Life changing

Been listening for years. Changed my life. Knowing what I value and believe has made life not easier but clearer. Thank you, Josh and Ryan.

Super helpful.

I’m working on a “non-shopping/stop putting myself in debt” journey and this podcast and the Minimalists story has really been helping me SO MUCH with my shopping addiction. I do not consider myself a minimalist specifically, but I do learn so much from the concept and all of the advice given here. I am starting to look at my life and working on living intentionally. I have limited my social media usage, to the point where I have deleted my apps on my phone and am mildly annoyed when I DO allow myself to check in on my accounts. I’m feeling happier with myself with all of the changes I have made.
Thank you both for all you do and for the impact you’ve made in my life. 🥰
