Everyone knows that the environment is a mess, and the government is not doing much to rectify the situation. This means that it is up to the United States – ordinary 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 is to go back to school – many choose online universities – to get a new “green” degree. There are so many ways to choose from, a quick internet search will give you many ideas. But it is not the only way to get a good income.
For example, I recently started working with a company that helps people replace toxic household products with non-toxic household products. It is a well-known fact that the products we use in our homes poison us – causing asthma, cancer, fibromyalgia, ADHD, autism and many other diseases and irreversible conditions. So by simply switching to non-toxic, you drastically improve not only your family’s health, but also the environment! It’s a win-win situation.
This is just one example of how you can become a Greenpreneur. There are also training centers where you can learn how to build greenhouses, become energy auditors or learn more about our very urgent freshwater situation. You need to ask yourself what you think … this is always the first question you should ask when looking for a new career. What do you like? And then, with that as a direction, explore all the possibilities!
As with everything else, enthusiasm will open many doors. If you want to bounce off some ideas from me, I would love to hear from you!
