Jobs you never knew existed

Posted on December 5, 2008


I have a friend who has made the lifestyle choice to drop out of industrialized society as we know it. He lives deep in the Appalachian hills of southeast Ohio on a small farm tucked between two tall ridges. For the past couple years he has been making a living by farming worm poop to sell to gardeners. More recently he has expanded out to bat guano. Look for his products in the Whole Foods in Columbus, Ohio. Matt is by no means wealthy, he eats simply and when he has a truck it is old and unreliable. Matt is also happy and doesn’t need to get up at 6am unless he chooses to do so. He is an extremely talented musician and picks up a few dollars here and there by taking requests.
