“More Good > Less Bad”

If there is one fundamental way of thinking we can change that will slowly ( or in some cases very quickly) make the world a better place, it is the simple understanding that even a little bit more good , is infinitely better than a lot less bad. Every single organization, business and person in the world can improve their business, their community and life in general by understanding and adopting the practice of doing a little more good, rather than trying to do a lot less bad. This has been presented to both high school students, and renewable energy entrepreneurs.


Ideal Audience:   Entrepreneurs, Business, organizations and students who actively want to do positive things, and have a positive impact on their bottom line, their environment, and surroundings, and those that wish to drive true improvement and progress.
