Had a very interesting talk yesterday with a guy called Miguel.
Miguel is the antithesis of people like me.
He lives in a house that he built with his own two hands, he’s 61 and hasn’t worked for a boss – always self-employed – in almost 40 years
He’s what hippies turn into when they grow up, I suppose.
We talked a bit about marketing and ethics – evidently he’s quite the skeptic, and I agree with most of his complaints against the industry.
But the funny thing is that the one thing that has enabled him to survive for 40 years on his own terms, without working for a boss, is exactly same thing that I use in my work.
