I’m a “millennial” guy living in the midwest of the USA. I’m married with one daughter, and another on the way. I work in business development for a digital marketing company. I like a good wine, wearing Birkenstocks, and hanging out with fun people.
Why Simple Living
I came to simple living through two different paths.
The first was to help overcome anxiety that I was having. Reading and implementing mindfulness practices was what brought me to approaching a more sustainable mindset.
The second was the financial route. Entering the adult world during the start of the Great Recession, I saw how many people were struggling, in part due to their overconsumption and lack of savings to help them weather the storm. This led me to learn more about financial independence and how to be more financially responsible.
