also have lifetime access via an online system where all the course materials are stored.

How long does it take?

It will take about 5 minutes to read each weekly lesson, however the time you spend working on the challenge is up to you. If you can't immediately work on a challenge there is an "add to calendar" feature that will allow you to schedule time so you won't forget.

Who created this challenge?

This course was created by me, Aja Nicole Edmond. I'm a creative entrepreneur and lifestyle blogger who writes extensively about minimalism. You can learn more about me and my work here.
