Earth as Stakeholder : Our Alpha & Omega

Earth is our first resource, our primary resource. Without Earth, business is not possible. Furthermore, there is no possible way to offer a product or service without doing harm to her. Why then, is she so often the last to be considered, if considered at all, when it comes to our businesses? Let’s remind ourselves the intricate ways in which Earth supports our businesses, what her Return on Investment looks like and how we can create a symbiotic relationship based on collaboration. This discussion is non-industry specific so we must utilize critical thinking as to ways we can restructure our businesses to keep focused on this precious partner and collaborator.

"These groups give me a designated time to be intentional about thinking about my business." Network and collaborate ideas based on innovative business strategies. We'll get to know each other and cover a different subject each month with a brief seminar. This month is about connecting with our community.

Last group meeting we discussed being Value-Adding in Your Community. You can read the essay we covered here:
