Want to simplify your life? You can get advice from The Minimalists, two friends who blog and write about simplicity, when they appear at Brazos Bookstore on Tuesday to promote their new memoir, Everything That Remains.
The Minimalists Joshua Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus
The Minimalists are Joshua Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, childhood buddies who, in 2010, founded TheMinimalists.com. The site now gets around 2 million visitors a year, and offers lessons on things like solitude, volunteerism, the importance of community and other aspects of a more meaningful life.
But before the site began there was just Joshua Millburn, who was undergoing a quarter-life crisis. About five years ago, at the age of 27, he was the youngest director at his telecommunications company, making six figures. Then, in the span of a month, his mother died and his marriage ended.
