A Simple Approach to Living With Less

FREE Ebook: The Minimalist Within


What is The Minimalist Within?

–  A guidebook to help you get started on a journey toward minimalism
–  A conversation starter to introduce minimalism to people
–  A tool to determine your personal “why” for minimalism
–  A reminder of the reasons we pursue less in order to discover more
–  A method for learning to ask the right questions

What The Minimalist Within Is NOT:

This is not a How-To book on clutter and organization. Cleaning out the clutter in your home is definitely an important piece of the puzzle. However, I have chosen to focus more on the “why” of minimalism in this book.  The “how” of minimalism is secondary, but I’ll provide some basic steps to get you started.

This is not a book telling you that your life choices are wrong. I am not here to tell you that if you’re not living a minimalist lifestyle then you are ruining your life. I am here to explain how minimalism can be achieved and why you might find it helpful.

This book is not a “one-size fits all” description of minimalism. Not everyone will pursue minimalism in the same way. My version of radical change may not be the same as your version. The journey to minimalism is a personal one, but the foundational truths provide a common ground to build upon.


Why Is It Free?

Honestly, I was torn about whether to charge for the book for not. Often people place little value of things that are given free of charge. I settled on not charging for this book because I’m hoping it will reach more people that way. I wish I had heard about minimalism and the benefits it could provide me and my family a long time ago. If a resource like The Minimalist Within can be readily available to someone curious about pursuing a life of less, then I don’t want a fee to stand in their way.

This book is also in celebration of my site relaunch. So consider it a gift from me to you. I’m not requiring you to sign up or subscribe to anything in order to download the book. I do have a lot of exciting new things coming this year including the release of a more in-depth book on minimalism for families. Subscribing is a great way to stay in the loop.
