The Minimalists: Less Is Now Tour

What if everything you ever wanted isn’t what you actually want?

When they were twenty-something, suit-clad, and upwardly mobile, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus thought they had everything anyone could ever want.

Until they didn’t want any of it anymore.

When Joshua was blindsided by the loss of his mother and his marriage, and Ryan was faced with crippling debt and depression, they began questioning every aspect of the lives they had built for themselves. Then they discovered a lifestyle known as minimalism—and everything began to change.

In the pursuit of looking for something more substantial than compulsory consumption and the broken American Dream, Joshua & Ryan both walked away from six-figure careers and embarked on a new journey. Since embracing simplicity as a lifestyle, they have written three books, including the bestselling memoir, Everything That Remains; launched a #1 podcast; cofounded Asymmetrical Press, a publishing house for the indie at heart; embarked on a 100-city international speaking tour; and spoken at Harvard Business School, Apple, SXSW, TEDx, WDS, NAPO, and many other organizations, schools, and conferences. Their new film, Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things, was the #1 indie doc of 2016.

Joshua & Ryan have garnered an audience of more than 4 million readers at their website, TheMinimalists.com, where they write about living a meaningful life with less stuff. Their story has been featured on the Today show and in Time magazine, People, Forbes, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Tribune, Seattle Times, Toronto Star, Globe & Mail, Vancouver Sun, Village Voice, L.A. Weekly, and numerous other outlets.

Both born in 1981 and raised in Dayton, Ohio, Joshua & Ryan now live in Missoula, Montana.
