What I don’t get about hipster entrepreneurs.
How to not change the world.
I don’t get when hipsters say they “hated working for others” but then can’t wait to employ others to work for them.
I don’t get when hipsters set out to “change the world” but then come up with coffee, beer or socks.
Why do you want to do it alone?
Source of this non-sense: A documentary about anti-capitalism hipsters who started their own business. Asked about their mission they said they wanted to get rich…
Let’s give it some uplift.
First, I don’t think these entrepreneurs will get far unless they regard their ex-employers as anti-rolemodels and want to do it better instead.
Second, nothing wrong with a good espresso, but creativity and intelligence should be used to solve relevant problems.
Third, big problems are best solved in small groups. Why don’t we do it together?
