About the author
Joe Dominguez was a key part of the Voluntary Simplicity movement. He championed the idea of curbing unnecessary consumption and encouraged a return to save your money. Dominguez grew up poor, but he became a financially successful Wall Street Analyst. He retired at the age of 31 and no longer worked for money from 1969 until his death in 1997.
Vicki Robin is an author and speaker who focuses on financial independence and reducing your environmental footprint. In addition to her work with Dominguez, Robin has worked on a model for how to reduce your reliance on food that isn’t local. Her second book after Your Money or Your Life chronicles her own experiences trying to only eat food that came from within 10 miles of her home on Whidbey Island.
