Less Clutter More Life
A New Book by Barbara Hemphill with Artwork and Photography by Louise Wannier

RALEIGH, N.C. —In her first twenty years of her profession, Barbara Hemphill focused on helping individuals and organizations eliminate paper and physical clutter. In the following ten years, the dawning of the Internet age offered opportunities to apply her principles to the ensuing digital clutter, and now in recent years she has become acutely aware that there is a challenging and subtle emotional and spiritual clutter that truly prevents people from accomplishing their work and enjoying their lives. Louise Wannier’s photographs work synchronously with the text and stories shared by Barbara from her long experience working with clients of diverse background. “Our hope is that through our collaboration this book will help people to recognize and release these blocks.” Available online from Less Clutter More, and various Independent Book stores ($17.95, Paperback, 95 pages).
