I'm an advocate for things that are free and accessible to all. We all breathe and so if something as common as that can be utilised as form of deep care for your body and nervous system, I think it's worth a try. If you can afford to pay for things that's great but I … Continue reading Championing free stuff
Are sustainable products profitable?
A few months back, I was looking at buying some reusable items that would in the long term save me money and reduce waste. After a quick google I learned that this item could be used hundreds of times (one site even claimed up to 1000) before needing to be replaced. And so I got … Continue reading Are sustainable products profitable?
When free is better than cheap

Doing so allows you to make a living from what you do whilst also ensuring that those that can't afford … Continue reading When free is better than cheap
5 ways to convince people to spend money
I recently got thinking about some of the ways we're persuaded to spend money.

At a young age some people totally rule out subjects like Math, Science, History or Art simple because of who the information is coming from. … Continue reading So much more than the room you’re sitting in

Instead of finding it enticing, I just find it overwhelming, … Continue reading Falling for a scam
