Pathetic

By msearslive - Jan 14 2019

I have to say that these two “prophets” caught me hook, line and sinker - at first. Much like many of the other reviews; phrases such as “drudge through the drudgery” and “add value” and many more are phrases I thought were noteworthy and “meaningful” at first. Annnnd then I realized these guys were in this for a business and the money. They are not in this to help others. You should hear the way they talk about the listeners on their “private” podcasts on Patreon. They TOTALLY trash talk anyone who isn’t giving them money. They literally refer to you as “free-loaders” and “fake fans.” Don’t believe me? Pay for a month and listen to their Patreon podcast. It is DISGUSTING how little they care for the ACTUAL meaning of what they claim to be their cause and mission in life. I would highly recommend that you approach this podcast with a mentality of extreme caution!

I have been following The Minimalist’s for about a year and a half now. I eagerly listen to each new podcast episode almost every Tuesday since last July and find myself catching up on the older episodes in between. I find their conversations very relaxing to listen to and easy to relate to my own life. Both Josh and Ryan are intriguing individuals and I love their outlooks. I continuously strive to find meaning in my day to day routine, relationships, items, and add and subtract accordingly thanks to them. I have gained so much value from their books, podcasts, website (including Bec’s website, MinimalWellness.com), and their Netflix documentary. I’m very thankful for all these guys do!
