Somewhere in between the stereotype and the truth
‘Hippies’ are often associated with a removal from ‘the real world’. They’re blissed out, unaware of the true realities of how our society actually functions. It’s all planting trees, doing sun salutations and blowing bubbles.
Often times their points of view are far left, viewing economic and political freedom as an evil — seeing it as the source of most of the world’s problems. The corporate drones must be stopped. Unrestricted wealth pollutes absolutely.
It’s as narrow-minded a view as the people and businesses they scorn. It’s still an either/or, black/white way to think. They’re saying economic gain and personal development can not co-exist together.
Do good and make money too.
An innerpreneur, however, understands that political and economic freedom is their tool for personal growth and for encouraging social and environmental responsibility. You can have your cake and eat it too.
Business isn’t bad or dirty, it just lacks meaning and purpose sometimes.
But things are changing. There are many of us optimistic creators sneaking around, quietly growing in numbers, getting fat and blissing this world out.
