New Boss Every 7 Days

I’ve been following Sean Aiken and his One Week Job Project for a while now. He’s finishing up his documentary that will feature him working a job a week for 52 weeks. It will be available later this year. Sean promotes and has the desire to encourage us all to match our skill sets with our personalities, values and passions to make our careers. I couldn’t agree with him more. His documentary will be a brilliant thing for young people (or all ages for that matter) to be able to watch and learn from.

Thanks to Sean and everyone who has and is participating in this project. Yours is one of the many insightful ones that we’ll be able follow and draw inspiration from. It will keep us all confident knowing that whatever is out there that we want, we can go get it at any time.

Bonus; I’ve been in touch with Sean, and he and I are going to get together when I’m in Vancouver soon during my own project. How fun! Stay tuned for stories about our visit…


Local Dirt Tastes Delicious

Got an excuse as to why you can’t find or don’t buy from farms close to your home? Here’s a solution! I recently found Local Dirt. Whether you’re a farmer trying to sell your wares or a hungry for fresh deliciousness consumer- ready to buy, here’s your hub. Poke around the site and find all the local food to fill your belly you’d ever need. 

Why buy local? Here’s a couple interesting facts, in case for some reason we actually still have to convince you that it’s the best idea ever:
*A typical carrot has to travel 1,838 miles to reach your dinner table. 
(Um, that’s like clear across the flipping country. Absurd. Lets not promote that.)
*Farmers’ markets enable farmers to keep 80 to 90 cents of each dollar spent by the consumer. 
(Incredible! Up and atem with your coffee in your travel mug this Saturday morning and head on down to your local market. Stock up and throw a bunch of stuff in a crock pot for a yummy get together with your family and friends.)
See? It’s so easy!
