“Charlotte Squire is one of the most positive, enthusiastic people I know.” Anna LakemanMentor Client, 2011

Useful podcast: Listen to Charlotte Squire’s recent half-hour radio interview on Fresh FM where she talks about Happyzine, her history as a green dreamer, and the Green Dream Launch Pad Course.  Note: though Charlotte refers to the May Green Dream Launch Pad Course in this interview, the same information applies to the June course.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you please tell me how it works online – do we do it by skype? Or…? Just wondering how it is interactive? S’cuse my technological ignorance!

It works online via videos that I post up for you to watch in your own time.  We’re also using a private facebook group within which we’ll be talking right through the month and encouraging each other.  I will be asking students to ‘buddy up’ with one person, and each ‘couple’ will be asked to have a skype or phone chat once a week.  Oh and one more thing – students will also be supported to find one or more mentors to guide them into the future.   So the course is designed to inform, inspire and build community.

I don’t have a complete idea for a green career/business but know I do want to create my next career step in that direction….do I need to have something defined to do this course?

The fact that you don’t have a complete idea for a green career/business is PERFECT.  I devote most of the first session to this very issue – to helping people clarify their passions and strengths and working out how they could apply them in service of the planet.

How is the course organised?

The structure of the course is:

Week one: Dream – introduction, how the law of attraction will support your green dream, blue sky brainstorming
Week two: Design – setting specific, measurable goals
Week three: Strategise – finding a mentor, getting clear about financial goals
Week four: Launch – developing project presentations for target communities
