Less Stuff. More Time. Change the World.

You’ve heard the saying “less is more”—but have you lived it? Learn about the rewarding life of a Traverse City man who gave up his driver’s license, got rid of the TV, and began job sharing with his wife, in order to live not just more simply, but more fully. Meet Ty Schmidt, whose motto is “less stuff—more time.” With more time, Ty is able to raise his two sons; even help them become entrepreneurs. Hear this inspiring story and discover how to consume less, live more, value time, and learn how to do what you love to change the world.
