The World?s Second Oldest Profession Goes On-Line ECommerce Articles | October 16 Chauncey Gardner-Johnson Youth Jersey , 2008
The times they are a changin' is a common saying for my generation and how they have changed! Read this short, but insightful transitions story from Hippie to High Tech. It's a little sociological adventure that many of you may have taken yourselves.


I assume you know what the world?s oldest profession is so I will not illuminate further,? but few people know what the World?s Second Oldest profession is. I submit that it is the caravans of traders crisscrossing the landscape since time immortal on the silk road to far off destinations.






Up until recently, I defined my way of business (The Himalayan Traders) as the second oldest profession. I have been upholding caravan trading traditions that ended decades before I was born. The modern version of the caravan has come down to the Gypsy or Hippie Van filled with exotic goods.?






Around the mid-sixties when the sociological culture known as Hippies was being born Erik McCoy Youth Jersey , there was a great spiritually motivate migration to the Far East. To support this lifestyle innovative hippie entrepreneurs started importing all manner of Ethnic goods from the cultures of Asia.






This was the re-birth of the second oldest profession. Vans loaded with all manner counter culture products from Incense to Buddha Statues started to supply the lifestyle industry that was emerging from the hippie pop culture of those times.?






It was a good time for this creative product line and many of the van dwellers grew into full on business in their next incarnation. As hippie gave over to New Age, the whole industry slowly evolved into business as usual,.... or did it?






There are always a few individual who resist the flow of society and business as usual. I feel into that crack and I am just emerging now after 15 years of driving that van across 20000 miles and 25 states every year.






My motivation was lifestyle. I really liked traveling and taking lots of time to meditate in exotic ashram and sample world cultures. I didn?t want to have to be a 9 to 5 business marching along the work a day path to economic enlightenment. The money was always secondary.?






Time marched on and I finally had to come up with a new vision. I could not continue to resist the change in the fabric of society and here?s why: First, it?s been along time since Woodstock. I started doing this business in 1992 during a brief renaissance period of the second Hippie subculture primarily spirited on by the Grateful Dead band from the sixties and their following of Deadheads.






This era re-enlivened interest in hippie culture and gave The Himalayan Traders a great opening. We road that wave far beyond it?s crest and followed the rise and fall of many an alternative store nationwide. Our stores visited and service in those year number over 1000.






Slowly the pop culture shifted away from hippies stores Alvin Kamara Youth Jersey , away from bead stores, and even away from New Age stores to a very few outposts of alternative spirituality shops that were few and far between.






Another factor is the price of Gas and Hotels. It has skyrocketed on both fronts. As I got older sleeping in the van became less appealing and my wife simply refuses. What to do? Spend, spend, spend and there goes your profit margin.?






Along about 8 years ago we discovered Ebay and made our presence known with reasonably good success. We also got a basic website and struggled through all of the mishaps of bad designs and dysfunctional programs. Sound familiar? It was a tough learning curve.






Now with a baby on the way Marshon Lattimore Youth Jersey , we are ready to retire the van. A few of are old store accounts remain, but now our focus is on-line. The van sits in a lonely corner of the garage still shelved up and fully load for the store we still service, but now the epicenter of The Himalayan Traders resides in the back office with all of the latest programs and training videos awaiting this new frontier.






Quite honestly, I will miss those road adventures Tre'Quan Smith Youth Jersey , but every adventure has it?s advantages and disadvantages. Besides, with our new on-line presence we can service accounts everywhere in the global community and travel the fiber optic highway with our caravan of electrons.?






Creativity and change really define the human experience. Evolve or become extinct. I guess we?ll just have to ?keep on truckin? in the marketing form that befits this high tech era. Being on-line is the evolution revolution solution, so we might as well embrace it. See you in cyber-space!
