How Minimalism Is Changing Entrepreneurship

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Monday 11th March, 2013

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

People can earn a living doing what they love. We've all heard this before. But most people don't realize they don't need to earn as much money as they think to live contently. And with the fear-of-money obstacle out of the way, entrepreneurship becomes far more achievable—far realer.

Bestselling author Joshua Becker of Becoming Minimalist has teamed up with Bestselling authors Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus of The Minimalists and Courtney Carver of Be More With Less to show people that they can live more meaningful lives while earning considerably less money. Their inspiration, personal stories, and practical application steps will inspire others to finally pursue their passions.

After all, you don't have to live your life fed-up with your career; you needn't be stressed out by the rat race. Using the principles of minimalism, you can pursue your dream, make less money, and live a more meaningful life at the same time.
