Inner Peace

I have been listening to you guys for a few years now and I always gain immense value from listening.
TK is an outstanding addition Malabama never fails to make me smile with her infectious laughter and I always look forward to Ryan’s drop-ins.
I know my week is going to be a good one when I hear the words,”Love people and use things, because the opposite never works.”
These words literally bring me peace. Thank you for your time, your observations and just being yourselves.

Happy Birthday Ryan

I subscribe to The Minimalists Private Podcast, it has brought me immense help and I would encourage anyone who is curious about minimalism to check it out.

The podcasts delves well beyond having less stuff…

Changed the way I live life

I’ve been listening to Josh and Ryan since episode 1 and their story instantly resonated with me. I’ve been following their journey for years and they have added immense value to my life. I don’t always agree with their opinions but I always try to listen with an open mind.

Overall, I can’t recommend this podcast enough.
