Summary It's difficult to make it as an independent scientist. You have the freedom to study whatever you want, but don't have the financial security that comes with employment at a large institution. That's why Wallace "J" Nichols, founder of Ocean Revolution and research associate at the California Academy of Sciences, almost had to sell his home three months ago. Instead of searching for a full-time job with benefits, Nichols opted to continue his independent research--with a little help from his Blue Mind Tribe.
Description An inspiring story of the independent scientist, Wallace "J" Nichols. Financial difficulties did not stop him from pursuing his dreams. Why would he stop, when he can achieve his dreams through the public's help or now, commonly known as crowdfunding?
