How to Exponentially Magnify Your Positive Impact for the Environment

I apologize for taking a hiatus from posting. My Macbook RAM and hard drive died and I have finally resuscitated the little guy. I’ve also been super busy organizing a free online telesummit designed to empower and uplift women around the world.

So, this is a very special blog entry. It’s not for everyone—it’s for those of you who want to learn how you can exponentially magnify everything you do for the environment.

I watched a TV show several years ago that followed a couple who went from their normal lifestyle to living off the grid in a vegan community that pretty much lived like pioneers in order to minimize their environmental impact. What surprised me was that even though they had scaled everything down to the bare minimum, they still had a relatively large carbon footprint.

This got me thinking, that as an individual, it’s absolutely awesome what you and your cat(s) do to reduce, reuse and recycle. However, your biggest impact lies in being able to multiply that effect exponentially. And just how do you do that?

You reach out to others!

I chose to create this blog and write a green cat toy book. From a simple idea less than 3 years ago, Green Little Cat has grown to receive almost 50,000 visits per year. That’s a lot of cats and cat lovers who are making small changes that add up HUGE for the environment. It also led to a writing gig for Catster’s green section and Catster reaches MILLIONS of cat owners.

So, what environmental message do you have to share? Are you ready to step into your brilliance and start inspiring others? There are no excuses for not starting right NOW.

It’s free to start a blog and you will be able to find the time and energy to do what you’re passionate about. Heck, for two years of this blog, I was pregnant and looking after an infant full-time. If I can find time to write, you can too.

If you’d like more inspiration to discover how you can magnify your reach to create a greener planet, I invite you to attend the free teleconference that I’m organizing. The Lotus Blossoming Telesummit features an international panel of speakers who will spark your imagination and ignite your creativity.

It begins on August 8th and runs for 3 weeks and you can listen in online at your convenience.

One of the speakers, Stacie Tamaki, is an award-winning blogger who will be sharing how to make a difference in the world by embracing your differences. Gen Y Tech Evangelist, Sacha Chua will be speaking about how to use social media to connect with others. And of course, I will be sharing how to take your passion and make it happen easily and effortlessly ;).

Got a Cat from Hell?
If So, You’ll Enjoy This Fun Sponsored Video

I don’t usually write sponsored posts, but when I heard the folks at Animal Planet were calling on cat lovers to spread the word about their pawsome TV show, “My Cat From Hell”, I couldn’t resist.

I’d seen a casting call months earlier and seriously considered submitting an entry for Furball. His food demands, early morning wake-up yowls, carpet scratching and penchant for attacking people who touch him, made him a likely candidate. Of course, he is also my lovable cat— sweet, smart, super-friendly (that’s why he gets in trouble because people WANT to pet him) and feisty.

Check out this video of some of the devilish cats in Animal Planet’s My Cat From Hell. Most cat lovers including myself can relate to some of these classic cat moves. Furball was especially fond of the “leg hug” until he was about 3 years old.

The cats in this TV series cause some serious rifts amongst their human owners too with couples on the verge of breaking up and friends fighting with each other.

Cat listener, Jackson Galaxy, steps in to help and he believes that most of the problems are caused by people. I’d have to agree. While I was watching this video, I saw a whole bunch of things that I’d NEVER do with Furball because they’d encourage aggressive behavior.

I love how Galaxy (seriously, is that his real name?) says that, “Dealing with these out-of-control cats can be easier than dealing with out-of-touch owners, and fixing people first can often be the cure all for feline vexations.”

You can watch Galaxy work his cat soothing magic on all new episodes of My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet, Saturdays at 8pm e/p.
