Thank you, Fabian.

I couldn’t agree more than we should give up dreams of 6 and 7 figure incomes. I think as long as that’s our focus, we’re really not seeing the bigger picture — we’re not seeing what’s really important in life. Finding ways to strive for growth while leaving a smaller footprint on the planet and reducing unnecessary expenditure is exactly what we need.

I love the idea of building business(es) around the idea of intentionally staying small while serving a useful purpose. Everett Bogue’s idea of a minimalist business is somewhere along these same lines, but I think we need more everyday solutions that solve real-world problems (as opposed to a business model that just involves selling digital products).

I think the final answer to this will be to build smaller communities that support each other, while using the wisdom of bigger communities to advance themselves.
