I’m delighted 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.

Last year I purchased Freely – Bear’s anti-capitalist guide to pricing and it was SO helpful and educational – I learned loads. 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.  
  • We noodle on how capitalism is based on paradox you cannot win – endless productivity and 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 wresting 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 service your clients with an anti-capitalist lens.
