Multi-tasking on Ibiza

April 8th, 2009 - 4:07 pm Posted in ibiza | Comments (0)

There is no simple answer to the question, what do you do on Ibiza? Hair stylists run employment agencies, your Spanish teacher might also be a club promoter, your waiter a lawyer. Job snobs are rare. People happily turn their hand to labouring, painting, cleaning houses, and working in sweaty bars or cramped cloakrooms. Crucially, no one who succeeds arrives with the notion that anything is owed them. They are happier, more generous people for it. Creativity, rather than capitalism, is the underlying ethos.

Of course people come to make money, but even the rawest mercenaries are drawn by some element unique to Ibiza because, frankly, you can make a bigger fortune, more easily, elsewhere. Ibiza appeals to the modern day adventurers, pirates and corsairs who are happy to put known lands behind them and point their nose towards whatever lies over the horizon. This ensures that whatever the vagaries of the markets, Ibiza has a robust, flexible, creative economy. We think the rest of the world is ready to learn Ibiza‘s secrets, so we convened a virtual round-table discussion on the island’s multi-tasking culture, its benefits and what it takes to succeed.
