Found this interesting video on Good.is about the 5c architect who when faced without a job, turned to a market stall doling out advice at a nickel a time. As well as keeping the momentum his nickel business, he has been able to earn $50,000 a year from his customers willing to pay more. He also tried to keep business local – referring other professionals in his locality.
In this yellow-pack economic chasm, could we move this idea into other places? Are there certain professions that this idea would lend itself to?
