I've been neck deep in startup work for the last year or so. It's time to catch up with the story and the goals I set up at the start of all this.
This is a moment in history when we need a revolution in entrepreneurial thinking. Major parts of the conversation about entrepreneurship have been taken over by big money and academics. There is a place for all that, but it leaves out the thousands of years of history that real people have been motivated to fix a problem, and small enterprises grow out of their solutions.
People can act entrepreneurially within their existing gigs, and we can also begin to plan and launch small community-oriented enterprises to fix the broken stuff all around us.
I'm reposting the original blog post from Sustainable Work below. Thirteen years this week and I still feel just as passionately about the work that needs to be done.
I'm glad you've found you're way here. Welcome!
I've got this idea that I'd like to start a million more small, sustainable enterprises. However, I'm 50 something and I have a perfectly wonderful 90 hour a week job now. So I'm just going to have to talk about it here in my spare time. Hopefully I can help other people along this path. Can we get to a million new small enterprises? Come on along. Let's try. I look forward to sharing this site with you.
All the best,
