the 'corporate marketer' part does feel gross, but at the same time: people who don't have the luxury of making a living from their mystic passions should still be encouraged to fully express that part of their lives, no?

i'd bet that this guy thinks of his 'corporate marketer' self as a chore he just has to do, and the Reader part is his authentic self he wants to be.

a lot of us (myself very much included) feel the same way!
