There is no business like regenerative business! It seems like we are finding a pattern here on the Seeds of Tao Podcast and we're changing the narrative for what it means to build businesses and be an entrepreneur.
Ethan Wright is one of those regenpreneurs changing the narrative and showing us what it means to create a business and satisfy the needs of not only the market, but our people, planet, and future. In Ethan's story, we'll talk about the businesses he's started and helped to start and how they fulfill gaps in regeneration. How he goes about his entrepreneurial endeavors is a helpful reminder for all regenpreneurs as we identify needs and create products and services that fulfill those needs in a holistic way.
If you're wanting to know more about what Ethan's up to and get in touch with him he's asked that you connect with him on LinkedIn. Hope you enjoy the episode and don't forget to continue the conversation in the Pando Academy Commons Slack...

Hey regenpreneur friends... Have you ever reached burnout with your work? I never thought it would be possible when doing purpose-driven work, but it can happen even when you're doing work that you're passionate about. Today we have an amazing guest that dives deep with us and takes us all on a journey of reflection. I guess I can only speak for myself, but I definitely recognized the moments in my life where I wasn't living my authentic self and had reached burnout. Maybe you're there and this episode is just for you or maybe you can use this episode as a cautionary tale and "what to do" when you feel like you're approaching burnout. Whatever the case, Anamaria and I hope it is of help to you. Please enjoy =)

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you intentionally have to let every preconceived plan go and allow yourself space to readjust to your life? This past week one of those weeks. In fact, it’s probably been the last two weeks that I’ve been giving myself space. I’ve put my daily routines on hold. Given myself the opportunity to take meetings I normally wouldn’t take, cancel meetings I normally would take, and work on projects that I normally say “not right now” to. Today’s podcast was one of those “not right now” projects that have been on my mind, but boy I’m sure glad I took the time to do it because I was needing it and I have a feeling that someone else will need this as well.
It amazes me how many wonderful people are doing work they are called to do within the umbrella of permaculture, regeneration, and whatever label you can put on the work of caring for people, the planet and the future. What amazes me, even more, is that there is so much diversity in this work. Not one person that I have interviewed is going about their journey towards regeneration in the same way. We are hopefully moving forward along the same path, but everyone has their own way of doing so.
Juan Daza Arévalo definitely has his own approach to creating the change he wishes to see and it is one we can all learn from. In our interview, Juan shares a part of his journey in finding value within any living system we interact with and using that value to create solutions for the future. He uses his experience as a businessman and his understanding as a permaculturist to find that value and discover the solutions that are linked to it. For those that may not have...

This week we have two wonderful women on the podcast. I do love that alliteration “wonderful women” and it fits quite well for Leonie and Chloe. They have worked together as a couple to create an amazing and needed business together where they help educate and empower people to create intentional communities all over the world. The business is Whole Systems Network and they have a course coming up real soon on March 16th called Grounding Your Village Course. If you’ve ever thought of or would like to start your own intentional community or ecovillage then you really do have to give this a look. It’s quite comprehensive and they have a number of experts to cover just about everything you need to know about the process and work of building an IC.
