Everyone knows that the environment is a mess, and the government isn’t doing much to correct the situation. That means, it’s up to US – everyday people – to do what we can to make a difference. Fortunately, there are many new jobs that people can jump into, to become America’s new working class: Greenpreneurs.
Perhaps the most visible way to switch gears is to go back to school – many people are choosing online universities – to get a new “green” degree. There are so many avenues to choose from, a quick internet search will give you many ideas. But that’s not the only way to make a great income.
For instance, I recently started working with a company that helps people to replace toxic household products with non-toxic household products. It is a well known fact that the products we use in our homes are poisoning us – causing asthma, cancer, fibromyalgia, ADHD, Autism, and many other illnesses and irreversible conditions. So, by simply switching to non-toxic, you are drastically improving not only the health of your family, but the environment as well! It’s a win-win situation.
That’s just one example of how you can become a Greenpreneur. There are also training centers, where you can learn to build green houses, become an energy auditor, or learn more about our very concerning fresh water situation. You have to ask yourself what you enjoy… this is always the first question you should ask when looking for a new career. What is it that you enjoy? And then, using that as a direction, explore all the possibilities!
As with anything, enthusiasm will open many doors. If you want to bounce some ideas off me, I’d love to hear from you!
