Joshua Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus were your typical rich playboys—lots of money, big houses, expensive cars and everything they could wish for, except happiness apparently. So they left their six-figure incomes and simplified: less money + less stuff = more meaning.
Their blog chronicles their search for meaning and has gained the attention of news outlets like NPR and Forbes, along with more than two million followers. The Boston Globe said of their latest book, Everything that Remains, it’s “like Henry David Thoreau, but with Wi-Fi.”
Millburn and Nicodemus tout advice such as, “Minimalists search for happiness not through things, but through life itself."
The Minimalists will stop by Weller Book Works on April 15 to share Everything that Remains with Salt Lake City.
The long-time friends will discuss their journey and aspects of the minimalist lifestyle, including: the myth of “keeping up with the Joneses,” how you can de-clutter and not miss your stuff, and why “find your passion” is not the great advice we all think it is.
