Episode 99: Being Anti-capitalist with Bear Hebert
I’m thrilled to be talking with Bear Hebert today. They are an anti-capitalist business coach and radical consultant and social justice educator. Bear also has a side hustle teaching men how to unlearn patriarchal bad behaviour. I just love Bear’s work, I am so glad they are here. Last year I purchased Freely – Bear’s anti-capitalist guide to pricing and it was SO helpful and educational – I learned A LOT! I really hope you enjoy this episode.
So what’s this episode really about?
- Bear talks about how we can make a decent living as a self employed person and still do right in the world.
- They also talk about their own relationship with money.
- Capitalism based on paradox you cannot win–keep growing and you can never have enough – we talk through all the alternatives: sustainability and reciprocity and where abundance appears in all this.
- Bear offers real, practical advice on your relationship with money when following anti-capitalist values.
Why you should listen
Most of us who are self-employed will at some point face our relationship with money. Sometimes that’s a bit like wrestling an octopus because you start to see that there are tentacles everywhere–in our family ancestral story, our self-worth, relationship to the planet, what we value, systems of oppression. Bear gives real, honest and practical advice on how your business can better serve your clients with an anti-capitalist lens.
