The Minimalists Announce First Ever New Zealand Show

The Minimalists Announce First Ever New Zealand Show



What if everything you ever wanted isn’t what you actually want?

TEG DAINTY & Nice Events are thrilled to announce the first New Zealand show of The Minimalists; American authors, podcasters, filmmakers and public speakers. Joshua & Ryan will present an in-depth talk about minimalism and record a live version of their wildly successful podcast series The Minimalists Podcast.
Auckland - Saturday March 17 - Ellerslie Events Centre

Tickets and VIP packages available from www.tegdainty.com
When they were twenty something, suit clad and upwardly mobile, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus (both now aged 36) thought they had everything anyone could ever want…until they didn't want any of it anymore.

By the time they were 28, they had everything they thought they wanted:
“the six-figure salary, the luxury cars, the designer clothes, the big suburban house with more toilets than people” - The New York Magazine

When Joshua was blindsided by the loss of his mother and his marriage and Ryan was faced with crippling debt and depression, they began questioning every aspect of the lives they had built for themselves. Then they discovered a lifestyle known as MINIMALISM – and everything began to change.

In the pursuit of looking for something more substantial than compulsory consumption and the broken American Dream, Joshua and Ryan both walked away from six figure careers and embarked on a new journey.

“We’re not talking about an easy life, but a simple one”

Since embracing simplicity as a lifestyle, they have written three books, including the best selling memoir, Everything That Remains, launched a #1 Podcast, cofounded Asymmetrical Press, a publishing house for the indie at heart, embarked on a 100 city international speaking tour and spoken at Harvard Business School, Apple, SXSW, TEDx and many other organisations and conferences. Their new film Minimalism: A Documentary About The Important Things, was the #1 indie documentary of 2016.

Joshua and Ryan have garnered an audience of more than four million readers at their website, Theminimalists.com where they write about living a meaningful life with less stuff. Their story has been featured in Time Magazine, People, Forbes, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, LA Weekly and several other outlets.
