Porcupine was of the younger generation than all the other business owners in his area. Since becoming a business owner himself he decided that his business wouldn’t be like any other in town. But before he mixed things up and went the path of a rebel he thought long and hard about whether he could commit to such a title and if being a business rebel was something that had to be done for his business. Knowing that rebelling just for the sake of it would lead to disaster he weighed each option and knew, finally, that his business could only run with a rebel behind the wheel.
