Empowering is always better than forcing.
I have built a business to work in an online industry to earn the funds and create the time and space to do what I love, creating, investigating and inventing in my passion for sustainability. My business is 100% digital, I produce no office waste and have set travel days that I book out of the office meetings and work into to restrict my travel, and enable me to get my work done. This being said, I need to have a high level of technology in my home, electricity and good internet to keep the business going. These come with their own unsustainable compromises that I contemplate options for regularly.
I live in a ‘normal’ house (from the outside any way 😉 ) in a regular suburb. My other half, who has his own thing going on, is respectful of my choices and views, but prefers not to live by candle light because the solar didn’t build enough back up to run the lights, or have to finish a long day with hand pumping the water tank to wash the dishes. This I understand. We find balance together as we are creating and implementing sustainable practices within our home and within all the activities that I undertake.
I take responsibility for my own actions and choices.
Now you know a little bit more about me, I look forward to learning more about you.
