Set Up a Social Business Model

How does your business/service pay its bills and benefit its recipients?

How much profit do you need/want?

Where is the best place for it to go?

For yourself?

For your community?

what callas and tugs at your heart to create?

How does it feel to you?

What does it feel like when you imagine ourself doing it?

Who benefits?


Is is a good idea to expand?

How does i feel to be in blanche?

Who owns the company?



The bank?

Who makes the business decisions?



The bank?

What about cooperative ownership?  What are the steps to get that working?

How does the mind-set change?



What bank?!

The Reason

Do I just want to make this life prettier?

What would I need in order to do that?


Save and invest my money.

Keep to a routine.

Make sure I meet the right people.

Its totally doable.

But then, I run out.

What is behind this?

What is the reasoning?

Look good.  Have more stuff.  Be respected in a capitalist world.




So what kind of success is it really?

Just pretty.

The Closest Thing to Forgiveness

Events and Incidents build up in our lives and become positive or negative influences.

The more we can find the good in what happens to us, the closer we can come to forgiveness.

This is a speedy effort in our own favor.

It gives us positive momentum, no matter what negative things have occurred.

The gerbil wheel of repetition, going around and around mentally repeating the incidents either lead us toward happiness or to misery.

Misery is only interesting for so long.

Happiness and recognition in overcoming challenges moves us forward with strength and grace.

As we resolve the issues which continually crop up, we give ourselves momentum.

As we go over them, we bog ourselves down.

So, developing a habit of finding good no matter what puts us on the positive side of any life equation.

It attracts more good to us.

It begins to cancel out more and more of the negative until we fill in the void created by it with a much better and stronger image of what we can do.

It builds up the positive until one day we find ourselves in the actual place of forgiveness, both for ourselves and for any other parties.
