I’ve never thought of the homeless as innovative or entrepreneurial. I suspect few do. Some might say these lost souls don’t have an enterprising bone in their bodies; if they did, they wouldn’t be homeless. I understand why people come to this conclusion; when they see the homeless, they see them sedentary – lingering in the streets, slouched on park benches, lying under blankets in alleys or crouched against buildings with cups in outstretched hands. My visit to Santa Barbara last week changed my mind about homeless ingenuity.
