Cultural Capital 

Everything you have gained in life. 

The muscle mass you build.

The artwork and books you collect.

The knowledge you acquire. 

It is hard to transfer into financial terms, but your life’s work has value.

 Keep growing!

Cashier Diary #2

I meet a lot of people each day. Around 250, on average, per day. They come from all over the world. Although I am aware that this is a limited sample, it does give me some insight into people as a whole. I have small interactions with around 50 of the 250 people I meet. 80% of them are friendly and engaging. 15% are indifferent. 5% are hostile.
