We’ve got another big podcast host on The School of Greatness today.

He doesn’t host a business podcast. It’s not about fitness and optimum health. But it is about mental health and lifestyle.

Joshua Fields Millburn is the co-founder of The Minimalists, which has become a hugely popular podcast and lifestyle in the past few years.

I’ve always considered myself a pretty minimal guy with a clean, simple style.

After talking to Joshua though, I started to re-evaluate even my own purchasing decisions and what actually serves me.

Joshua has a pretty amazing story of transitioning from a workaholic, deep in debt, unhappy life full of “stuff” to living with less than 300 items to his name.

He doesn’t even need Internet in his house or data on his phone -- even though he runs an online business.

I was fascinated by our entire conversation and what Joshua has learned from leading this movement.

One of the things I noticed right away was how calm, happy and content he is. And we can all use more of that.

Get ready to re-think your relationship with stuff and how it serves you in Episode 407 with Joshua Fields Millburn.
