Sustainable Work blog anniversary coming up. 13 years and growing!

The thirteenth anniversary of this Sustainable Work blog is coming up this week.

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,
