Millennials, Restart Your Life in a Small Town
28 Jul 2020
You can still achieve the authentic, meaningful, and sustainable life you want. You’ll just have to move first.
Let me explain.
In July 2015, my wife sprang a proposition on me: She wanted us to move from the famously trendy Asheville to Yanceyville, North Carolina.
“No way,” I thought. I was very reluctant.
Asheville is a city of 92,000 in a metro area of 425,000. Yanceyville is a small speck on the map of about 2,000 residents.
Asheville is a very attractive town for millennials like us. Its culture has been compared to Austin. It’s been referred to as the “San Francisco of the South.”
