The quiet achievers of the world are often relatively unknown. They improve the lives of others without making too much of a noise about it. I have been researching, and writing about, socially and environmentally beneficial enterprises for some time now. You will find an overview mainly on my Continual Journeys blog.
Here are links to a few short blog posts to introduce you to my investigations:
Travels of a social entrepreneur
Life, work and travel
The journey through life
In 2009, I came across a couple of interesting articles. They might be regarded as somewhat insensitive in parts, but I think they may also help to boost creativity, self-esteem and a sense of purpose for anyone looking for a new direction in life. They were on my Continual Journeys blog but I think they may be more suitable here now:
10 reasons you should never get a job
Making money in a recession
If you have managed to avoid being an employee, underemployed or unemployed recently, do you consider yourself to be a quiet entrepreneur?
