The Number One Lesson of Minimalism

We’ve learned more than we ever dreamed throughout our journey into minimalism. Likewise during our tour stops. And we’re still learning. But the most important lesson we’ve learned is that minimalism appeals to only one group of people: people with an open mind.

During our coast-to-coast travels, we’ve experienced a diversity textbook of people from every walk of life. Thousands of folks have attended our meetups, from factory workers to former CEOs, from attorneys to stand-up comics, from eleven-year-old boys to 83-year-old great-grandmothers, from every ethnicity to every socioeconomic background, from high school dropouts to college professors, from marathon runners to people struggling to lose weight, from single moms to parents bringing their teenagers to hear us speak.

Minimalism is applicable to anyone. Anyone with an open mind, that is. We’re all searching for more meaningful lives. You are not alone.
