Talk For Hope: Turning Loneliness into a Business

cuddleWhen I meet a person, I’m anxious to know their story. What do they stand for? How has their life experience shaped them? I met Samantha through this article in Business Insider and her story is worth telling. She is a professional hugger. She hugs people for $60/hour and makes $7200 a month. Soon she is opening a retail shop where she will certify Huggers in a 40 hour course. Oh, the stories she must hear! I’ll bet her next venture is to write a book about her hugging history! Samantha created a business cuddleuptome to meet one of her own needs: to be hugged, loved, accepted after being out of a relationship for 13 years.

How are you meeting your own needs in your line of work?
