Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
This Wednesday evening, I will be convening the first of several sessions addressing the question some of us are asking of "How can I make a living doing something I love while caring for the Earth and the next seven generations?" This will, hopefully, lead to actions that transform our working lives. Along the way we will learn many things, such as:

For this first session, one of the guests will be Dave Pollard, author of Finding the Sweet Spot, which:
"provides a holistic framework for entrepreneurship. It can help you discover your own power, find the right partners, and experiment at the margin of what you know and the human needs you can fulfill. Fostering a Natural Enterprise is not only more fulfilling, but a sustainable competitive advantage every entrepreneur should explore. This book can help you discover what you were meant to do, find and fulfill unmet human needs and make it sustainable. If you consider yourself an entrepreneur, or want to unleash your creative side, or want to be an agent of positive change, or if now is the time for broader perspective--share this book."

I have a meeting on 2nd Wednesdays (and another meeting on 3rd Weds), so can't attend this week. Are you going to be considering other days?
It's looking like it will be a pretty good crowd - a possible 17 so far - for this Wednesday. One thing we will be discussing is optimum size of the group, and the possibility of splitting along various lines, such as smaller working groups for specific projects, pairing off into "learning buddy" relationships, geographically based groupings, and convening large crowds for workshops or big-picture collaboration/love-ins. I will also ask about what night is good for people, and I think it may even be worthwhile to consider doing a one-day networking and bonding event sometime. All of these possibilities point to increasing the frequency of activities and events. I am not stuck on Wednesdays at all.
