I’m very excited to announce that I was invited to do a TEDx talk at the TEDxTeen event in London in January. At first I was unsure if the environmental impact of the flight was worthy but after some thinking I decided that I can make it worth it. There were no direct flights so I have decided to spend some time in each of the cities I am passing through to pass on some inspiration. In each city I’ll be presenting The Food Waste Fiasco and discussing how you can work to end hunger and food waste in your city. For the entire week l I will be at the service of the people in the cities I visit so please contact me if you’d like to do some good together. I’ll have a little free time in each city and would love to get together.
Welcome to my Tiny House!
Here is the first video of many to come from my off the grid, in the city, tiny house adventure. I’ve moved in and life is about to get real sweet. Well, it’s already sweet, but even sweeter now!
I just moved in a few days ago so a lot of work is sure to come, but soon I’ll be growing food, harvesting rain water, cooking with a rocket stove, powering up with solar panels, composting to create healthy soil, and using a compost toilet. I have no bills and no debt and will be living the good life in this 50 square foot tiny home! Simple living in the city!
I am looking for a backyard in San Diego for my tiny home! Particularly I am really looking for a place in Ocean Beach because it’s important for me to be close to my food source, People’s Co-op and I love this community.
Unique and delicious Walnut Burgers have recently joined the 1% for the Planet team! Walnut Burgers are a great vegetarian and healthy alternative to one of America’s classics. We at The Greenfield Group are friends with the Jenkin’s family and highly suggest trying this burger out. We have have personally had these nutty dishes a few times and think they taste great.
Have you heard of Bitcoin? It is the digital online payment network/finite currency that has been all over the news lately. It has very interesting properties, one of which being that there is no central authority. If you want to learn more about Bitcoin, feel free to watch this short video HERE, but beware, it is a bit confusing.
As an internet marketer, it is likely you will hear the question “what is my login for my Facebook page?”. It is also likely that will spend the next few minutes explaining to them how there is no login, but rather managers of specific pages.
Instead of logging into your business pages directly, you log into your personal Facebook profile that was previously made a manager.
Setting up a new business is fairly straight forward now, and easy to make admins. You can add as many admins as you would like, as well as be the admin on many different pages. Just follow the instructions found HERE. Most internet marketers actually prefer this method to the method Twitter uses, which you must log in to each account separately. Life is made a lot easier when you are managing a dozen company’s accounts.
In today’s technological world, just about every type of business should have a strong online presence. “Online presence” can man a variety of different things to different people and businesses. This is when you must decide, “should I do my search engine optimization in-house or hire a consultant?”
This question is not specifically an easy one to answer, unless you are personally an internet marketer. Assuming you do not know the inns and outs of online advertising and marketing, these are some of the important factors you should consider:
After spending some time utilizing search engine optimization techniques, one thing will become clear: the most productive thing you can do is come up with content others want to read. Sure you should edit your META and ALT tags, but if you want to help promote your site to it’s full potential, you need content other people actually want to look at.
So you are 6 months into content management, cranking out a blog once a week and not understanding why you aren’t seeing the ranking results you are hoping for. You check your WordPress blog daily and notice there are never any pingbacks, comments, or social sharing for any of these blogs. Why is this?
Bike to Work Day for 2013 is Friday, May 17th. This event is to help promote alternatives to driving a gas guzzling car to work every day and is always held on the third Friday in May, National Bike Month. For one day out of the year, individuals can take the time to get some exercise while learning about a new way to commute to work. Not only is biking to work healthier for the environment, it will keep a lot more money in your pocket.
Since Rob is out on an Across America cycling adventure, and I ride my bike to work a few times a week, we suggest that everyone gets the opportunity to sign up for this great event. Not only will this be a fun change of pace for the average commuter, if you register and track your trip, you get entered for a chance to win some great prizes, including a new bike.
There are pit stop locations, corporate challenges, maps, registration and much more information at the Bike to Work page.
If you do not live in San Diego, or even California, we still suggest you take this as an opportunity to ditch the four wheels for two and have some fun while doing it.
While Rob is cycling out in the middle of the country on his Bamboosero bike, I will be riding alongside the 8 on the great OB bike path when riding to work May 17th. I hope to see you right along side me!
