Suelo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Daniel James Shellabarger (known as Daniel Suelo, or simply Suelo, born 1961) is an American simple living adherent who stopped using money in the autumn of 2000.[1] He was born in Arvada, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, and currently lives part-time in a cave near Moab, Utah when he is not wandering the country.[1]

Suelo gained notoriety in October 2009 when his profile appeared in the US men's style print magazine Details.[2] This story was picked up by websites such as The Guardian in the UK,[3]The Huffington Post,[4] and Matador Change.[5] He was also interviewed for the BBC in September 2009,[6] by The Denver Post[7] in November 2009, and the Brazilian INFO[8] in November 2009. His story has since been repeated by many websites and news agencies around the world. Suelo was the subject of a 2006 video profile entitled Moneyless in Moab (2006), by Gordon Stevenson[9] and a 2009 video profile entitled Zero Currency (2009), by Brad Barber[10] as well as being featured on KBYU's Beehive Stories (2010), also by Brad Barber.[11] His biography, The Man Who Quit Money, was written by Mark Sundeen and published by Riverhead/Penguin in 2012. Suelo states he is not accepting proceeds from the book. A short film about Suelo, narrated by Mark Sundeen, is on BBC News Online.[12]

Suelo is one of a number of individuals who voluntarily live without money. These also include Heidemarie Schwermer, Mark Boyle and Tomi Astikainen.[13][14][15] Suelo appeared as a guest writer on Mark Boyle's blog in January 2011.[16]

The Rise of the New Contract Worker

The Rise of the New Contract Worker | THRILLING FACTORS | Scoop.it

More and more people are choosing a contingent work style — that is, temporary work that may be project-based or time-based — over full-time or part-time work. Temporary placement service provider Adecco predicts that the rate of growth in contingent workers will be three to four times the growth rate among traditional workforces, and that they eventually will make up about 25% of the global workforce.

 

One reason for the increasing popularity of contingent work is involuntary: not everyone can find full-time employment. But, intriguingly, more and more people are choosing a contingent work style.

 

Some contingent workers say they are seeking better work/life balance; others want to create or design their own careers by choosing the kind of work or projects that create a unique set of skills, making them more desirable prospective employees. Contingent employment can expose individuals to a broad variety of challenges, demanding constant learning and new skills, which make work more interesting for them.

 

Often, contingent workers say that it was their full-time employment experience that convinced them to strike out on their own. Research published by Rosalind Bergemann in 2010 among workers who voluntarily chose to become independent reveals that 74% of respondents cited a lack of employer engagement as their principal reason for leaving.

 

New technologies and services for contingent workers make it easier and less painful to make the choice to go independent. New types of talent brokers such as YourEncore, an online network of retired and veteran scientists and engineers, or InnoCentive, which offers crowdsourcing services to companies with innovation challenges, connect free agents with project-based work in virtual marketplaces. The lack of benefits such as health and life insurance and disability benefits has been an ongoing major deterrent to contingent work, but even that situation is changing. Insurance and other benefits can be obtained from organizations such as the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE) at highly competitive rates. Axiom Legal offers its members continuity of benefits when they are between assignments.

Contingent workers can add to an organization's intellectual capacity and provide instant expertise as needed.
