About Allyson Lewis

Allyson Lewis is an internationally acclaimed time management expert who can help you, yes YOU, stop running on the hamster wheel of busyness and start having more time for the things that give your life meaning.

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.

Busy was killing me

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.

But, the stress of her life really came to a head in 2012, when a mysterious illness put her out of commission, and on the brink of death for a year and a half. She made big changes and three years later in 2015, The 7 Minute Life took off through easy to use productivity tools and methodologies (which she has successfully instilled in her own life).

Allyson’s passion is showing people how to make time to live in alignment with what is most important to them. The 7 Minute Life helps busy people get their schedules under control so they have more time for “the good stuff” in life. Because life should be full of endless joy, not endless tasks.

Since inventing The 7 Minute Life, Allyson has delivered more than 10,000 hours of researching, development of methodologies and proprietary content, writing, speaking, coaching and training. She has delivered hundreds of presentations to companies like Walmart, Kellogg’s, Pitney Bowes, Morgan Stanley, Blue Cross Blue Shield, the Arkansas Bar Association, and many more.

Her five books have sold more than 130,000 copies, and her time management tools have been downloaded more than hundreds of thousands of times.

Allyson has appeared on CNN, Bloomberg Information Television, ABC Radio, Fast Company, Real Simple, Woman’s Day, Women’s World, Family Circle, Investor’s Business Daily, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, and many more.
