It’s about time you were taken more seriously—that you gave your own self a raise and promotion, and that you gave yourself more power in the workplace. It’s easier than you think, too—just start embracing “green think,” and quickly discover that your fellow workers will begin to think the world of you as you think more of the world.
Maybe you are tired of working for “The Man” and are contemplating branching out on your own and becoming your own business person. This may involve selling a green product or service—such as eco-friendly beauty products or even a green home-cleaning service.
Either way, by going green in business, you essentially are promoting yourself to the status of a company owner, and because green goods are in high demand these days, you can expect an economy-driven pay raise as well.
If you’re not crazy about the idea of assuming the risk of running your own business, maybe you’re still tired of being stagnant in your role and want to breathe new life into your job: Just consider what you can do to make it easier for future generations to “breathe” easy in a constantly changing world.
