For several years, I’ve been able to answer that one with one name: Nathan Mackenzie Brown. A (relatively) long-time resident at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, Nathan reached out to me a number of years ago about collaborating, and has served as an on-again/off-again mentor for me on the internet business front.
I know I’m not the only person impressed with Nathan’s ability to both wield a scythe and optimize a web site for the search engines, so I wasn’t surprised to see that Everett Sizemore (who’s also contributed to us) had published a very thorough profile of Nathan on his Living a Simple Life site. If you want to get a sense of how to shape your own life around your values – without starving or going broke – Nathan’s quite a model.
Know of other people making the most out of voluntary simplicity? Share their stories with us… we’re always intrigued!
