”I clearly remember one episode on my old job. Important clients were coming for a meeting so I got a razor from my boss, who told me to shave. It was a normal, short and nicely trimmed beard. But I did as I was told and I felled terrible. How can you judge a man on how good he is at his job by the size of his beard? I think that is one reason why I’m so extreme with my beard. I want to push thing. I hope to help others so that they can keep the beard they want. And things are changing. It is getting more and more accepted to have a bear. You see this in politics and in the business world as well. It is getting accepted to have a good beard.”
