“Be sure you really want this. Both acupuncture and social entrepreneurship are not things you can do on the side; they require real focus and commitment. Certain kinds of work you have to love enough to do for their own sake. Don’t be romantic or dreamy about it, really be honest with yourself about how much you like to work. If you don’t like to work, find something easier. If you do like to work, that’s perfect, because there’s an endless amount of it here.”

An excerpt taken from an interview with Lisa Rohleder, founder of Working Class Acupuncture and the Community Acupuncture movement, by “No Country for Young (& Old) Women”.
