For Clarity & Contentment, Uncover The “Why”

My work is designed to help clients hone their ability to access purpose. At the core, what I ask them about their possessions is, "Why is this present in your life?"   Plenty of them own a plethora of pretty things. Most of them can easily invent utility for objects.
