Ditching the Clutter to Go for Your Dreams
Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus are minimalists, meaning they declutter their lives from material possessions to make room for what's really important. In talks that will make you laugh, cry, and re-think how you're living, this duo shares the radical notion that when things aren't satisfying you, you can opt-out of the excess culture we live in. From simple living and decluttering to digital clutter, workplace minimalism, and personal relationships, their talks will make you think: what do you value? Are you truly chasing your dreams? And most of all, what do the things you own mean to you?
The Minimalists provide a template for how to live a fuller, more meaningful life by having less
In their new book, Love People, Use Things: Because the Opposite Never Works, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus aka THE MINIMALISTS move past simple decluttering to show how minimalism makes room to reevaluate and heal the seven essential relationships in our lives: stuff, truth, self, money, values, creativity, and people. They use their own experiences―and those of the people they have met along the minimalist journey―to provide a template for how to live a fuller, more meaningful life.
Love People was an instant New York Times bestseller and follows up the duo’s other bestselling books Minimalism, As a Decade Fades, Everything That Remains, and Essential. The Minimalists are leaders in the movement to remove unfulfilling and unpractical aspects of life in order to live a life more full of value. Through their podcast, blog, and Netflix specials they have cultivated a following about 20 million strong. The Minimalists are committed to spread the gospel of minimalism to help better society and teach people how they can best incorporate minimalist principles in their life. Their talks are a blend of theory, practice, and entertainment, and are accessible to any audience.
The Minimalists are starring in a Netflix documentary called Less Is Now
There is a reason why Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan are called The Minimalists: In today's day and age where you can have any object delivered to your door immediately, they're urging society to take a step back and really think about why we collect what we have. In their speeches, they bring the topics of their popular Netflix documentaries to audiences, speaking about a wide array of topics, from simple living and decluttering to digital clutter, workplace minimalism, personal relationships, and living a meaningful life.
Following the success of their first film Minimalism, they are starring in another Netflix documentary called Less Is Now. The film shows their lives as minimalists and discusses their philosophy that when things aren't satisfying you, you can go against the culture and stop buying it.
