Our guest today will challenge you to believe that you actually have more by owning less. In a society where marketers are screaming “MORE” at us from ever direction, how do we push back and uncover the life that’s waiting for us be clearing out the clutter and owning less?
Today we’re talking to one of the leading voices in the modern day simplicity movement, Joshua Becker. Joshua shares his story about how he first encountered minimalism and the things its taught him along the way. He’ll share how minimizing your spaces will open the door to freedom, productivity and success.

Since being introduced to minimalism 8 years ago, Joshua has written multiple books and appeared on several national media outlets to share the benefits he and others have experienced by embracing minimalism.
