4) You have a blog - or words to that effect
Having a blog is quinteessential for the perfect yuccie. Not only is a blog a great tool for advertising for yourself and your work, it is also a great way to raise awareness and create a following. This way you have a communication channel that let's you brag about your talent, but also share your defeats on the way to financial, sustainable and creative freedom – the ultimate mission of the yuccie.

3) You live in a collective
Housing is one of the big challenges the world is facing with the massive urbanisation that takes place at the moment. The yuccie should try to work around this by living collectively, thus sharing resources in terms of food, space, money, water, heat, power etc.
Most of your furniture should be antique and/or DIY and/or salvaged from the waste room in your apartment building or similar. IKEA is a no-go.
Always go for quirky and/or sustainable and/or locally produced and/or second hand.
2) You give a fuck – about something
Giving a fuck means a lot to the yuccie. We can still make a difference in the world and the yuccie recognize this. Your something could be animal rights, Ethiopean refugees, the right to bear arms, childrens rights or the TTIP. Either way, you have a cause to fight for and you do so valiantly – if not, your probably not really a yuccie. The yuccie gives a fuck, and the fucks are given quite often.
1) You own a company
As yuccie is a combination of the words; young urban entrepreneur - obviously you have to own a company, your own company! However, in the aspirations of fully becoming a true yuccie, you could actually just be interning for a small start-up and try to make it to get some equity there. Preferrably though, you'll be running your own thing, billing your clients and making sure that you're your own boss and that you control your own destiny.
