Who is Daniel Suelo? And why does he matter?
Daniel Suelo, originally known as Daniel Shellabarger, decided one day to live without the use of money. He walked away from everything that had to do with money his house, cars, bills, and even his family. He now lives in a cave located in Moad, Utah. To eat, he goes through trash cans and dumpsters looking for edible food or relies on the gifts from a friend, a family member, or even a stranger. Another way to find food is in the area around the cave he lives in, he searches for growing foods such as berries and vegetables. He will even eat road kill. This is just many of the things he does to survive in a world that is ruled and run with money.
Over the time he has spent living without money, Daniel Suelo has grown to be important to a lot of people because they admire his determination to stick to his beliefs and values. People look at him and might see a genius because no one else has the guts or courage to try it his way willingly. The thought of living without money scares a lot of people, so they would never try to live without money just as Daniel has done. So unintentionally or intentionally, Daniel has inspired people to think what their life would be like if they ever decided to make their life one without money. Some have even decided to follow in his footstep knowing that it would be a hard transformation in their lives.
