If you have a passion or are driven by a sense of mission, then this website is for you. It's packed with useful information to help you set up as an indie-green. Starting your own green business is hard. I know, I’ve done it myself and I’ve interviewed, visited and learned from hundreds of indie-greens over the years.
All those who have succeeded say it’s the best thing they could have done. Despite the sleepless nights and the uncertainty in the beginning. I share all I’ve learned, and continue to learn, from those who have done it, here on the website.
This is a learning and growing site. I continuously research ways to support the indie-green community. I study other sectors and make connections of how the green sector can make use of innovative new techniques and technologies.
I'm not altruistic. I want to learn to be more effective and make a decent living myself. I don’t just use the green sector for inspiration. I look at the arts world to understand how artists make a living and thrive, for example. We tend to think of green work largely as a science and use methods from that world to fund our work. But we are as badly funded (if not worse) than the arts and we can learn from centuries of experience from artists.
Or look at the personal development sector, life coaches and location independent gurus have worked out how to self-fund their projects, to earn good money and in many cases work where and when they want. They don’t have a special, high earning niche that would bring in money no matter what they do. They have a tried and tested formula. And guess what? Indie-greens can adapt parts of that formula to fund their own projects.
