This map of renewable energy and energy efficiency companies from the Environmental Defense Fund is just plain cool:
The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) recently published an online map that identifies and profiles more than 1,200 companies in key manufacturing states that they see as poised create new jobs when Congress passes a cap on global warming pollution. The interactive map spotlights companies located in manufacturing regions, including those in communities in the rust belt and coal country.

“NOW is the Time to Prepare for Your Green Career”
Wednesday, October 14, 2009
6 – 7 pm Pacific Time
Green Career Expert and author of the upcoming “Green Careers for Dummies,” Carol McClelland, will reveal five actions you can take right NOW to move toward your green career – even in an economy that is shifting and growing.
As I have mentioned before, the renewable energy sector has been adding jobs – even during the recession. If you’ve been thinking about making a change, this is a good opportunity to see what steps you need to take to start your career in the green economy.
Frequent readers of this blog (hi Mom!) may recall that I’m big on business coach and productivity guru Dave Navarro, of Rock Your Day. If you are not familiar with Dave, here’s the money quote from his own “About ” page:
If you don’t have someone who kicks your ass on a regular basis, doesn’t put up with your excuses and demands that you rock out with all the potential that you have inside … well, you better find one fast. We all need people like that.
Dave has been that for me – through his blog, his weekly Monday Morning Kick in the Ass newsletter, and the tips he sends through the intertubes by way Twitter (@rockyourday).
Dave has a new blog post up that he calls his best ever: 7 Ways To Play A Bigger Game (With Free Workbook).
I agree. He walks you through a step-by-step process to help you identify your weak spots, and how to overcome them.
If you have ever thought – or even suspected – that you were holding yourself back, you owe it to yourself to check this out. It works – it has for me – and it’s free. That combination is tough to beat.
To paraphrase Dave: If you’re ready to demand more out of life, quit settling for excuses and make each day as satisfying as it can be, join us. You’ll thank yourself for it.
Go! NOW. And let me know what you think.
I’ve been a fan of Dave Navarro’s Rock Your Day blog for a while, so when he offered a free 40-page “starter kit” of sorts, I jumped at it.
It’s called “More Time NOW: How to Invest One Hour a Week to Free Up 1000 Hours a Year.” Even if he’s only half-right, you’re giving yourself more than an hour a day to work on your most important goals. How much is that worth to you?
Did I mention that it’s free?
