Going Green Wednesday: Do You Have This Issue?

These days I’m trying just as hard as everyone else to do all I can to lessen my personal carbon footprint. I must admit that I am proud of myself because I am doing better than I expected. You see, I am a person that loves convenience some of you may call it being lazy, but, I prefer the term “personal convenience”. I am, wait a minute let me rephrase that. I used to be the type of person that would send shirts to the dry cleaners just so I wouldn’t have to iron. Please don’t judge me I went to Catholic school and my mother made me iron five shirts every Sunday; so you feel my pain now? So when I decided to seriously take my responsibility for the excess waste I was creating , I decided to eliminate or cut back on many things and dry cleaning was one of them. Don’t get me wrong I still send items like my winter coats to the dry cleaners. But by cutting back on this one convenience that made my life so much easier, I’m eliminating the use of the extra plastic that is used to cover my clothing.

Rolling with the Punches

I posted a tweet about a half hour ago stating "September has been a real beast". It seems with every great opportunity that has come our way this month we have encountered an equally great challenge or minor set back. But, hey, that's the life of an entrepreneur, especially a small business entreprener. The important thing is that we were able to roll with the punches, stayed focus and made it through. As for me, I'm starting my days much earlier.

How do you roll with punches when challenges or adversity come your way?
