Have you ever dreamed about leaving your high-profile corporate job and spending your days outside instead, trying to make the world a better place?
Dylan Ratigan actually did it last June. He left his successful, eponymous MSNBC show, and New York City, behind him, moved to the country outside San Diego, and invested the earnings from his most recent book (along with a loan from Whole Foods) to build a 30,000-square-foot high-yield hydroponic organic greenhouse. He’s going back online and on-air now to promote the new farm, in hopes of building it into a nationwide network that offers productive and socially positive employment to veterans.
