So, last week. I wrote two articles. Both pieces are within a medium range in terms of length. And both I consider very important.
The twist is that they kind of contradict each other.
In the first one, I sum up most of what is askew with our modern society. More particularly, the mindset that prevents us from ever having a disposal portion of cash and pushes us towards continuous lurking from store to store. I define this under the umbrella term materialism.
You can read it here:
Materialism In Society And How We Can Overcome It
As you'll note if you happen to read it, the piece comes with a paper bag of despair. But there is also plenty of practical stuff packed in there, too.
And while in the first, I try to convince you to lower your consumption.
In the second one, I do the opposite.
But not just to randomly throw your money in the air. It's something else. It's a pledge to be more mindful about how you allocate your cash - think about what type of businesses you support.
Are you mostly investing in gigantic corporations, or you're helping small owners keep working on what they do best?
I labeled the article: Why Support Small Businesses and Solo Creators?
I'm almost certain that online creators will find the piece appealing. But my hope is that others will also find it interesting.
I think that a lot of people are strangely unaware of how depressing it is for someone creating content to don't receive support. That's why I wanted to bring more attention to the topic.
