New eBook! The Radical Minimalist: From Regular to Radical, 47 Ways to Take Your Life to the Edge

This is your life. Live it the way you see fit.

There comes a time in your life when your stuff just overwhelms you.

There’s also a time in your life when your life overwhelms you.

Whether it’s your current lifestyle or school of thought that is not allowing your true potential to shine, let me offer you a few tips on how to be radical:

  • Be you.
  • Speak with confidence in what you passionately believe in, in life, work, or otherwise.
  • But first, have something to believe in.
  • Take action to get to where you need to be happy.
  • And stop doing what you hate.
  • Stake those vampires in your life that only brings you down.
  • Speak out for causes you believe in.
  • Give more than you take.
  • Ignore the haters and surround yourself with people who believe in you.
  • Don’t settle.
  • Choose not to please others.
  • Instead, choose to live your own life.
  • Be unapologetic for the person you are and the choices you need to make.
  • Stand firm.
  • Be bold.
  • Be courageous.
  • Take risks.
  • Overcome the 3 fears.
  • Embrace opportunity.
  • Challenge gatekeepers.
  • Or, just jump over the gate entirely.
  • Do it.

And if it’s more of a tendency to hoard, attach the very essence of who you are to your possessions, shop habitually, own far more than you will ever need in your life and have an increasing amount of clutter that is growing right before your very eyes, allow me to offer you some tips on how to be more minimalist:

  • Consume less.
  • Buy less.
  • Own less.
  • Get rid of your TV.
  • Stop shopping out of habit.
  • Start over.
  • Donate all your clothes.
  • Donate all your books.
  • .
  • Sell your house.
  • Let go.
  • And be free.

Of course, there is much more to it than the abbreviated list I provided.

How much more? A lot more. So much more that I wrote a 116-page ebook with over 22,000 words in it, dedicated to what it means to be a radical minimalist.

Not all radicals will be minimalists and not all minimalists will be radicals. This book will show you what it means to be both.

Extraordinary Praise from Extraordinary People

Minimalism is in and of itself a radical endeavor. You can try and be minimalist and keep it all, but that defeats the point. You can’t have your junk and be free too. In this revolutionary book, Nina Yau shows you how to make controversial decisions in order to free your life from consumerism. – Everett Bogue of Far Beyond the Stars

I’m not a minimalist. You might not be either. That’s okay, but don’t let the fact you’re not a minimalist keep you from hearing Nina’s broader message, “live life radically, on your own terms.” Her intensity & zest for life are so contagious in The Radical Minimalist that you can’t help but catch it.  - Joel Runyon of Blog of Impossible Things

Nina Yau has quickly become one of my favorite bloggers for her incredible positivity — a kind of undeniable cheerfulness evident in both her blog and in every single part of this 116-page book. The brilliant thing, I think, is that it makes sense. Read this book, digest it fully and you’ll see exactly why she’s become such a strong, happy person. – Matt Madeiro of Three New Leaves

Just as what Nina wrote in one of her topics – the world we did not imagine – “being authentic means you are true to yourself and others. Go out there and practice it.” Every single idea that Nina wrote in her e-book – she not only embraces it, she practices it. This e-book comes truthfully from the bottom of Nina’s heart. – Jonathan Chan

The Big Question: Why?

I wrote this book in an attempt to bridge the understanding of not just knowing how to live simply by ways of reducing clutter and consumption, but to also shape our thinking in a way that is outside the box, one that does not blindly adhere to societal standards and “best practices,” and one that challenges the norm and the average that most people live by.

I did not want this to be “just another minimalist book.” I wanted it to be a tool in which the reader can use in order to motivate them and inspire them to radically change their thinking and lifestyle for the better. There will be crazy, outlandish ideas, tips and strategies in this book. But understand that outlandish or radical thoughts are all just relative to the person.

For some folks, the ideas presented in the book will make complete sense. For others, it might make them extremely uncomfortable. Take what you can, adapt it to your current situation and be prepared to change your life.

    I don’t know how I just found you. You freaking rock! People tell me I’m an extreme minimalist for many of the reasons you describe in your book, but after a while, getting rid of your junk doesn’t feel so extreme does it? Then, it’s just part of an awesome radical life. :)
