For 30 years, Allyson was a successful financial advisor and stockbroker. Her high-pressure, high-stress life led her to be in the top 11% at Morgan Stanley, but it also filled her life with endless pressure instead of meaning.
No longer wanting to be a slave to her tasklist, she remembered thinking, “Busy is killing me. I am overwhelmed, stuck, & exhausted.” Allyson realized she was not alone, and that life should be more than endless “to-do lists” and a never-ending battle with the monster of busyness. Thus, The 7 Minute Life was created in 2006.
Trees grow throughout their lives. Humans are designed to grow and learn. You can be different tomorrow than you are today.

We value the time of our clients and our “7 Minute” community members. We thrive on the challenge that time cannot be managed, only individual decisions can be chosen.
“If you cannot make them laugh, you cannot make them learn!” No it is NOT a quote by anything but we got you going, didn’t we! Happiness matters more than we acknowledge. Everything draws relevance from happiness – fulfillment, purpose, meaning, freedom…the adventure of live can be traced back to each person’s innate desire to be happy and filled with joy.
Combining science, technology and repeatable systems – “7 Minutes” works to deliver, the Who, What, Why, How and When of living a purposeful, productive and meaningful life. Our ideas are grounded on the idea that the human brain is plastic or changeable which is known as the science of neuroplasticity.
Reconnecting with your personal priorities and rediscovering your purpose in life are two of the foundational elements of The 7 Minute Life. Once you know your priorities and your purpose, you can make clear, deliberate choices about how you will structure how you will allocate your time and attention every day. We believe our purpose is: serving the world around us, using our knowledge, gifts and talents to change the world, and we believe love is the foundation of purpose.
