This second edition updates the excellent information of the '95 edition. It covers the many career opportunities in socially responsible and green businesses, industry, commerce, and non-profit organizations.

Part One identifies occupations and businesses that are "catalysts for a positive future," i.e., occupations and businesses that can make, or are making, a difference.

Part Two (A Ten Step Program for Principled Career Development) helps you define your personal areas of commitment. What ARE the personal, social and environmental values you hold and how can they help you make career and business decisions? The Ten Step Program is the heart of this book and well-worth a go-through.

  1. Wake Up
  2. Stabilize Your Life
  3. Create a Vibrant Support System
  4. Turn On the Light of Connection With Your World
  5. Cultivate Critical Research Skills
  6. Identify the Essence of Your Work in the World
  7. Commit Yourself to Doing That Work in Some Form, Whether Or Not Anyone is Paying You for it Right Now
  8. Let Go of Assumptions about How You Will Do Your Work
  9. Mine Your Experience for Gems
  10. Be a Co-Creator of the Workplace You Want

Part Three covers tools and resources. Compelling stories show you how ordinary people are doing good things and doing well.

This book is well worth reading if you are just starting your work life, if you are unhappy in your work life, or if you want to change your line of work or business. Making a Living While Making a Difference is an excellent self-help guide for anyone who wants to live and work consistently with the values they hold most dear.
