In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, Joshua and Ryan discuss financial independence, spending habits, and solving money problems with filmmaker Travis Shakespeare, and they answer the following questions:

  • How do I pay off debt when I’m only earning enough money to pay for life’s essentials?
  • How do I save and invest with the earnings from a minimum-wage job?
  • Is financial independence necessary for a minimalist, and, if so, what is the first baby step toward that journey?
