Business man gives it up for the simple life

Former businessman lives on no money for a year

A businessman gave up his career to live on no money for a year after becoming disillusioned with consumerism.

Mark Boyle said giving up his job, possessions and money to live the life of a pauper in a rusty old caravan was the best decision he has ever made.

The 30-year-old has vowed to continue with his money-free life for good, adding: "It’s been fantastic. I never really knew how much stress and worry money brought to my life until I was free of it.

“People often ask me if I miss my old world... stress, traffic jams, bank statements, utility bills... why would I miss any of that? Now I’ve tasted life without money I never want to go back to the way I lived before.”

  1. I did this for a year in the 70's. Some of the best memories of my life. Living daily on miracles. Then I became a father, and got seduced back into the world of money. Now I am getting back to basics, living outside of time( past and future is not where I am alive) and a new way of dealing with trade. Was inspired by "seek ye first the kingdom of Heaven and all else shall be provided" Christians would look at me and say " What! you actually applied that in your life? The miracle of life is in every moment.....
