February 8, 2011. I'm a firm believer that it doesn't take a lot of money to be happy. I don't need an expensive gym membership to stay in shape any more than I need designer clothes to stay warm. As for hobbies, a good sketchbook will last you a long time and pencils are pretty cheap. I suppose one of the main reasons I never got into advertising was that my campaign slogans probably wouldn't sell. No one wants a product with a description "cheap and good." Well, now that I think about it, that just might attract a person like me.
