INTRODUCTION
Imagine a world where your lie isn’t dominated by the things you carry.The reedom that comes rom a closet that contains a handul o stylish clothes.One nice pair o shoes. You have the reedom o an uncluttered schedule. So you can pursue your dreams.Imagine i you could work rom anywhere, and move whenever you pleased.Imagine i you didn’t have to do housework every single weekend. You would neverorget where your glasses are, because you know where everything is instictively.This world exists, you just have to go nd it.I rmly believe that being minimalist is the answer to many o your questions.I know this because it is the lie I live every day.This e-book is my minimalist story.I hope that it helps you nd the answers.

In July 2009, I quit my job and moved across the country to Portland. I had everything I owned onmy back and $3000 in my bank account.I had no plan, no job lined up. It was the middle o the Great Recession. Everyone told me that Ishouldn’t do it, that it’d be impossible. I’d ail and end up bankrupt, hanging out under the Inter-state with Portland’s large, hippy homeless community.But I didn’t ail, I thrived. This is the story o my minimalist success. It wasn’t easy, but it was pos-sible.Since then, I’ve ound that I can live wherever I want. I’ve been to Seattle, Chicago, and back toBrooklyn. I’m planning to head out to Berkeley in May.This e-book is about how I live this lie.The secret is that being minimalist opens a lot o doors automatically. You just have to ree up the mind-space rom sorting your stamp collection and hauling around the boxes ull o books you’ve already read. When you do, you start to realize that every person on thisplanet can be much reer than they are, they just have to let themselves take the journey.There were only three primary choices I made to leave my job.1, I had to have less than 100 things.2, I had to give up consumerism and cook all o my own ood.3, I had to learn to work on the Internet.The rst two are covered comprehensively in this e-book. The 3rd is another story completely, andperhaps my next e-book will be on the topic.This e-book is a chronicle o my minimalist philosophy or success. Within, I go over in great detailmy minimalist philosophy towards lie. I hope you’ll give it a read.
