  2. This is such a relevant conversation; we don’t get enough sources for our ideas, sometimes we let a great idea get snuffed out and sometimes we pursue a bump-filled road that could have been averted – with info from a mentor. Getting more access to more people and ideas is the key; why can’t we learn from others?

  3. Hello,

    My name is Sam Marquit, I am an independent ‘green’ contractor and co-author of Fair Marquit Value I am wondering if you’re interested in featuring me on your blog because I would love a chance to speak with your readers about the idea of environmentally responsible tourism as it’s applied in modern day travel and stay.

    If you think this topic, or any other for that matter, would be of interest to your readers, please let me know and I can begin drafting up something that I believe will mesh with your blog very well.

    I look forward to hearing back from you; hopefully we can work together on spreading the word on important topics like this as they relate to environmental awareness!

    I look forward to hearing from you,
