Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Well, this is a hard question.

I've never been good at imagining my life in the future. I think that a part of that has to do with why I'm a good entrepreneur- the ability to seize opportunities as they arrive and to plan on the fly has served me well in my life thus far.

Recently, though, I have invested in my future- going back to graduate school, focusing on my career and dreams, and taking steps to insure that I can make my future into what I hope it to be.

There are things I need, in order to be happy, and there are things I want, in order to add comfort to my life. Something that I need is a feeling that I am making some difference in the world; improving lives and changing the way that others interact with the world in a positive way.
Things I want are some measures of success in my goals- a successful business, a good reputation, friends of like mind and goals surrounding me...

I can only hope that by 2020 I will have started my business that attempts to address creating positive change, the business will have been successful, and will be looking at expansion across different areas nationally and globally.

Wise words. I'm not quite ready to start my business yet (want to finish up school first), but you're right that action is extremely important!

A middle point for me would be putting together a team I think could run the business and be passionate about it. For me, that involves a lot of networking to find the right bunch of people.

Good things happen to those who wait. I'm sure Babson will prepare you to seize the opprtunity to make a difference. You receive +1 for courage for investing in the power of education to align with your goals of entrepreneurship. There is a context for your current actions. Great!!!

just when you are ready, let me know if you would like to partner in anything related to education based social enterprise. I am a Teach India fellow currently and I see education as an opportunity to both give something relevant and create wealth...so there is an enlightened self interest and people like yourself might make a good collaborator I reckon...let's see how we can specifically target the Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid.....

For a majority of us today, there can be no motivation greater than to make money and material wealth unless we are born with billions....the trick is to make money as quickly as we can so that we can connect to greater needs of our life....based on Maslow's Philosophy of Self Actualisation.

As an average change maker but genuinely passionate nonetheless, I feel there is a real sense of excitement to see primary education in India creating contextual relevance of making little kids enablers of real change in future and to make the schools and all learning resources as part of a platform to 'design think' and create solutions to everyday problems and be change makers as well....

I wish to build this contagion effect through primary education...here is also someone who did exactly that for real while I am still talking.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
