Man Quits $80K Job to Work in Grocery Store Part Time - Minimalism

Published on Oct 22, 2015 1,837,715 views

Yves quit his job even though he had it all: a big salary, health benefits and a pension plan. He sold his downtown condo, too. Why did he decide to drastically simplify his life? Because he was unhappy and unfulfilled. A couple of years ago, he went on a 10-day silent retreat and, after much soul-searching, realized that his job and his stressful lifestyle needed to go. Now, a year and a half later, he's living a minimalist lifestyle in a small bachelor apartment, riding his bike to work, and working 3 days a week at a grocery store. He has more time to spend with the people he loves, and a lot less stress. Does he regret his downshifting decision? Watch this video to find out!

Thanks for watching!

  • Saru2191
    Saru2191 Год назад @moussaemad The US medical system is exceptional, it's flaw is that it costs a lot of money which can screw you over if you're not under private insurance. For example, Canadians will brag about their free health care, yet many cross over to US for treatment the moment they experience a serious illness or injury. Canadian health care may be free, but you get what you pay for.
  • Anthropos Anthropos
    Anthropos Anthropos Год назад yeah the people who go to the states for treatment just tend to be the rich people who have non -emergent issues and they want to pay for faster treatment/diagnostics.

    GUNZ 3 недели назад After taxes your left with 66,000 yearly expenses for your vehicle, food , home -20000 that's also bot including any fun activities only basic essentials now your left with 46,000 Now if you managed to not get a Starbucks or going to a restaurant for 11 years you would have only acquired 505,000 from 11 years Say you're now in your 40s , average life expectancy is 75 . 75-40=35yrs to spend 505,000, divide by 35 =14,428 a yr So if living off 14,428 yr wont even cover your basic expenses you will have to live in a small 1 bedroom with no phone, internet,vehical or cable to be able to survive off of 505,000
  • Gamana
    Gamana 3 недели назад Actually, mobility at the top of of the ladder where people actually save their money and quit in 5 to 10 years would help everyone else too. A lot of the job problem we have now is old people sticking to a job and blocking the upward mobility of the next generation. Saving money up and retiring early is about the best thing that those that have made it can do for those who want to get to that point.

  • Peter M
    Peter M 2 месяца назад I had the same issue awhile back, i was working too much and stuck in the corporate hierarchy with little progress up.. High pay, high stress but in the end Corporate politics was the cause of all my sorrow. I quit everything and launched my own consulting business. I work 20 hours a week.I make an Average salary. I wake up at 11 every day and go to bed at 2.. I play video games before visiting a client. Never been happier. Whatever people say, never stop educating yourself.. Education is the only way out of any situation..If you don't have any skills, it might be difficult to just drop everything.. Focus on getting good at stuff, get expertise and knowledge in certain fields.. Even if you have to live in your parent's basement, take that time to specialize in something you can monetize!

  • cjtvtube
    cjtvtube 3 недели назад Ok, reality check. You can't just work at a grocery store 3 days a week and live like he does now. 1.) He worked 11 years at a high paying job where he most likely saved quite a large nest egg. 2.) He has no wife and more importantly no children. He had no wife or children while working his high paying job which allowed him to save. Most likely his nest egg is invested, it generates income + his grocery store income is enough to live. Don't graduate high school thinking you can jump into a 3 day a week grocery store job and think you can live... and, this channel/video should be much more informative on that.

    Apex 1 месяц назад @Joe Tyson definitely I agree albeit from each person's perspective comes a difference in happiness and joy depending on their ability to see the good for what it is and the bad as a less worrying thing

    Rock Tulip 4 недели назад Well, what I always take it as that time is limited, however money is not. But everyone should do what they want in life; everyone wants different things either advancing their career to become rich, or working at a grocery store making enough money, but more time on your hands (usually?) - Do what ever makes you happy.

    Big Bad Bandana 2 года назад BigD Travels so? If he doesnt need to work more, why would he? You're missing the point of the video. The point is that he gave up chasing more money to live a more fullfilling live. If his job doesnt pay well or if he doesnt have a mortgage is completely irrelevant.

  • Charles Thomson
    Charles Thomson 2 года назад Test Test 80k annually won't get you there quick
  • Test Test
    Test Test 2 года назад Charles Thomson That is because it depends on his take-home income profits(pay), 80k salary pre-tax income doesn't really give us a good indicator. Of course, it depends on what lifestyle an individual plans to live. A smart person doesn't have to use their own income to make a success in life, I thought people knew that.
  • Charles Thomson
    Charles Thomson 2 года назад Test Test It's called Net pay. The next part you're hinting at is called leverage. Worked great for almost all of the 1920's.
  • Test Test
    Test Test 2 года назад Where does it say net pay. If you can link me the reference to see such a significant figure to be rounded up so perfectly well under tax deduction. It would be great to know how you arrived to the conclusion. Well, you make it sound like it's impossible.

  • Charles Thomson
    Charles Thomson 2 года назад Test Test You wrote his "take-home income profits(pay)". That's called Net. Then, like a poor person, you said a smart person doesn't have to use their own income. So unless you're talking about living in your mothers basement, that's called leverage, and it means you're living above your means and can forget about an early retirement.
