We are all environmentalists because our future prosperity depends on the Earth.
In this post, we run through the many alternatives when it comes to sustainable investing. Investing is not a scary word. Investing means putting in capital (time, money or resource) to help something grow. As eco-warriors, we have to start looking holistically at what our money is doing while we sleep. Read More
Ethical wealth creation is possible.
Initially, I didn’t want to monetize my site because it was just my personal projects, but over time, I started putting in a lot of work into it. I wrote a few articles a week. Those articles improved in quality and content. I started getting traction. People left comments. I was wrestling with the idea of how to be true to the spirit of sustainability and zero waste, but get paid for my time and my passion. I value what I do and I hope if you are reading this, value the content I create as well. I decided then to run ads on my site and this is how I make money as a sustainability blogger. Read More
We all need to start thinking of money in terms of freedom. Money = Freedom. Today, most of us exchange our time for money. Yes, the money eventually pays for housing, for food, for clothing, for vacations etc., but at the heart of it, we are exchanging our time to buy other things.

For this month, I will be breaking down the Principles of "The Energy of Money" by Maria Nemeth. It is from 1997, but I find its content still relevant. Starting next week, I will break down 3 Principles from the book. Each Principle will ask that you take some action in order to fully harness the "energy of money." Whether we realize it or not, money is prevalent in the 16-20 hours that we are all awake. Money is a very powerful energy that dictates how we live our lives. If we do not acknowledge its power, we are left suffering in its wake. Read More
I've been reading a lot of the commencement speeches out there. While I am as idealistic as the next person, there are some practical advice that I think every college grad should know. Now it's been 11 years since I graduated college and the world has changed so much since then, but I wish I had been exposed to so much more so that I would have been a little bit more prepared. First of all congratulations for making it. You, my dear, still have a long life ahead which means you now have to start planning and working towards securing a better life for yourself and your significant other (even if you are still single.) Planning isn't necessarily a core idea to the YOLO generation, but trust me, it will help you in the long run. Read More
