How Melanie Became a Writer for Green Businesses
Working as an exploration geologist I had the opportunity to go to seldom visited places around the globe that very few people ever get to experience. Over the years working in geology gave me a deeper understanding and appreciation, and connection to Gaia, our Earth. My transition from being an exploration geologist to a freelance writer all began when I attended a talk on Buddhist Economics at the John Molson School of Business in Montreal. Buddhist Economics follows the economic golden rule of sustainability-Leave the world a better place than you found it, take no more than what is necessary, try not to harm life or the environment, and make amends if you do. Immediately I knew, without a doubt, that a new vocation was strongly calling me. In 2014, I launched my writing business to further my commitments to the environment and sustainability with a focus on green innovative products, services, and organizations.
