Podcast episode about declutter and joy with Tracy McCubbin and positive psychology expert Lisa Cypers KamenTracy McCubbin has always described herself as “obsessive-compulsive-delightful”, and who knew that trait could be turned into a booming business? While working for a major television director in Los Angeles, Tracy discovered she had the ability to see through any mess and clearly envision a clutter-free space. Tracy soon found more and more people were asking her for help. Before she knew it, dClutterfly was born. Twelve years later Tracy decided to take what she had learned and write a book to help others deal with clutter and is the author of the newly published book Making Space, Clutter-Free: The Last Book on Decluttering You’ll Ever Need.
