Why a small fee? Women are often asked to share their life's work for free or "for exposure." In these interviews, the speakers share the culmination of their learning on their right livelihood path, and this information is super valuable! So Regenepreneurs and the speakers share the income from these interviews, as part of our Abundance Models that are based on synergies, not on outdated ideas about women.
The past interviews were conducted back when I was piloting my programs with the word "Thrivelihood."
What’s A Thrivelihood?
When I interviewed Jeanine Carlson for my “Pattern Language for Women in Permaculture” article, she explained a model for embedding high-quality, nature-based child care into permaculture courses so that more women and families could attend. The solution was to see the young ones as precious assets to the learning community, and to have that be the core of the business model. As a result, the teaching staff included licensed childcare professionals. During morning sessions, the kids and adults learned separately–the children in outdoor adventures. Lunch was a community affair, and the afternoons were hands-on applications of permaculture for the entire group. The outcomes were happy families, more women teaching and learning, and the entire learning experience was richer for everyone because of the intergenerational relationships. This model “re-values” the caring work and weaving work–that’s often done by women, for little or no pay. Jeanine emphasized that this work shouldn’t go unpaid, and women shouldn’t just eke out a living, they should be thriving in this work—she said “we even call it a thrivelihood!”
That word encapsulated for me an audacious and timely vision that so many of us share—one of people doing the regenerative work they love; having ample time to recharge and connect with Beloveds, and standing in the value of their contributions towards an abundant future for all.
Since then, the women I've worked with have emphasized over and over that they want to understand how to harness the tools of entrepreneurship in service to co-creating our regenerative future, so I've transitioned to using the term Regenepreneurs.
