BP, one of the world’s largest carbon emitters and linked to a whole host of environmental damage, has a beautifully crafted website which depicts them ‘ reimagining energy ‘ on their journey to net-zero carbon emissions. This recent documented journey allows them to continue extracting oil and dabbling in fracking, while also being included in ‘green funds’ as they are considered as working towards ESG (Environment, Social Responsibility & Governance) goals.

I hate to break it to them, but many individuals don’t want to invest their money with polluters, despite their new found journey towards eco-enlightenment. To be seen as…


How water can damage businesses and profit margins

If you are a homeowner, perhaps you’ve thought about the risk of flooding or water damage to your home, but for most of us, water isn’t a risk we readily think about. However, with water being the single thing that we need to survive on a day to day basis, it’s something we foolishly ignore.

According to the UN, the demand for water worldwide will be 40% greater than its supply in 2030, and that’s bad news for us all — especially those of us that are flushing perfectly good drinking water…


Before you invest in BTC, you need to consider what it is

One of the most common questions people ask is ‘how do I buy Bitcoin?’ aka which exchange is best, but I never hear anyone discuss a plan for what they are going to do once they acquire some coins (or a fraction of a coin). People don’t know because many don’t know the mechanics behind BTC, nor have they thought about what it could become in the future. They also haven’t considered that a lot of the crypto world hasn’t been defined or created yet. We are just…


What if we could make money by making the world a better place for everyone?

In today’s world, money makes money. If you have savings, you expect to get paid an interest on them. If you hold stocks & shares, you are only doing so for the return on investment (ROI). Many people buy houses and rental lets to make an income on them in the long run. There is a whole movement (called Financial Independence) that focuses on accumulating enough money to live off the returns. We’ve turned money from what it is — a store of value —…


What would you do if you didn’t have an income right now?

Covid19 has put millions of people out of work — and millions more are feeling unsure about the future. At the same time, 2020 has allowed many people to start creating things, launching ideas and online businesses; because for every industry in decline, other ones are growing exponentially.

Covid19 has taught us many different things, but one of them is to plan for emergencies. …


There is more to life than money

I was 30 when I discovered the F.I.R.E. (Financial Independence, Retire Early) movement. However, I was aware of the frugal ways of Mr. Money Moustache, and through my travels, I had met a few people who were financially independent already. I had met a man who had inherited a house in London — nothing fancy, but it had enough bedrooms to create a monthly income of around £1,500-£2,000. There was a digital nomad who had bought a popular website domain and was living off ads, referral links and an ebook sold on the site. And I once had coffee with…

Back in July, Wilbert Wynnberg contacted me with an idea. His business conferences had been put on hold due to the pandemic, but he still wanted to connect and share with others, and positively impact as many lives as possible. His goal was to help unleash peoples potential and give a voice to great ideas, and to the entrepreneurs who grind away today to make a better future for us all tomorrow.

Think Act Prosper Magazine was born.

As Wynnberg embarked on a journey to write 3 books, truly testing his 90 day formula


You need to understand how money works before you can become rich

In its abstract form, money is one of the most incredible inventions mankind has ever dreamt up. It is a store of value (in a representative item such as a shell, a piece of gold, or a paper bank note) that creates a medium of exchange for trades. We have come a long way from trading shells, having building Wall Street companies, complex financial instruments and Billionaires, but a form of money has always been with us and the underlying concepts have stayed mostly the same.

Careers shouldn’t be linear or singular; they should be rich, deep and focused.

The concept of portfolio careers has been steadily gaining popularity since 2012 when Cal Newport released, ‘So Good They Can’t Ignore You’. In his book, Newport discusses the idea of having career capital, which he defines as:

“Skills you have that are both rare and valuable and that can be used as leverage in defining your career.”

However, the concept of a portfolio career has become diluted of late. It’s become an excuse for people to hop around different industry sectors, trying to find their ‘passion’ or something that excites them for a while. While there is nothing wrong with…

If 2019 was the year of shameless self-promotion on LinkedIn, 2020 is the year of being #OpenToWork.

Our LinkedIn news feeds have changed from work selfies and ‘Employee of the Month’ awards, to carefully created goodbye speeches and #OpenToWork posts passively asking connections to help in their job search.

While the intention is good, the reaction to these public displays of job seeking hasn’t been thought through by the poster. …
